Psalms Chapters 42 - 43
Psalms Chapter 42
1: As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God.
2: My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?
3: My tears have been my meat day and night, while they continually say unto me, Where is thy God?
4: When I remember these things, I pour out my soul in me: for I had gone with the multitude, I went with them to the house of God, with the voice of joy and praise, with a multitude that kept holyday.
5: Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance.
6: O my God, my soul is cast down within me: therefore will I remember thee from the land of Jordan, and of the Hermonites, from the hill Mizar.
7: Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts: all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me.
8: Yet the LORD will command his lovingkindness in the daytime, and in the night his song shall be with me, and my prayer unto the God of my life.
9: I will say unto God my rock, Why hast thou forgotten me? why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?
10: As with a sword in my bones, mine enemies reproach me; while they say daily unto me, Where is thy God?
11: Why 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.
Psalms Chapter 43
1: Judge me, O God, and plead my cause against an ungodly nation: O deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man.
2: For thou art the God of my strength: why dost thou cast me off? why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?
3: O send out thy light and thy truth: let them lead me; let them bring me unto thy holy hill, and to thy tabernacles.
4: Then will I go unto the altar of God, unto God my exceeding joy: yea, upon the harp will I praise thee, O God my God.
5: Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God.
