"My Soul Follows Close Behind You; Your Right Hand Upholds Me"


Psalm 62 (63)

1 A Psalm of David when he was in the wilderness of Judah.
2 O GOD, You are my God;
Early will I seek You;
My soul thirsts for You;
My flesh longs for You
In a dry and thirsty land
Where there is no water.

3 So I have looked for You in the sanctuary,
To see Your power and Your glory.
4 Because Your mercy is better than life,
My lips shall praise You.

5 Thus I will bless You while I live;
I will lift up my hands in Your name.

6 My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness,
And my mouth shall praise You with joyful lips.

7 When I remember You on my bed,
I meditate on You in the early hours.

8 Because You have been my helper,
Therefore in the shelter of Your wings I will rejoice.

9 My soul follows close behind You;
Your right hand upholds me.

10 But those who vainly sought after my soul,
Shall go into the lower parts of the earth.

11 They shall be delivered up to the power of the sword;
They shall be a portion for foxes.

12 But the king shall rejoice in God;
Everyone who swears by Him shall be praised;
But the mouth of those who speak injustice shall be stopped.

Ψαλμὸς 62 (63)

1 Ψαλμὸς τῷ Δαυΐδ ἐν τῷ εἶναι αὐτὸν ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ τῆς ᾿Ιδουμαίας.

2 Ο ΘΕΟΣ ὁ Θεός μου, πρὸς σὲ ὀρθρίζω· ἐδίψησέ σε ἡ ψυχή μου, ποσαπλῶς σοι ἡ σάρξ μου ἐν γῇ ἐρήμῳ καὶ ἀβάτῳ καὶ ἀνύδρῳ.

3 οὕτως ἐν τῷ ἁγίῳ ὤφθην σοι τοῦ ἰδεῖν τὴν δύναμίν σου καὶ τὴν δόξαν σου.

4 ὅτι κρεῖσσον τὸ ἔλεός σου ὑπὲρ ζωάς· τὰ χείλη μου ἐπαινέσουσί σε.

5 οὕτως εὐλογήσω σε ἐν τῇ ζωῇ μου καὶ ἐν τῷ ὀνόματί σου ἀρῶ τὰς χεῖράς μου.

6 ὡς ἐκ στέατος καὶ πιότητος ἐμπλησθείη ἡ ψυχή μου, καὶ χείλη ἀγαλλιάσεως αἰνέσει τὸ στόμα μου.

7 εἰ ἐμνημόνευόν σου ἐπὶ τῆς στρωμνῆς μου, ἐν τοῖς ὄρθροις ἐμελέτων εἰς σέ·

8 ὅτι ἐγενήθης βοηθός μου, καὶ ἐν τῇ σκέπῃ τῶν πτερύγων σου ἀγαλλιάσομαι.

9 ἐκολλήθη ἡ ψυχή μου ὀπίσω σου, ἐμοῦ δὲ ἀντελάβετο ἡ δεξιά σου.

10 αὐτοὶ δὲ εἰς μάτην ἐζήτησαν τὴν ψυχήν μου, εἰσελεύσονται εἰς τὰ κατώτατα τῆς γῆς·

11 παραδοθήσονται εἰς χεῖρας ῥομφαίας, μερίδες ἀλωπέκων ἔσονται.

12 ὁ δὲ βασιλεὺς εὐφρανθήσεται ἐπὶ τῷ Θεῷ, ἐπαινεθήσεται πᾶς ὁ ὀμνύων ἐν αὐτῷ, ὅτι ἐνεφράγη στόμα λαλούντων ἄδικα.
