Psalm 42Tree of Life Version (TLV)

My Soul Thirsts for God

Psalm 42

For the music director, a contemplative song of the sons of Korah.
As the deer pants for streams of water,
so my soul pants for You, O God.
My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.
When will I come and appear before God?
My tears have been my food day and night,
while they say to me all day: “Where is your God?”
These things I remember as I pour out my soul within me.
For I used to go along with the throng,
walking with them to the House of God, with a voice of joy and praise,
    a multitude keeping a festival.
Why are you downcast, O my soul?
Why are you murmuring within me?
Hope in God, for I will yet praise Him,
    for the salvation of His presence.

My God, my soul is downcast within me!
Therefore I remember You from the land of Jordan
and from the peaks of Hermon, from Mount Mitzar.
Deep calls to deep in the roar of Your waterfalls.
All Your waves and breakers have swept over me.
By day Adonai commands His love,
and at night His song is with me—
a prayer to the God of my life.
10 I will say to God my Rock:
“Why have You forgotten me?
Why do I go about mourning, under the oppression of the enemy?”
11 As with a crushing in my bones,
my adversaries taunt me,
by saying to me all day, “Where is your God?”
12 Why are you downcast, O my soul?
Why are you murmuring within me?
Hope in God, for I will yet praise Him,
the salvation of my countenance and my God.
