1 (41-1) <Unto the end, understanding for the sons of Core.> (41-2) As the hart panteth after the fountains of water; so my soul panteth after thee, O God.
2 (41-3) My soul hath thirsted after the strong living God; when shall I come and appear before the face of God?
3 (41-4) My tears have been my bread day and night, whilst it is said to me daily: Where is thy God?
4 (41-5) These things I remembered, and poured out my soul in me: for I shall go over into the place of the wonderful tabernacle, even to the house of God: With the voice of joy and praise; the noise of one feasting.
5 (41-6) Why art thou sad, O my soul? and why dost thou trouble me? Hope in God, for I will still give praise to him: the salvation of my countenance,
6 (41-7) And my God. My soul is troubled within my self: therefore will I remember thee from the land of Jordan and Hermon, from the little hill.
7 (41-8) Deep calleth on deep, at the noise of thy flood-gates. All thy heights and thy billows have passed over me.
8 (41-9) In the daytime the Lord hath commanded his mercy; and a canticle to him in the night. With me is prayer to the God of my life.
9 (41-10) I will say to God: Thou art my support. Why hast thou forgotten me? and why go I mourning, whilst my enemy afflicteth me?
10 (41-11) Whilst my bones are broken, my enemies who trouble me have reproached me; Whilst they say to me day be day: Where is thy God?
11 (41-12) Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why dost thou disquiet me? Hope thou in God, for I will still give praise to him: the salvation of my countenance, and my God.
