Chapter 63

1


 

  A Psalm. Of David. When he was in the waste land of Judah.
O God, you are my God; early will I make my search for you: my soul is dry for need of you, my flesh is wasted with desire for you, as a dry and burning land where no water is;  

 

 


2


 

  To see your power and your glory, as I have seen you in the holy place.  

 

 


3


 

  Because your mercy is better than life, my lips will give you praise.  

 

 


4


 

  So will I go on blessing you all my life, lifting up my hands in your name.  

 

 


5


 

  My soul will be comforted, as with good food; and my mouth will give you praise with songs of joy;  

 

 


6


 

  When the memory of you comes to me on my bed, and when I give thought to you in the night-time.  

 

 


7


 

  Because you have been my help, I will have joy in the shade of your wings.  

 

 


8


 

  My soul keeps ever near you: your right hand is my support.  

 

 


9


 

  But those whose desire is my soul's destruction will go down to the lower parts of the earth.  

 

 


10


 

  They will be cut off by the sword; they will be food for foxes.  

 

 


11


 

  But the king will have joy in God; everyone who takes an oath by him will have cause for pride; but the false mouth will be stopped.
