詩篇 42

卷二:詩篇42—72

流落異鄉者的禱告

可拉後裔作的訓誨詩,交給樂長。

1上帝啊,我的心切慕你,
像鹿切慕溪水。
我心裡渴慕上帝,
渴慕永活的上帝,
我何時才能去朝拜祂呢?
我不吃不喝,晝夜以淚洗面,
人們整天譏笑我:
「你的上帝在哪裡?」
從前我帶領眾人浩浩蕩蕩去上帝的殿,
在歡呼、感恩聲中一起過節。
我回想這些事,
心中無限憂傷。
我的心啊!
你為何沮喪?為何煩躁?
要仰望上帝,
因為我還要讚美祂——我的救主,我的上帝。

我的上帝啊,我心中沮喪,
便在約旦河、黑門山和米薩山想起你。
你的瀑布發出巨響,
迴盪在深淵之間,
你的洪濤巨浪淹沒我。
白天耶和華將祂的慈愛澆灌我;
夜間我歌頌祂,
向賜我生命的上帝禱告。
我對上帝——我的磐石說:
「你為何忘記我?
為何要我受仇敵的攻擊,使我哀傷不已呢?」
10 仇敵的辱罵刺骨鑽心。
他們整天對我說:
「你的上帝在哪裡?」
11 我的心啊!
你為何沮喪?為何煩躁?
要仰望上帝,
因為我還要讚美祂——我的救主,我的上帝。

Psalm 42

BOOK II

Psalms 42–72

Psalm 42[a][b]

For the director of music. A maskil[c] of the Sons of Korah.

As the deer pants for streams of water,
    so my soul pants for you, my God.
My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.
    When can I go and meet with God?
My tears have been my food
    day and night,
while people say to me all day long,
    “Where is your God?”
These things I remember
    as I pour out my soul:
how I used to go to the house of God
    under the protection of the Mighty One[d]
with shouts of joy and praise
    among the festive throng.

Why, my soul, are you downcast?
    Why so disturbed within me?
Put your hope in God,
    for I will yet praise him,
    my Savior and my God.

My soul is downcast within me;
    therefore I will remember you
from the land of the Jordan,
    the heights of Hermon—from Mount Mizar.
Deep calls to deep
    in the roar of your waterfalls;
all your waves and breakers
    have swept over me.

By day the Lord directs his love,
    at night his song is with me—
    a prayer to the God of my life.

I say to God my Rock,
    “Why have you forgotten me?
Why must I go about mourning,
    oppressed by the enemy?”
10 My bones suffer mortal agony
    as my foes taunt me,
saying to me all day long,
    “Where is your God?”

11 Why, my soul, are you downcast?
    Why so disturbed within me?
Put your hope in God,
    for I will yet praise him,
    my Savior and my God.
