To the chief Musician, Maskil, for the sons of Korah (Qorach).
1 As the deer panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after You, O God (Elohim).
2 My soul thirsteth for God (Elohim), for the living God (El chai); when shall I come and appear before God (Elohim)?
3 My tears have been my food day and night, while they continually say unto me, “Where is your God (Elohim)?”
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 (Elohim), with the voice of joy and praise, with a multitude that kept a feast.
5 Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted in me? Hope you in God (Elohim), for I shall yet praise Him for the help of His countenance.
6 O my God (Elohim), my soul is cast down within me; therefore will I remember You from the land of Jordan (Yarden), and of the Hermonites, from the hill Mizar.
7 Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of Your waterspouts; all Your waves and Your billows are gone over me.
8 Yet יהוה will command His lovingkindness in the daytime, and in the night His song shall be with me, and my prayer unto the God (El) of my life.
9 I will say unto God (Elohim) my Rock, “Why have You 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 your God (Elohim)?”
11 Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope you in God (Elohim), for I shall yet praise Him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God (Elohim).
