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 athy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary. 3 bBecause 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 csatisfied as with dmarrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips: 6 When I remember thee eupon my bed, and meditate on thee in the night watches. 7 Because thou hast been fmy help, therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice. 8 gMy 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; hevery one that sweareth by him shall glory: but the mouth of them that speak lies shall be stopped.
