Psalms 63

1A Psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Judah. O God, thou art my God; earnestly will I seek thee: My soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee, In a dry and weary land, where no water is. 2So have I looked upon thee in the sanctuary, To see thy power and thy glory.

3Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, My lips shall praise thee. 4So will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in thy name. 5My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; And my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips;
1) Heb fat
6When I remember thee upon my bed, And meditate on thee in the night-watches.
1) Or I meditate

7For thou hast been my help, And in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice. 8My soul followeth hard after thee: Thy right hand upholdeth me. 9But those that seek my soul, to destroy it, Shall go into the lower parts of the earth.
1) Or shall be destroyed; They shall etc
10They shall be given over to the power of the sword: They shall be a portion for foxes.
1) Or poured out by 2) Or jackals
11But the king shall rejoice in God: Every one that sweareth by him shall glory; For the mouth of them that speak lies shall be stopped.
