The Psalms
42

Thirsting for God
To the chief Musician, Maschil, for the sons of Korah.

1  As the hart panteth after the water brooks,
        
so panteth my soul after thee, O God.
2  My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God:
        
when shall I come and appear before God?
3  My tears have been my meat day and night,
        
while they continually say unto me, Where is thy God?
4  When I remember these things,
        
I pour out my soul in me:
for I had gone with the multitude,
I went with them to the house of God,
with the voice of joy and praise,
with a multitude that kept holyday.
5  Why art thou cast down, O my soul?
        
And why art thou disquieted in me?
Hope thou in God:
for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance.
6  O my God, my soul is cast down within me:
        
therefore will I remember thee from the land of Jordan,
and of the Her'monites, from the hill Mizar.
7  Deep 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 loving-kindness in the daytime,
        
and in the night his song shall be with me,
and my prayer unto the God of my life.
9  I will say unto God my rock,
        
Why hast thou forgotten me?
Why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?
10  As with a sword in my bones, mine enemies reproach me;
        
while they say daily unto me, Where is thy God?
11  Why 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.
