A Psalm of David aWhen He Was in the Wilderness of Judah.
Early will I seek You;
bMy soul thirsts for You;
My flesh longs for You
In a dry and thirsty land
Where there is no water.
To see cYour power and Your glory.
3 dBecause Your lovingkindness is better than life,
My lips shall praise You.
I will elift up my hands in Your name.
And my mouth shall praise You with joyful lips.
6 When fI remember You on my bed,
I meditate on You in the night watches.
Therefore in the shadow of Your wings I will rejoice.
Your right hand upholds me.
Shall go into the lower parts of the earth.
10 They shall 3fall by the sword;
They shall be 4a portion for jackals.
gEveryone who swears by Him shall glory;
But the mouth of those who speak lies shall be stopped.
