Thirsting for God

1(62:1) A Psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Idumea. O God, my God, I cry to thee early; my soul has thirsted for thee: how often has my flesh longed after thee, in a barren and trackless and dry land!

2(62:2) Thus have I appeared before thee in the sanctuary, that I might see thy power and thy glory.

3(62:3) For thy mercy is better than life: my lips shall praise thee.

4(62:4) Thus will I bless thee during my life: I will lift up my hands in thy name.

5(62:5) Let my soul be filled as with marrow and fatness; and my joyful lips shall praise thy name.

6(62:6) Forasmuch as I have remembered thee on my bed: in the early seasons I have meditated on thee.

7(62:7) For thou hast been my helper, and in the shelter of thy wings will I rejoice.

8(62:8) My soul has kept very close behind thee: thy right hand has upheld me.

9(62:9) But they vainly sought after my soul; they shall go into the lowest parts o the earth.

10(62:10) They shall be delivered up to the power of the sword; they shall be portions for foxes.

11(62:11) But the king shall rejoice in God; every one that swears by him shall be praised; for the mouth of them that speak unjust things has been stopped.
