I have called upon thee, for thou wilt hear me, O God: incline thine ear unto me, and hear my speech.

Psalms Chapters 63-65

Thanks and praise to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

Psalms Chapter 63
1: 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;
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:
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.
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.

Psalms Chapter 64
1: Hear my voice, O God, in my prayer: preserve my life from fear of the enemy.
2: Hide me from the secret counsel of the wicked; from the insurrection of the workers of iniquity:
3: Who whet their tongue like a sword, and bend their bows to shoot their arrows, even bitter words:
4: That they may shoot in secret at the perfect: suddenly do they shoot at him, and fear not.
5: They encourage themselves in an evil matter: they commune of laying snares privily; they say, Who shall see them?
6: They search out iniquities; they accomplish a diligent search: both the inward thought of every one of them, and the heart, is deep.
7: But God shall shoot at them with an arrow; suddenly shall they be wounded.
8: So they shall make their own tongue to fall upon themselves: all that see them shall flee away.
9: And all men shall fear, and shall declare the work of God; for they shall wisely consider of his doing.
10: The righteous shall be glad in the LORD, and shall trust in him; and all the upright in heart shall glory.

Psalms Chapter 65
1: Praise waiteth for thee, O God, in Sion: and unto thee shall the vow be performed.
2: O thou that hearest prayer, unto thee shall all flesh come.
3: Iniquities prevail against me: as for our transgressions, thou shalt purge them away.
4: Blessed is the man whom thou choosest, and causest to approach unto thee, that he may dwell in thy courts: we shall be satisfied with the goodness of thy house, even of thy holy temple.
5: By terrible things in righteousness wilt thou answer us, O God of our salvation; who art the confidence of all the ends of the earth, and of them that are afar off upon the sea:
6: Which by his strength setteth fast the mountains; being girded with power:
7: Which stilleth the noise of the seas, the noise of their waves, and the tumult of the people.
8: They also that dwell in the uttermost parts are afraid at thy tokens: thou makest the outgoings of the morning and evening to rejoice.
9: Thou visitest the earth, and waterest it: thou greatly enrichest it with the river of God, which is full of water: thou preparest them corn, when thou hast so provided for it.
10: Thou waterest the ridges thereof abundantly: thou settlest the furrows thereof: thou makest it soft with showers: thou blessest the springing thereof.
11: Thou crownest the year with thy goodness; and thy paths drop fatness.
12: They drop upon the pastures of the wilderness: and the little hills rejoice on every side.
13: The pastures are clothed with flocks; the valleys also are covered over with corn; they shout for joy, they also sing.
