Psalm 63:1-6 (NET Bible)

  • A psalm of David, written when he was in the Judean wilderness.

  • 1 O God, you are my God! I long for you! My soul thirsts for you, my flesh yearns for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water. 2 Yes, in the sanctuary I have seen you, and witnessed your power and splendor. 3 Because experiencing your loyal love is better than life itself, my lips will praise you.

Psalm 63:1-6 (NET Bible)

  • 4 For this reason I will praise you while I live; in your name I will lift up my hands. 5 As if with choice meat you satisfy my soul. My mouth joyfully praises you, 6 whenever I remember you on my bed, and think about you during the nighttime hours.

Psalm 63:7-11 (NET Bible)

  • 7 For you are my deliverer; under your wings I rejoice. 8 My soul pursues you; your right hand upholds me. 9 Enemies seek to destroy my life, but they will descend into the depths of the earth. 10 Each one will be handed over to the sword; their corpses will be eaten by jackals. 11 But the king will rejoice in God; everyone who takes oaths in his name will boast, for the mouths of those who speak lies will be shut up.
