1: A Psalm of David, in his being in the wilderness of Judah. O God, Thou [art] my God, earnestly do I seek Thee, Thirsted for Thee hath my soul, Longed for Thee hath my flesh, In a land dry and weary, without waters. 2: So in the sanctuary I have seen Thee, To behold Thy strength and Thine honour. 3: Because better [is] Thy kindness than life, My lips do praise Thee. 4: So I bless Thee in my life, in Thy name I lift up my hands. 5: As [with] milk and fatness is my soul satisfied, And [with] singing lips doth my mouth praise. 6: If I have remembered Thee on my couch, In the watches -- I meditate on Thee. 7: For Thou hast been a help to me, And in the shadow of Thy wings I sing. 8: Cleaved hath my soul after Thee, On me hath Thy right hand taken hold. 9: And they who for desolation seek my soul, Go in to the lower parts of the earth. 10: They cause him to run on the edge of the sword, A portion for foxes they are. 11: And the king doth rejoice in God, Boast himself doth every one swearing by Him, But stopped is the mouth of those speaking lies!
