Bible: Psalm 42:1-9
42:1 For the music director; a well-written song 2 by the Korahites.
so I long 5 for you, O God!
42:2 I thirst 6 for God,
for the living God.
42:3 I cannot eat, I weep day and night; 9
all day long they say to me, 10 “Where is your God?”
42:4 I will remember and weep! 11
For I was once walking along with the great throng to the temple of God,
shouting and giving thanks along with the crowd as we celebrated the holy festival. 12
Why are you upset? 15
Wait for God!
For I will again give thanks
to my God for his saving intervention. 16
42:6 I am depressed, 17
so I will pray to you while I am trapped here in the region of the upper Jordan, 18
all your billows and waves overwhelm me. 23
42:8 By day the
and by night he gives me a song, 25
a prayer 26 to the living God.
“Why do you ignore 29 me?
Why must I walk around mourning 30
because my enemies oppress me?”
