A Psalm of David, when he was in the Wilderness of Edom.1 O God, my God, I cry to You early; my soul has thirsted for You: how often has my flesh longed after You, in a barren and trackless and dry land! 2Thus have I appeared before You in the sanctuary, that I might see Your power and Your glory. 3For Your mercy is better than life: my lips shall praise You. 4Thus will I bless You during my life: I will lift up my hands in Your name. 5Let my soul be filled as with marrow and fatness; and my joyful lips shall praise Your name. 6For I have remembered You on my bed; in the early seasons I have meditated on You. 7For You have been my helper, and in the shelter of Your wings will I rejoice. 8My soul has kept very close behind You: Your right hand has upheld me. 9But they vainly sought after my soul; they shall go into the lowest parts of the earth. 10They shall be delivered up to the power of the sword; they shall be portions for jackals. 11But the king shall rejoice in God; everyone that swears by Him shall be praised; for the mouth of them that speak unjust things has been stopped.
