ESV — Psalm 63

My Soul Thirsts for You

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

63  O God, you are my God; tearnestly I seek you;

umy soul thirsts for you;

my flesh faints for you,

as in va dry and weary land where there is no water.

So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary,

beholding wyour power and glory.

Because your xsteadfast love is better than life,

my lips will praise you.

So I will bless you yas long as I live;

in your zname I will alift up my hands.

My soul will be bsatisfied as with fat and rich food,

and my mouth will praise you with joyful lips,

when I remember you cupon my bed,

and meditate on you in cthe watches of the night;

for you have been my help,

and in dthe shadow of your wings I will sing for joy.

My soul eclings to you;

your right hand fupholds me.

But those who seek to destroy my life

gshall go down into hthe depths of the earth;

10  they shall be given over to the power of the sword;

they shall be a portion for jackals.

11  But ithe king shall rejoice in God;

all who jswear by him shall exult,

kfor the mouths of lliars will be stopped.
