¶ A Psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Iuda.O God, thou art my God, early will I seek thee, my soul thursteth for thee, my flesh longeth after thee in a barren and dry land, where no water is. Thus do I look for thee in thy Sanctuary, that I might behold thy power and glory.
¶ For thy loving kindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee. As long as I live will I magnify thee and lift up my hands in thy name. My soul is satisfied even as it were with marry and fatness, when my mouth praiseth thee with joyful lips. In my bed will I remember thee, and when I wake my talking shall be of thee.
¶ For thou hast been my helper, and under the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice. My soul hangeth upon thee, thy right hand upholdeth me. They seek after my soul, but in vain, for they shall go under the earth. They shall fall into the sword, and be a portion for foxes. But the king shall rejoice in God: all they that swear by him, shall be commended, for the mouth of liars shall be stopped.
