1 Chanting to David in his being in the desert of Judah. O God thou art my God; I will seek thee: my soul thirsted for thee, my flesh longed for thee in a land of dryness, and thirsty without water. 2 Thus in the holy place I saw thee, to see thy strength and thy glory. 3 For thy mercy was good more than life; my lips shall praise thee. 4 So I will bless thee in my life: in thy name will I lift up my hands. 5 As milk and fatness my soul shall be satisfied; and with rejoicing lips shall my mouth praise.
6 When I remembered thee upon my bed in the watches, I will meditate upon thee. 7 For thou wert a help to me, and in the shadow of thy wings I will rejoice. 8 My soul adhered after thee: thy right hand held fast upon me.
9 They will seek my soul for destruction, they shall go into the lower parts of the earth. 10 They shall deliver to the hands of the sword; they shall be a portion of foxes. 11 And the king shall rejoice in God; all swearing in him shall glory: for the mouth of those speaking falsehood shall be stopped.
