Psalm 63 (CSB)
A psalm of David. When he was in the Wilderness of Judah.
1 God, you are my God; I eagerly seek you. I thirst for you; my body faints for you in a land that is dry, desolate, and without water.
2 So I gaze on you in the sanctuary to see your strength and your glory.
3 My lips will glorify you because your faithful love is better than life.
4 So I will bless you as long as I live; at your name, I will lift up my hands.
5 You satisfy me as with rich food; my mouth will praise you with joyful lips.
6 When I think of you as I lie on my bed, I meditate on you during the night watches
7 because you are my helper; I will rejoice in the shadow of your wings.
8 I follow close to you; your right hand holds on to me.
9 But those who intend to destroy my life will go into the depths of the earth.
10 They will be given over to the power of the sword; they will become a meal for jackals.
11 But the king will rejoice in God; all who swear by him will boast, for the mouths of liars will be shut.
My enemies feebly
- failed to destroy me
- They attacked me from all sides
- They have punctured my heart
- with all of their fiery arrows
- surely I was dead
- my soul was gone.
But I belong to you
- you are my everlasting God
- who have sent His Son
- to live and die for me
- so that I will never perish
- but have everlasting life.
- is what my life runs on.
- Be my everything
- and be with me forever.
