Psalms - Chapter 63 | New King James Version

  • 1. A Psalm of David when he was in the wilderness of Judah. O God, You are my God; Early will I seek You; My soul thirsts for You; My flesh longs for You In a dry and thirsty land Where there is no water.
  • 2. So I have looked for You in the sanctuary, To see Your power and Your glory.
  • 3. Because Your lovingkindness is better than life, My lips shall praise You.
  • 4. Thus I will bless You while I live; I will lift up my hands in Your name.
  • 5. My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness, And my mouth shall praise You with joyful lips.
  • 6. When I remember You on my bed, I meditate on You in the night watches.
  • 7. Because You have been my help, Therefore in the shadow of Your wings I will rejoice.
  • 8. My soul follows close behind You; Your right hand upholds me.
  • 9. But those who seek my life, 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 jackals.
  • 11. But the king shall rejoice in God; Everyone who swears by Him shall glory; But the mouth of those who speak lies shall be stopped.
