Psalms 63


God is Worthy of Praise

A psalm to David; in his being in the wilderness of Judah.

1O God, my God, to you I rise early. [2thirsted for 3you 1My soul]. How often [2longed for you 1my flesh] in [6land 1a barren 2and 3untrodden 4and 5waterless]. 2Thus in the holy place I appeared to you, to behold your power and your glory. 3For [2is better 1your mercy] than life. My lips shall praise you; 4thus will I bless you in my life; [3in 4your name 1I will lift 2my hands]. 5As of fat and fatness may [2be filled 1my soul]; and with lips of exultation [2shall praise 1my mouth]. 6Forasmuch as I remembered you upon my strewn bed; at the dawns I meditated on you. 7For you are my helper, and in the protection of your wings I shall exult. 8[2shall cleave 1My soul] after you; [4of me 1but 3took hold 2your right hand]. 9But they [3in 4folly 1seek 2my soul]; they shall enter into the lowermost part of the earth. 10They shall be delivered up into the hands of the broadsword; [2portions 3for foxes 1they will be]. 11But the king shall be glad upon God; [5shall be praised 1all 2swearing by an oath 3in 4him], for he obstructed the mouth of the ones speaking unjustly.
