My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God?
King James Bible
My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?
American Standard Version
My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: When shall I come and appear before God?
Young's Literal Translation
My soul thirsted for God, for the living God, When do I enter and see the face of God?
Psalm 42:2 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
When shall I come - When, when shall I have the privilege of appearing in his courts before God? In the mouth of a Christian these words would import: "When shall I see my heavenly country? When shall I come to God, the Judge of all, and to Jesus, the Mediator of the new covenant?" He who is a stranger and a pilgrim here below, and feels a heart full of piety to God, may use these words in this sense; but he who feels himself here at home, whose soul is not spiritual, wishes the earth to be eternal, and himself eternal on it - feels no panting after the living God.
