        Book Two

        Why Are You Cast Down, O My Soul?

        To the choirmaster. A Maskil[a] of the Sons of Korah.

        42 As a deer pants for flowing streams,
            so pants my soul for you, O God.
        My soul thirsts for God,
            for the living God.
        When shall I come and appear before God?[b]
        My tears have been my food
            day and night,
        while they say to me all the day long,
            “Where is your God?”
        These things I remember,
            as I pour out my soul:
        how I would go with the throng
            and lead them in procession to the house of God
        with glad shouts and songs of praise,
            a multitude keeping festival.

        Why are you cast down, O my soul,
            and why are you in turmoil within me?
        Hope in God; for I shall again praise him,
            my salvation[c]

        Peace with God Through Faith

        Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we[a] have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through him we have also obtained access by faith[b] into this grace in which we stand, and we[c] rejoice[d] in hope of the glory of God. Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.
