Psalm 42 ©

1 The Psalmist longeth after the service of God in the temple: 5 he encourageth his dejected soul to trust in God.


To the chief Musician, 1Maschil, for the sons of Korah.


AS the *hart 2panteth after the water brooks, so apanteth my soul after thee, O God.


My soul thirsteth for God, for the bliving God: when shall I come and appear before God?


My ctears have been my *meat day and night, while they continually say unto me, Where is thy God?


When dI remember these things, eI pour out my soul in me: for I had gone with the multitude, I fwent with them to the ghouse of God, with the voice of joy and praise, with a multitude that kept holyday.

f Pss. 120-134, titles.

Why hart thou 3cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet 4praise him for 5the help of his countenance.


O imy God, my soul is cast down within me: jtherefore will I remember thee from kthe land of Jordan, and of the Hermonites, from 6the hill Mizar.


Deep lcalleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts: all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me.


Yet the LORD mwill command his lovingkindness in the daytime, and nin the night his song shall be with me, and my prayer unto the God of my life.


I will say unto God omy rock, pWhy hast thou forgotten me? why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?


As qwith a 7sword in my bones, mine enemies reproach me; while they say daily unto me, Where is thy God?


Why rart 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.
