When shall I come and ▼
▼ Some mss read see the face of God, h appear before God?
3 My i tears have been my food day and night,
While they j say to me all day long, “Where is your God?”
4 These things I remember and I k pour out my soul within me.
For I l used to go along with the throng and ▼
▼ Or move slowly with themlead them in procession to the house of God,
With the voice of n joy and thanksgiving, a multitude keeping festival.

And why have you become disturbed within me?
▼ Or Wait forHope in God, for I shall yet praise Him,
▼ Or saving acts ofhelp of my countenance and my God.
