Psalm 63
King James BibleInternational Standard Version
1A Psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Judah. 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;1God, you are my God! I will fervently seek you. My soul thirsts for you; my flesh longs for you in a dry, weary, and parched land.
2To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary.2So I have looked for you in the sanctuary, to behold your power and glory.
3Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee.3Because your gracious love is better than life itself, my lips will praise you.
4Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in thy name.4So I will bless you as long as I live; I will lift up my hands in your name.
5My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips:5Just as I am satisfied with the choicest of foods, so my lips will praise you joyfully.
6When I remember thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the night watches.6When I think of you in bed, I will meditate on you in the night watches.
7Because thou hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice.7For you have been my strength, and in the shadow of your wings I will shout for joy.
8My soul followeth hard after thee: thy right hand upholdeth me.8My soul clings to you, even as your right hand supports me.
9But those that seek my soul, to destroy it, shall go into the lower parts of the earth.9But as for those who seek to destroy me, they will go down to the depths of the earth;
10They shall fall by the sword: they shall be a portion for foxes.10May they be given over to the power of the sword; may they become carrion for jackals.
11But 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.11But as for the king, he will rejoice in God. Indeed, everyone who swears by God will exult, because the mouths of liars will be silenced.
