2 O God, my God: to you, I keep vigil until first light. For you, my soul has thirsted, to you my body, in so many ways.
3 By a deserted land, both inaccessible and waterless, so I have appeared in the sanctuary before you, in order to behold your virtue and your glory.
4 For your mercy is better than life itself. It is you my lips will praise.
5 So will I bless you in my life, and I will lift up my hands in your name.
6 Let my soul be filled, as if with marrow and fatness; and my mouth will give praise with exultant lips.
7 When I have remembered you on my bed in the morning, I will meditate on you.
8 For you have been my helper. And I will exult under the cover of your wings.
12 Therefore, desire my words, love them, and you will have instruction.
13 Wisdom is pure and never fades away, and is easily seen by those who love her and found by those who seek her.
14 She anticipates those who desire her, so that she first reveals herself to them.
15 Whoever awakens early to seek her, will not labor, for he will find her sitting at his door.
16 Therefore, by thinking about her, understanding is perfected, and whoever remains watchful for her, will quickly be secure.
