Psalm 63
International Standard Version Par ▾ 

A Davidic Psalm, while he was in the Judean wilderness.

Joyful Trust in God

1God, you are my God!

I will fervently seek you.

My soul thirsts for you;

my flesh longs for you in a dry, weary, and parched land.

2So I have looked for you in the sanctuary,

to behold your power and glory.

3Because your gracious love is better than life itself,

my lips will praise you.

4So I will bless you as long as I live;

I will lift up my hands in your name.

5Just as I am satisfied with the choicest of foods,a

so my lips will praise you joyfully.

6When I think of you in bed,

I will meditate on you in the night watches.

7For you have been my strength,

and in the shadow of your wings I will shout for joy.

8My soul clings to you,

even as your right hand supports me.

9But as for those who seek to destroy me,

they will go down to the depths of the earth;

10May they be given over to the power ofb the sword;

may they become carrion for jackals.

11But as for the king,

he will rejoice in God.

Indeed, everyone who swears by Godc will exult,

because the mouths of liars will be silenced.
