The second book of Psalms, song 63, Vulgate and King James Version

Psalm 63


   1 PSALMUS. David, cum in deserto Iudae commoraretur.
   2 Deus, Deus meus es tu, ad te de luce vigilo. Sitivit in te anima mea, te desideravit caro mea. In terra deserta et arida et inaquosa,
   3 sic in sancto apparui tibi, ut viderem virtutem tuam et gloriam tuam.
   4 Quoniam melior est misericordia tua super vitas, labia mea laudabunt te.
   5 Sic benedicam te in vita mea et in nomine tuo levabo manus meas.
   6 Sicut adipe et pinguedine repleatur anima mea, et labiis exsultationis laudabit os meum.
   7 Cum memor ero tui super stratum meum, in matutinis meditabor de te,
   8 quia fuisti adiutor meus, et in velamento alarum tuarum exsultabo.
   9 Adhaesit anima mea post te, me suscepit dextera tua.
   10 Ipsi vero in ruinam quaesierunt animam meam, introibunt in inferiora terrae,
   11 tradentur in potestatem gladii, partes vulpium erunt.
   12 Rex vero laetabitur in Deo; gloriabuntur omnes, qui iurant in eo, quia obstructum est os loquentium iniqua.

King James Version

   A Psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Judah.
   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.
