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