God Satisfies the Thirsting Soul
A Psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Judah. 2.1--0.1 ; 0.15 ; 3.28

1  O God, thou art my God;
        
early will I seek thee:
my soul thirsteth for thee,
my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land,
where no water is;
2  to see thy power and thy glory,
        
so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary.
3  Because thy loving-kindness is better than life,
        
my lips shall praise thee.
4  Thus will I bless thee while I live:
        
I will lift up my hands in thy name.
5  My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness;
        
and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips:
6  when I remember thee upon my bed,
        
and meditate on thee in the night watches.
7  Because thou hast been my help,
        
therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice.
8  My soul followeth hard after thee:
        
thy right hand upholdeth me.
9  But those that seek my soul, to destroy it,
        
shall go into the lower parts of the earth.
10  They shall fall by the sword:
        
they shall be a portion for foxes.
11  But the king shall rejoice in God;
        
every one that sweareth by him shall glory:
but the mouth of them that speak lies shall be stopped.
