Why dost thou stand afar off, O LORD? Why dost thou hide thyself in times of trouble?
My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far from helping me and from the words of my cry?
if he is working to the north, I shall not see him; to the south, he hides himself, that I shall not see him.
When he gives rest, who then can make trouble? If he hides his face, who then can behold him? This applies to a nation and the same to a man,
How long wilt thou forget me, O LORD? for ever? how long wilt thou hide thy face from me?
Hide not thy face far from me; put not thy slave away in anger: thou hast been my help; do not leave me or forsake me, O God of my saving health.
LORD, by thy favour thou hast made my mountain to stand strong; thou didst hide thy face, and I was troubled.
