A Prayer for Healing

41 1  To the chief Musician. A Psalm of David. Blessed is he that understandeth the poor: Jehovah will deliver him in the day of evil. 2  Jehovah will preserve him, and keep him alive; he shall be made happy in the land; and thou wilt not deliver him to the will of his enemies. 3  Jehovah will sustain him upon the bed of languishing: thou turnest all his bed in his sickness. 4  As for me, I said, Jehovah, be gracious unto me: heal my soul; for I have sinned against thee.

5  Mine enemies wish me evil: When will he die, and his name perish? 6  And if one come to see [me], he speaketh falsehood; his heart gathereth wickedness to itself: he goeth abroad, he telleth [it]. 7  All that hate me whisper together against me; against me do they devise my hurt. 8  A thing of Belial cleaveth fast unto him; and now that he is laid down, he will rise up no more. 9  Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I confided, who did eat of my bread, hath lifted up [his] heel against me. 10  But thou, Jehovah, be gracious unto me, and raise me up, that I may requite them. 11  By this I know that thou delightest in me, because mine enemy doth not triumph over me. 12  But as for me, thou upholdest me in mine integrity, and settest me before thy face for ever. 13  Blessed be Jehovah, the God of Israel, from eternity to eternity! Amen, and Amen.

Thirsting for God

42 1  To the chief Musician. An instruction; of the sons of Korah. 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 bread day and night, while they say unto me all the day, Where is thy God? 4  These things I remember and have poured out my soul within me: how I passed along with the multitude, how I went on with them to the house of God, with the voice of joy and praise, a festive multitude. 5  Why art thou cast down, my soul, and art disquieted in me? hope in God; for I shall yet praise him, [for] the health of his countenance.

6  My God, my soul is cast down within me; therefore do I remember thee from the land of the Jordan, and the Hermons, from mount Mizar. 7  Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy cataracts; all thy breakers and thy billows are gone over me. 8  In the day-time will Jehovah command his loving-kindness, and in the night his song shall be with me, a 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 crushing in my bones mine adversaries reproach me, while they say unto me all the day, Where is thy God? 11  Why art thou cast down, my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope in God; for I shall yet praise him, [who is] the health of my countenance, and my God.
