Salmos 63

1 [A Psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Judah.] O God, thou {art} my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is; {thirsty: Heb. weary} {where...: without water}

2 To see thy power and thy glory, so {as} I have seen thee in the sanctuary.

3 Because thy lovingkindness {is} better than life, my lips shall praise thee.

4 Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in thy name.

5 My soul shall be satisfied as {with} marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise {thee} with joyful lips: {marrow: Heb. fatness}

6 When I remember thee upon my bed, {and} meditate on thee in the {night} watches.

7 Because thou hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice.

8 My soul followeth hard after thee: thy right hand upholdeth me.

9 But those {that} seek my soul, to destroy {it}, shall go into the lower parts of the earth.

10 They shall fall by the sword: they shall be a portion for foxes. {They shall fall...: Heb. They shall make him run out like water by the hands of}

11 But the king shall rejoice in God; every one that sweareth by him shall glory: but the mouth of them that speak lies shall be stopped.
