Deus Deus meus, ad te. The prophet aspireth after God.
1 A psalm of David when he was in the desert of Edom.
Psalmus David, cum esset in deserto Idumaeae.
2 O God, my God, to thee do I watch at break of day. For thee my soul hath thirsted; for thee my flesh, O how many ways!
Deus, Deus meus, ad te de luce vigilo. Sitivit in te anima mea; quam multipliciter tibi caro mea!
3 In a desert land, and where there is no way, and no water: so in the sanctuary have I come before thee, to see thy power and thy glory.
In terra deserta, et invia, et inaquosa, sic in sancto apparui tibi, ut viderem virtutem tuam et gloriam tuam.
4 For thy mercy is better than lives: thee my lips shall praise.
Quoniam melior est misericordia tua super vitas, labia mea laudabunt te.
5 Thus will I bless thee all my life long: and in thy name I will lift up my hands.
Sic benedicam te in vita mea; et in nomine tuo levabo manus meas.
6 Let my soul be filled as with marrow and fatness: and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips.
Sicut adipe et pinguedine repleatur anima mea, et labiis exsultationis laudabit os meum.
7 If I have remembered thee upon my bed, I will meditate on thee in the morning:
Si memor fui tui super stratum meum, in matutinis meditabor in te.
8 Because thou hast been my helper. And I will rejoice under the covert of thy wings:
Quia fuisti adjutor meus, et in velamento alarum tuarum exsultabo.
9 My soul hath stuck close to thee: thy right hand hath received me.
Adhaesit anima mea post te; me suscepit dextera tua.
10 But they have sought my soul in vain, they shall go into the lower parts of the earth:
Ipsi vero in vanum quaesierunt animam meam : introibunt in inferiora terrae;
11 They shall be delivered into the hands of the sword, they shall be the portions of foxes.
tradentur in manus gladii; partes vulpium erunt.
12 But the king shall rejoice in God, all they shall be praised that swear by him: because the mouth is stopped of them that speak wicked things.
Rex vero laetabitur in Deo; laudabuntur omnes qui jurant in eo, quia obstructum est os loquentium iniqua.
