Psalms 63 (asv)

Psalms 63 (asv)

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

63:1O God, thou art my God; earnestly will I seek thee:

My soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee,

In a dry and weary land, where no water is.

63:2So have I looked upon thee in the sanctuary,

To see thy power and thy glory.

63:3Because thy lovingkindness is better than life,

My lips shall praise thee.

63:4So will I bless thee while I live:

I will lift up my hands in thy name.

63:5My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness;

And my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips;

63:6When I remember thee upon my bed,

And meditate on thee in the night-watches.

63:7For thou hast been my help,

And in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice.

63:8My soul followeth hard after thee:

Thy right hand upholdeth me.

63:9But those that seek my soul, to destroy it,

Shall go into the lower parts of the earth.

63:10They shall be given over to the power of the sword:

They shall be a portion for foxes.

63:11But the king shall rejoice in God:

Every one that sweareth by him shall glory;

For the mouth of them that speak lies shall be stopped.
