    Psalms 42
    King James Version

    1 As the hart panteth after the water brooks,
    so panteth my soul after thee, O God.​
    2 My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God:
    when shall I come and appear before God?​
    3 My tears have been my meat day and night,
    while they continually say unto me,
    Where is thy God?​

    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,
    with the voice of joy and praise,
    with a multitude that kept holyday.​

    5 Why art thou cast down, O my soul?
    and why art thou disquieted in me?
    hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him
    for the help of his countenance.​

    6 O my God, my soul is cast down within me:
    therefore will I remember thee from the land of Jordan,
    and of the Hermonites,
    from the hill Mizar.​
    7 Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts:
    all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me.​
    8 Yet the Lord will command his lovingkindness in the day time,
    and in the night his song shall be with me,
    and my prayer unto the God of my life.​

    9 I will say unto God my rock,
    Why hast thou 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 thy God?​

    11 Why art thou cast down, O my soul?
    and why art thou disquieted within me?
    hope thou in God:
    for I shall yet praise him,
    who is the health of my countenance, and my God.

    Trusting and Obeying the God of Truth: Loving others within the limits that truth allows. "...not as though I wrote to thee a new commandment, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another. And this is love, that we walk according to his commandments; this is the commandment, just as you have heard from the beginning, so that you should walk in it." —2 John 1:5-6
