2So I have looked upon You in the sanctuary to see Your power and Your glory.
3Because Your loving-kindness is better than life, my lips shall praise You.
4So will I bless You while I live; I will lift up my hands in Your name.
5My whole being shall be satisfied... and my mouth shall praise You with joyful lips
6When I remember You upon my bed and meditate on You in the night watches.
7For You have been my help, and in the shadow of Your wings will I rejoice.
8My whole being follows hard after You and clings closely to You; Your right hand upholds me.
9But those who seek and demand my life to ruin and destroy it shall [themselves be destroyed and] go into the lower parts of the earth [into the underworld of the dead].
10They shall be given over to the power of the sword; they shall be a prey for foxes and jackals.
11But the king shall rejoice in God; everyone who swears by Him [that is, who binds himself by God's authority, acknowledging His supremacy, and devoting himself to His glory and service alone; every such one] shall glory, for the mouths of those who speak lies shall be stopped.
