Psalm 63

David thirsts for God, whom he praises with joyful lips.

A Psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Judah.

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

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

 Because thy lovingkindness is abetter than life, my lips shall praise thee.

 Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my ahands 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 abed, and bmeditate 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.

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

 11 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.
