*To the chief Musician, ||Maschil, *for †the sons of Korah.
1 As the hart †panteth after athe water brooks,
So panteth my soul after thee, O God.
2 bMy soul thirsteth for God, for cthe living God:
When shall I come and ccappear before God?
3 dMy tears have been my meat day and night,
eWhile they continually say unto me, Where is thy God?
4 When I remember these things, fI pour out my soul in me:
For I had gone with the multitude, I gwent with them to the house of God,
With the voice of joy and praise, with a multitude that kept holyday.
5 hWhy art thou †cast down, O my soul? and hwhy art thou idisquieted in me?
jHope thou in God: for I shall yet ||kpraise him
||For the help of his countenance.
6 O my God, my soul is cast down within me: therefore will I remember thee
lFrom the land of Jordan, and of the mHermonites, from ||the hill Mizar.
7 nDeep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy owaterspouts:
pAll thy qwaves and thy billows are gone over me.
8 Yet the Lord will rcommand his lovingkindness in the daytime,
And sin the night his song shall be with me,
And my prayer unto the God of my life.
9 I will say unto God tmy rock, Why hast thou forgotten me?
uWhy go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?
10 As with a ||sword in my bones, mine enemies reproach me;
eWhile they say daily unto me, Where is thy God?
11 xWhy art 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.
