Psalm 42:9-11 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

By day may the Lord send his mercy,
    and by night may his righteousness be with me!
    I will pray[a] to the God of my life,
10 I will say to God, my rock:
    “Why do you forget me?
Why must I go about mourning
    with the enemy oppressing me?”
11 It shatters my bones, when my adversaries reproach me,
    when they say to me every day: “Where is your God?”


  1. 42:9–10 I will pray…I will say: in the midst of his depression the psalmist turns to prayer. Despite his situation he trusts the Lord to deliver him from his sorrow so that he may enter the Temple precincts and praise him once again (Ps 43:3–4, 5b).
