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; 2: To see thy power and thy glory, so [as] I have seen thee in the sanctuary. 3: Because thy loving-kindness [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.
