My Soul Thirsts for You

A Psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Judah.

1 O God, you are my God; 1earnestly I seek you; 2my soul thirsts for you; my flesh faints for you, as in 3a dry and weary land where there is no water. 2 So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary, beholding 4your power and glory. 3 Because your 5steadfast love is better than life, my lips will praise you. 4 So I will bless you 6as long as I live; in your 7name I will 8lift up my hands. 5 My soul will be 9satisfied as with fat and rich food, and my mouth will praise you with joyful lips, 6 when I remember you 10upon my bed, and meditate on you in 11the watches of the night; 7 for you have been my help, and in 12the shadow of your wings I will sing for joy. 8 My soul 13clings to you; your right hand 14upholds me. 9 But those who seek to destroy my life 15shall go down into 16the depths of the earth; 10 they shall be given over to the power of the sword; they shall be a portion for jackals. 11 But 17the king shall rejoice in God; all who 18swear by him shall exult, 19for the mouths of 20liars will be stopped.
