Psalms 43:2 For thou [art] the God of my strength, why doest thou cast me off? why goe I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy? Psalms 43:3 O send out thy light & thy trueth; let them leade mee, let them bring mee vnto thy holy hill, and to thy Tabernacles. Psalms 43:4 Then will I goe vnto the Altar of God, vnto God my exceeding ioy: yea vpon the harpe will I praise thee, O God, my God.
He encourageth his soul to trust in God.
Psalms 43:5 Why art thou cast downe, O my soule? 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.
