|<< Psalm 42 >>|
Aramaic Bible in Plain English
Like a stag that bellows over the brook of waters, so also my soul bellows for you, Lord Jehovah!
2My soul is thirsty for you, Living God! When shall I come and see your face, oh, God?
3My tears have been food for me by day and by night, while they have been saying to me every day, “Where is your God?”
4I remembered these things and my soul was troubled, therefore I shall enter into your strong shelter, unto the house of God; many rejoice with the voice of praise and thanksgiving!
5Why are you troubled, my soul, and why have you perplexed me? Wait for God, because again I shall praise him, the Savior of my whole being, and my God.
6My soul was troubled against me, therefore I have remembered you from the land of Jordan and from Hermon and from Mount Zora.
7The Deep to deep calls The Voice to the voice of the waters of your fountains. All your storms and your waves passed over me.
8By day Lord Jehovah will command his mercies and his songs in the night; prayer is with me unto the living God.
9I have said to God, “Why have you forgotten me, and why do I walk sadly in distress of my enemies?”
10In the breaking of my bones, my enemies reproached me as they have been saying to me every day, “Where is your God?”
11Why have you agitated me, my soul? And why have you perplexed me? Look for God, because I shall again praise him, The Savior of my entire being, and my God.
