A Psalm of David, *when he was in the wilderness of Judah.
1 O God, thou art my God; aearly will I seek thee:
bMy soul thirsteth for thee,
bMy flesh longeth for thee
In a cdry and †thirsty land, †where no water is;
2 To see ccthy power and thy glory,
So as I have seen thee in the sanctuary.
3 Because dthy lovingkindness is ebetter than life,
My lips shall praise thee.
4 Thus will I bless thee fwhile I live:
I gwill lift up my hands in thy name.
5 hMy soul shall be satisfied as with †marrow and fatness;
And my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips:
6 When iI remember thee upon my bed,
And meditate on thee in jthe night watches.
7 Because thou hast been kmy help,
Therefore lin the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice.
8 My soul followeth hard after thee:
Thy right hand mupholdeth me.
9 nBut those that seek my soul, to destroy it,
Shall go into othe lower parts of the earth.
10 †They shall fall by the sword:
They shall be a portion for foxes.
11 But pthe king shall rejoice in God;
Every one that qsweareth by him shall glory:
But rthe mouth of them that speak lies shall be stopped.
