50. Psalm 63- The thirsty soul

O YHWH, You Are my God, I seek You, my soul thirsts for You, my flesh faints for You, as in a dry and weary land where no water flows. So I have looked upon You in Your sanctuary, the heavens beholding Your Power and Glory. Because Your Steadfast Love is better than this short life, my lips will praise You. I will bless You as long as I live, I will lift up my hands and call on Your Name. My soul is feasted as with bread and butter and my mouth praises You with joyful lips, when I think of You while at rest and meditate on You in the watches of the night, for You Have Been my Help and in the Shadow Of Your Wings my soul sings for joy. Yea my soul clings to You, Your Right Hand Upholds me. But those who seek to destroy my life shall be sent down into the depths of the Earth, Hell they shall be given over to the power of the sword, they shall be as if prey for jackals. But the king shall rejoice in YHWH, all who swear by Him shall have glory, for the mouths of liars will be stopped.
