1As a deer longs for the water streams, So my being longs for You, O Elohim.
2My being thirsts for Elohim, for the living Ěl. When shall I enter in to appear before Elohim?
3My tears have been my food day and night, While they say to me all day, “Where is your Elohim?”
4These I remember, and pour out my being within me. For I used to pass along with the throng; I went with them to the House of Elohim, With the voice of joy and praise, A multitude celebrating a festival!
5Why are you depressed, O my being? And why are you restless within me? Wait for Elohim: for I shall yet thank Him, For the deliverance of His face!
6O my Elohim, my being is depressed within me; Therefore I remember You from the land of the Yardĕn, And from the heights of Ḥermon, From Mount Mits‛ar.
7Deep calls to deep at the sound of Your waterfalls; All Your waves and breakers passed over me.
8By day יהוה commands His loving-commitment, And by night His song is with me; A prayer to the Ěl of my life.
9I say to Ěl my Rock, “Why have You forgotten me? Why do I go mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?”
10With murder in my bones, My enemies have reproached me, While they say to me all day long, “Where is your Elohim?”
11Why are you depressed, O my being? And why are you restless within me? Wait for Elohim: for I shall yet thank Him, the deliverance of my face, And my Elohim.
