42 Revised Standard Version BHS Hebrew Text Reference
[To the choirmaster. A Maskil of the Sons of Korah.] לַמְנַצֵּחַ מַשְׂכִּיל לִבְנֵי־קֹרַח׃ BOOK 2. (Ps.42-72) Lament of an Exile. Psalm 42(v41)
As a hart longs for flowing streams,
so longs my soul for thee, O God.
כְּאַיָּל תַּעֲרֹג עַל־אֲפִיקֵי־מָיִם
כֵּן נַפְשִׁי תַעֲרֹג אֵלֶיךָ אֱלֹהִים׃
 
My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.
When shall I come and behold the face of God?
צָמְאָה נַפְשִׁי לֵאלֹהִים לְאֵל חָי
מָתַי אָבֹוא וְאֵרָאֶה פְּנֵי אֱלֹהִים׃
 
My tears have been my food day and night,
while men say to me continually, "Where is your God?"
הָיְתָה־לִּי דִמְעָתִי לֶחֶם יֹוםָם וָלָיְלָה
בֶּאֱמֹר אֵלַי כָּל־הַיֹּום אַיֵּה אֱלֹהֶיךָ׃
 
These things I remember, as I pour out my soul:
how I went with the throng, and led them in procession to the house of God,
with glad shouts and songs of thanksgiving, a multitude keeping festival.
אֵלֶּה אֶזְכְּרָה וְאֶשְׁפְּכָה עָלַי נַפְשִׁי
כִּי אֶעֱבֹר בַּסָּךְ אֶדַּדֵּם עַד־בֵּית אֱלֹהִים
בְּקֹול־רִנָּה וְתֹודָה הָמֹון חֹוגֵג׃
 
Why are you cast down, O my soul,
and why are you disquieted within me?
Hope in God;
for I shall again praise him, my help and my God.
מַה־תִּשְׁתֹּוחֲחִי נַפְשִׁי וַתֶּהֱמִי עָלָי
הֹוחִילִי לֵאלֹהִים כִּי־עֹוד אֹודֶנּוּ יְשׁוּעֹות פָּנָיו׃
 
My soul is cast down within me,
therefore I remember thee from the land of Jordan and of Hermon, from Mount Mizar.
אֱלֹהַי

עָלַי נַפְשִׁי תִשְׁתֹּוחָח עַל־כֵּן אֶזְכָּרְךָ
מֵאֶרֶץ יַרְדֵּן וְחֶרְמֹונִים מֵהַר מִצְעָר׃

 
Deep calls to deep at the thunder of thy cataracts;
all thy waves and thy billows have gone over me.
תְּהֹום־אֶל־תְּהֹום קֹורֵא לְקֹול צִנֹּורֶיךָ
כָּל־מִשְׁבָּרֶיךָ וְגַלֶּיךָ עָלַי עָבָרוּ׃
 
By day the LORD commands his steadfast love;
and at night his song is with me, a prayer to the God of my life.
יֹוםָם יְצַוֶּה יְהוָה חַסְדֹּו וּבַלַּיְלָה [כ= שִׁירָהּ] [ק= שִׁירֹו] עִמִּי תְּפִלָּה לְאֵל חַיָּי׃  
I say to God, my rock: "Why hast thou forgotten me?
Why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?"
אֹומְרָה לְאֵל סַלְעִי לָמָה שְׁכַחְתָּנִי
לָמָּה־קֹדֵר אֵלֵךְ בְּלַחַץ אֹויֵב׃
 
As with a deadly wound in my body, my adversaries taunt me,
while they say to me continually, "Where is your God?"
בְּרֶצַח בְּעַצְמֹותַי חֵרְפוּנִי צֹורְרָי
בְּאָמְרָמ אֵלַי כָּל־הַיֹּום אַיֵּה אֱלֹהֶיךָ׃
 
Why are you cast down, O my soul,
and why are you disquieted within me?
Hope in God;
for I shall again praise him, my help and my God.
מַה־תִּשְׁתֹּוחֲחִי נַפְשִׁי וּמַה־תֶּהֱמִי עָלָי
הֹוחִילִי לֵאלֹהִים כִּי־עֹוד אֹודֶנּוּ יְשׁוּעֹת פָּנַי וֵאלֹהָי׃
 
      << | Psalms: 42 | >>
