A Psalm of David, [a]when he was in the wilderness of Judah.
63 God, You are my God; I shall be watching for You; My soul thirsts for You, my flesh yearns for You, In a dry and exhausted land where there is no water. 2 So have I seen You in the sanctuary, To see Your power and glory. 3 Because Your [b]favor is better than life, My lips will praise You. 4 So I will bless You as long as I live; I will lift up my hands in Your name. 5 My soul is satisfied as with fat and fatness, And my mouth offers praises with joyful lips.
6 When I remember You on my bed, I meditate on You in the night watches, 7 For You have been my help, And in the shadow of Your wings I sing for joy. 8 My soul clings [c]to You; Your right hand takes hold of me.
9 But those who seek my [d]life to destroy it, Will go into the [e]depths of the earth. 10 [f]They will be [g]turned over to the power of the sword; They will be a [h]prey for foxes. 11 But the king will rejoice in God; Everyone who swears by Him will boast, For the mouths of those who speak lies will be stopped.
