Psalm 63 New American Standard Bible

God Satisfies the Thirsting Soul

63 1  O God , You are my God ; I shall seek You earnestly ; My soul thirsts for You, my flesh yearns for You, In a dry and weary land where there is no water . 2  Thus I have seen You in the sanctuary , To see Your power and Your glory .

3  Because Your lovingkindness 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 marrow 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 to You; Your right hand upholds me. 9  But those who seek my life to destroy it, Will go into the depths of the earth . 10  They will be delivered over to the power of the sword ; They will be a prey for foxes . 11  But the king will rejoice in God ; Everyone who swears by Him will glory , For the mouths of those who speak lies will be stopped .
