March 16 Psalm 63


March 16

Psalm 63 (ESV)

My Soul Thirsts for You

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

63 O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you;
my soul thirsts for you;
my flesh faints for you,
as in a dry and weary land where there is no water.
 2 So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary,
beholding your power and glory.
 3 Because your steadfast love is better than life,
my lips will praise you.
 4 So I will bless you as long as I live;
in your name I will lift up my hands.

 5 My soul will be satisfied as with fat and rich food,
and my mouth will praise you with joyful lips,
 6 when I remember you upon my bed,
and meditate on you in the watches of the night;
 7 for you have been my help,
and in the shadow of your wings I will sing for joy.
 8 My soul clings to you;
your right hand upholds me.

 9 But those who seek to destroy my life
shall go down into the 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 the king shall rejoice in God;
all who swear by him shall exult,
for the mouths of liars will be stopped.
