11As a deer pants for flowing streams, so pants my soul for you, O God.
22My soul thirsts for God, for 3the living God. When shall I come and 4appear before God?a35My tears have been my food day and night, 6while they say to me all the day long, "Where is your God?"
These things I remember, as I 7pour out my soul: 8how I would go 9with the throng and lead them in procession to the house of God with glad shouts and songs of praise, 10a multitude keeping festival.
511Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you 12in turmoil within me? 13Hope in God; for I shall again praise him, my salvationb6
and my God.My soul is cast down within me; therefore I 14remember you 15from the land of Jordan and of 16Hermon, from Mount Mizar.
Deep calls to deep at the roar of your waterfalls; 17all your breakers and your 18waves have gone over me.
By day the LORD19commands his steadfast love, and at 20night his song is with me, a prayer to the God of my life.
I say to God, 21my rock: "Why have you forgotten me? 22Why do I go mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?"
As with a deadly wound in my bones, my adversaries taunt me, 23while they say to me all the day long, "Where is your God?"
1124Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you in turmoil within me? Hope in God; for I shall again praise him, my salvation and my God.
