My soul failed for thy, salvation: I hoped for thy word.
My soul longed after, and also failed for the enclosures of Jehovah: my heart and my flesh will rejoice for the living God.
To the overseer instructing for the sons of Borah. As the stag will long for the channels of waters, thus will my soul long for thee, O God.
Behold, I desired for thy charges: make me alive in thy justice.
They fearing thee shall see me and be glad; for I hoped for thy word.
Thy compassion shall come to me and I shall live, for thy law is my delight
Thou my hiding and my shield: I hoped for thy word.
I adjured you, O daughters of Jerusalem, if ye shall find my beloved, what ye shall announce to him: I am pierced by love.
I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor boiling: I would thou shouldest be cold or boiling.
