Psalms 63

Praise God Who Satisfies

1A Davidic psalm. When he was in the Wilderness of Judah. a

God, You are my God; I eagerly seek You.
I thirst for You;
my body faints for You
in a land that is dry, desolate, and without water. b
2 So I gaze on You in the sanctuary
to see Your strength and Your glory. c

3 My lips will glorify You
because Your faithful love is better than life. d
4 So I will praise You as long as I live;
at Your name, I will lift up my hands. e
5 You satisfy me as with rich food;
Lit with fat and fatness
my mouth will praise You with joyful lips. h

6 When I think of You as I lie on my bed,
I meditate on You during the night watches i
7 because You are my helper; j
I will rejoice in the shadow of Your wings. k
8 I follow close to You;
Your right hand holds on to me. l

9 But those who seek to destroy my life
will go into the depths of the earth. m
10 They will be given over to the power of the sword; n
they will become the jackals’ prey.
11 But the king will rejoice in God; o
all who swear by Him
Or him
will boast,
for the mouths of liars will be shut. q
