O Elohim, You are my El; I earnestly seek You; My being has thirsted for You; My flesh has longed for You In a dry and thirsty land without water.
Therefore I have had a vision of You In the set-apart place, To see Your power and Your esteem.
Because Your kindness is better than life, My lips do praise You.
Therefore I bless You while I live; In Your Name I lift up my hands.
My being is satisfied as with marrow and fat, And my mouth praises You with singing lips.
When I remember You on my bed, I meditate on You in the night watches.
For You have been my help, And in the shadow of Your wings I sing.
My being has closely followed You; Your right hand did uphold me.
But those who seek to destroy my life, Go into the lower parts of the earth.
They are handed over To the power of the sword; They become a portion for jackals.
But let the sovereign rejoice in Elohim; Let everyone who swears by Him exult; For the mouth of those speaking lies are stopped.
