David’s thirst for God
1 O Elohim, You are my Ěl; I earnestly seek You; My being has thirsted for You; My flesh has longed for You In a dry and thirsty land without water.
2 Therefore I have had a vision of You In the set-apart place, To see Your power and Your esteem.
3 Because Your loving-commitment is better than life, My lips do praise You.
His manner of blessing God
4 Therefore I bless You while I live; In Your Name I lift up my hands.
5 My being is satisfied as with marrow and fat, And my mouth praises You with singing lips.
6 When I remember You on my bed, I meditate on You in the night watches.
7 For You have been my help, And in the shadow of Your wings I sing.
8 My being has closely followed You; Your right hand did uphold me.
His confidence of his enemies’ destruction, and his own safety
9 But those who seek to destroy my life, Go into the lower parts of the earth.
10 They are handed over To the power of the sword; They become a portion for jackals.
11 But let the sovereign rejoice in Elohim; Let everyone who swears by Him exult; For the mouth of those speaking lies is stopped.
