Praise God Who Satisfies

A Davidic psalm. When he was in the Wilderness of Judah.

1 God, You are my God; I eagerly seek You.a I thirst for You; my body faints for You in a land that is dry, desolate, and without water.
2 So I gaze on You in the sanctuary to see Your strength and Your glory.
3 My lips will glorify You because Your faithful love is better than life.
4 So I will praise You as long as I live; at Your name, I will lift up my hands.
5 You satisfy me as with rich food;b my mouth will praise You with joyful lips.
6 When, on my bed, I think of You,c I meditate on You during the night watches
7 because You are my help;d I will rejoice in the shadow of Your wings.
8 I follow close to You; Your right hand holds on to me.
9 But those who seek to destroy my life will go into the depths of the earth.
10 They will be given over to the power of the sword; they will become the jackals' prey.
11 But the king will rejoice in God; all who swear by Hime will boast, for the mouths of liars will be shut.
