Psalm 63 (WEBP)

[1] God, you are my God. I will earnestly seek you. My soul thirsts for you. My flesh longs for you, in a dry and weary land, where there is no water.
[2] So I have seen you in the sanctuary, watching your power and your glory.
[3] Because your loving kindness is better than life, my lips shall praise you.
[4] So I will bless you while I live. I will lift up my hands in your name.
[5] My soul shall be satisfied as with the richest food. My mouth shall praise you with joyful lips,
[6] when I remember you on my bed, and think about you in the night watches.
[7] For you have been my help. I will rejoice in the shadow of your wings.
[8] My soul stays close to you. Your right hand holds me up.
[9] But those who seek my soul to destroy it shall go into the lower parts of the earth.
[10] They shall be given over to the power of the sword. They shall be jackal food.
[11] But the king shall rejoice in God. Everyone who swears by him will praise him, for the mouth of those who speak lies shall be silenced.

Psalm 63 (KJVS)

[1] «A Psalm H4210 of David H1732, when he was in the wilderness H4057 of Judah H3063.» O God H430, thou [art] my God H410; early will I seek H7836 (8762) thee: my soul H5315 thirsteth H6770 (8804) for thee, my flesh H1320 longeth H3642 (8804) for thee in a dry H6723 and thirsty H5889 land H776, where no H1097 water H4325 is;
[2] To see H7200 (8800) thy power H5797 and thy glory H3519, so [as] I have seen H2372 (8804) thee in the sanctuary H6944.
[3] Because thy lovingkindness H2617 [is] better H2896 than life H2416, my lips H8193 shall praise H7623 (8762) thee.
[4] Thus will I bless H1288 (8762) thee while I live H2416: I will lift up H5375 (8799) my hands H3709 in thy name H8034.
[5] My soul H5315 shall be satisfied H7646 (8799) as [with] marrow H2459 and fatness H1880; and my mouth H6310 shall praise H1984 (8762) [thee] with joyful H7445 lips H8193:
[6] When I remember H2142 (8804) thee upon my bed H3326, [and] meditate H1897 (8799) on thee in the [night] watches H821.
[7] Because thou hast been my help H5833, therefore in the shadow H6738 of thy wings H3671 will I rejoice H7442 (8762).
[8] My soul H5315 followeth hard H1692 (8804) after H310 thee: thy right hand H3225 upholdeth H8551 (8804) me.
[9] But those [that] seek H1245 (8762) my soul H5315, to destroy H7722 [it], shall go H935 (8799) into the lower parts H8482 of the earth H776.
[10] They shall fall H5064 (8686) by the sword H3027 H2719: they shall be a portion H4521 for foxes H7776.
[11] But the king H4428 shall rejoice H8055 (8799) in God H430; every one that sweareth H7650 (8737) by him shall glory H1984 (8691): but the mouth H6310 of them that speak H1696 (8802) lies H8267 shall be stopped H5534 (8735).

Young’s Literal Translation

Psalm 63 (YLT)

[1] O God, Thou art my God, earnestly do I seek Thee, Thirsted for Thee hath my soul, Longed for Thee hath my flesh, In a land dry and weary, without waters.
[2] So in the sanctuary I have seen Thee, To behold Thy strength and Thine honour.
[3] Because better is Thy kindness than life, My lips do praise Thee.
[4] So I bless Thee in my life, in Thy name I lift up my hands.
[5] As with milk and fatness is my soul satisfied, And with singing lips doth my mouth praise.
[6] If I have remembered Thee on my couch, In the watches-I meditate on Thee.
[7] For Thou hast been a help to me, And in the shadow of Thy wings I sing.
[8] Cleaved hath my soul after Thee, On me hath Thy right hand taken hold.
[9] And they who for desolation seek my soul, Go in to the lower parts of the earth.
[10] They cause him to run on the edge of the sword, A portion for foxes they are.
[11] And the king doth rejoice in God, Boast himself doth every one swearing by Him, But stopped is the mouth of those speaking lies!
