63
1O Elohim, Thou art Eli; early will I seek Thee; my nefesh thirsteth for Thee; my basar longeth for Thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no mayim is; 2(3) To see Thy oz (might, power) and Thy kavod, as I have beheld Thee in the Kodesh (holy place, sanctuary). 3(4) Because Thy chesed is better than chayyim, my lips shall praise Thee. 4(5) Thus will I bless Thee while I live; I will lift up my hands b'Shimcha (in Thy Name.) 5(6) My nefesh shall be satisfied as with chelev (fat) and deshen (abundance); and my mouth shall praise Thee with lips of joyful singing; 6(7) When I remember Thee upon my bed, and meditate on Thee in the ashmurot (night watches). 7(8) Because Thou hast been my help, therefore in the tzel (shadow) of Thy wings will I sing with joy. 8(9) My nefesh followeth hard after Thee; Thy Yamin (Right Hand) upholdeth me. 9(10) But those that seek my nefesh, to destroy it, shall go into the abysses of ha'aretz. 10(11) They deliver him into the power of the cherev; they shall be a portion for jackals. 11(12) But HaMelech shall rejoice in Elohim; every one that sweareth by Him shall glory; but the mouth of them that speak sheker shall be stopped.
