Orthodox Jewish Bible (OJB)
(Mizmor Dovid. When he was in the midbar Yehudah). O 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 To see Thy oz (might, power) and Thy kavod, as I have beheld Thee in the Kodesh (holy place, sanctuary). 3 Because Thy chesed is better than chayyim, my lips shall praise Thee. 4 Thus will I bless Thee while I live; I will lift up my hands b’Shimcha (in Thy Name.) 5 My nefesh shall be satisfied as with chelev (fat) and deshen (abundance); and my mouth shall praise Thee with lips of joyful singing; 6 When I remember Thee upon my bed, and meditate on Thee in the ashmurot (night watches). 7 Because Thou hast been my help, therefore in the tzel (shadow) of Thy wings will I sing with joy. 8 My nefesh followeth hard after Thee; Thy Yamin (Right Hand) upholdeth me. 9 But those that seek my nefesh, to destroy it, shall go into the abysses of ha’aretz. 10 They deliver him into the power of the cherev; they shall be a portion for jackals. 11 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.
