A melody of David, when he was in the wilderness of Judah.+
63 O God, you are my God, I keep looking for you.+
I do thirst* for you.+
I am* faint with longing for you
In a dry and parched land, where there is no water.+
2 So I have looked upon you in the holy place;
I have seen your strength and your glory.+
3 Because your loyal love is better than life,+
My own lips will glorify you.+
4 Thus I will praise you all my life;
In your name I will lift up my hands.
5 I am* satisfied with the best and choicest portion,*
So my mouth will praise you with joy on my lips.+
6 I remember you while upon my bed;
I meditate on you during the watches of the night.+
7 For you are my helper,+
And I shout joyfully in the shadow of your wings.+
8 I cling* to you;
Your right hand keeps fast hold on me.+
9 But those who seek to destroy my life*
Will descend into the depths of the earth.
10 They will be handed over to the power of the sword;
They will become food for jackals.*
11 But the king will rejoice in God.
Every person swearing by Him will exult,*
For the mouth of those speaking lies will be silenced.
