Psalm 63


Psalm 63 from the Holy Bible.

A psalm of King David, in the Desert of Judah.

Written when King David was fleeing in the desert wilderness.


Psalm 63

The Bible

  O God, thou art my God;
  early will I seek thee:
  my soul thirsteth for thee,
  my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land,
  where no water is;

  to see thy power and thy glory,
  so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary.

  Because thy loving-kindness is better than life,
  my lips shall praise thee.

  Thus will I bless thee while I live:
  I will lift up my hands in thy name.

  My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness;
  and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips:
  when I remember thee upon my bed,
  and meditate on thee in the night watches.

  Because thou hast been my help,
  therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice.

  My soul followeth hard after thee:
  thy right hand upholdeth me.

  But those that seek my soul, to destroy it,
  shall go into the lower parts of the earth.

  They shall fall by the sword:
  they shall be a portion for foxes.

  But the king shall rejoice in God;
  every one that sweareth by him shall glory:
  but the mouth of them that speak lies shall be stopped.
