Psalms 42

PSALM 42

The Disturbed Soul Thirsts for God

To the director; for contemplation to the sons of Korah.

In which manner [3longs 1the 2stag] after the springs of the waters, so [2longs 1my soul] after you, O God. [2thirsted 1My soul] for [4God 1the 2mighty 3living]. When shall I come and appear in front of God? [2became 1My tears] bread for me day and night, while saying to me each day, Where is your God? These things I remembered, and [2poured out 3upon 4me 1my soul], for I shall go through to the place [2tent 1of the wonderful], unto the house of God, with a voice of exultation, and acknowledgment of the sound of the solemnizing a holiday. Why are you dejected, O my soul? and why do you disturb me? Hope upon God! for I shall acknowledge to him the deliverance of my person. O my God, to myself my soul was disturbed; on account of this I will remember you from the land of Jordan, and Hermons, from [2mountain 1the small]. The deep [2the deep 1calls] at the sound of your torrents; all your crests and your waves [2over 3me 1went]. By day the  lord gives charge to his mercy, and at night his ode shall be with me -- a prayer to the God of my life. I will say to God, [2shielder 1You are my]; why did you forget me? Why [2looking downcast 1do I go] at the squeezing by the enemy? 10 In the breaking in pieces of my bones, [4berated 5me 1the ones 2afflicting 3me]; while in their saying to me accordingly each day, Where is your God? 11 Why are you dejected, O my soul? and why do you disturb me? Hope upon God! for I shall acknowledge to him the deliverance of my person, and my God.
