Psalms 42
RV1895
42
BOOK II.
For the Chief Musician; Maschil of the sons of Korah.
1As the hart panteth after the water brooks,
So panteth my soul after thee, O God.
2My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God:
When shall I come and appear before God?
3My tears have been my meat day and night,
While they continually say unto me, Where is thy God?
4These things I remember, and pour out my soul within me,
How I went with the throng, and led them to the house of God,
With the voice of joy and praise, a multitude keeping holyday.
5Why art thou cast down, O my soul?
And why art thou disquieted within me?
Hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him
For the health of his countenance.
6O my God, my soul is cast down within me:
Therefore do I remember thee from the land of Jordan,
And the Hermons, from the hill Mizar.
7Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts:
All thy waves and thy billows are gone over me.
8 Yet the LORD will command his lovingkindness in the day-time,
And in the night his song shall be with me,
Even a prayer unto the God of my life.
9I will say unto God my rock, Why hast thou forgotten me?
Why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?
10As with a sword in my bones, mine adversaries reproach me;
While they continually say unto me, Where is thy God?
11Why art thou cast down, O my soul?
And why art thou disquieted within me?
Hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him,
Who is the health of my countenance, and my God.
