Psalm 42:2-3 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)


As the deer longs for streams of water,
    so my soul longs for you, O God.
My soul thirsts for God, the living God.
    When can I enter and see the face of God?[a]


  1. 42:3 See the face of God: “face” designates a personal presence (Gn 33:10; Ex 10:28–29; 2 Sm 17:11). The expressions “see God/God’s face” occur elsewhere (Ps 11:7; 17:15; cf. Ex 24:10; 33:7–11; Jb 33:26) for the presence of God in the Temple.
