42:1 To the chief Musician, Maschil, for the sons of Korah. As
the hart panteth after the water brooks, so my soul panteth
after thee, O God.
42:2 My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I
come and appear before God?
42:3 My tears have been my food day and night, while they
continually say to me, Where [is] thy God?
42:4 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 holy-day.
42:5 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.
42:6 O my God, my soul is cast down within me: therefore will I
remember thee from the land of Jordan, and of the Hermonites,
from the hill Mizar.
42:7 Deep calleth to deep at the noise of thy water-spouts: all
thy waves and thy billows are gone over me.
42:8 [Yet] the LORD will command his loving-kindness in the
day-time, and in the night his song [shall be] with me, [and]
my prayer to the God of my life.
42:9 I will say to God my rock, Why hast thou forgotten me? why
go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?
42:10 [As] with a sword in my bones, my enemies reproach me;
while they say daily to me, Where [is] thy God?
42:11 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.
