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 For thy louing kindnesse is better then life: therefore my lippes shall prayse thee.
4 Thus will I magnifie thee all my life, and lift vp mine 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 on my bedde, and when I thinke vpon thee in the night watches.
7 Because thou hast bene mine helper, therefore vnder the shadow of thy wings wil I reioyce.
8 My soul followeth hard after thee: thy right hand upholdeth me.
9 Therefore they that seeke my soule to destroy it, they shall goe into the lowest partes 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.
