Bible: Psalms 63
Psalm 63 1
63:1 A psalm of David, written when he was in the Judean wilderness. 2
O God, you are my God! I long for you! 3
My soul thirsts 4 for you,
my flesh yearns for you,
in a dry and parched 5 land where there is no water.
and witnessed 8 your power and splendor.
my lips will praise you.
63:4 For this reason 11 I will praise you while I live;
in your name I will lift up my hands. 12
My mouth joyfully praises you, 15
63:6 whenever 16 I remember you on my bed,
and think about you during the nighttime hours.
63:7 For you are my deliverer; 17
under your wings 18 I rejoice.
your right hand upholds me.
63:9 Enemies seek to destroy my life, 21
but they will descend into the depths of the earth. 22
63:10 Each one will be handed over to the sword; 23
their corpses will be eaten by jackals. 24
63:11 But the king 25 will rejoice in God;
everyone who takes oaths in his name 26 will boast,
for the mouths of those who speak lies will be shut up. 27
