    King James Bible - Psalms 43:5

    Why art thou cast down, O 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.

    World English Bible

    Why are you in despair, my soul? Why are you disturbed within me? Hope in God! For I shall still praise him: my Savior, my helper, and my God. For the Chief Musician. By the sons of Korah. A contemplative psalm.

    Douay-Rheims - Psalms 43:5

    To thee, O God my God, I will give praise upon the harp : why
    art thou sad, O my soul? and why dost thou disquiet me? 42:6 Hope in God, for I will still give praise to him : the salvation of my countenance, and my God.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    Why
    art thou cast down, O 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.

    Ps 42:5,11

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 43:5

    ¿Por qué te abates, oh alma mía, y por qué bramas contra mí? Espera a Dios; porque aún tengo de alabar a quien es la salud de mi rostro, y el Dios mío.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Psalms 42:5

    Verse 5. Why
    art thou cast down ] Though our deliverance be delayed, God has not forgotten to be gracious. The vision, the prophetic declaration relative to our captivity, was for an appointed time. Though it appear to tarry, we must wait for it. In the end it will come, and will not tarry; why then should we be discouraged? Let us still continue to trust in God, for we shall yet praise him for the fullest proofs of his approbation in a great outpouring of his benedictions.

    ANALYSIS OF THE FORTY-THIRD PSALM

    This Psalm, which is of the same nature with the former, and properly a part or continuation of it, contains two chief things: - I. A petition, which is double. 1. One in the first verse. 2. The other in the fourth verse.

    II. A comfortable apostrophe to his own soul, ver. 5.

    First, He petitions God: ] 1. That, being righteous, he would be his Judge: "Judge me, O Lord." 2. That, being merciful, he would plead his cause: "Plead my cause." 3. That, being almighty, he would deliver him: "Deliver me," ver. 1.

    For this petition he assigns two reasons: ] 1. The unmerciful disposition of his enemies. 1. They were a factious, bloody, inhuman people: "Plead my cause against an ungodly nation," dysj al ywg goi lo chasid, "a people without mercy." 2.

    They were men of deceit and iniquity: "Deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man," ver. 1.

    2. The other reason he draws from the nature of God, and his relation to him: "For thou art the God of my strength." Thou hast promised to defend me. On this he expostulates: 1. "Why hast thou cast me off?" For so, to the eye of sense, it at present appears. 2. "Why go I mourning, because of the oppression of the enemy?" ver. 2.

    Secondly, The second part of his petition is, that he may be restored to God's favour, and brought back to his own country, ver. 3.

    1. "O send forth thy light and thy truth," the light of thy favour and countenance, and make thy promises true to me: "Let them lead me," ver. 3.

    2. "Let them guide me;" ] whither? To dignity and honours? No, I ask not those: I ask to be guided to thy holy hill and tabernacles, where I may enjoy the exercises of piety in thy pure worship, ver. 3.

    Thirdly, That he might the better move God to hear his petition, he does as good as vow that he would be thankful, and make it known how good God had been to him.

    1. "Then will I go unto the altar of God, my exceeding joy." The joy and content he would take in this should not be of an ordinary kind.

    2. "Yea, upon the harp will I praise thee, O God." His joy should be expressed outwardly by a Psalm, doubtless composed for the occasion; the singing of which should be accompanied by the harp, or such instruments of music as were then commonly used in the Divine worship.

    The petitions being ended, and now confident of audience and favour, he thus addresses his heavy and mournful heart as in the former Psalm: 1.

    Chiding himseif. 2. Encouraging himself.

    1. "Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me?" Chiding.

    2. "Hope in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God." Encouraging. See notes and analysis of the preceding Psalm.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    David endeavours to still his spirit, with hope and confidence in God.

    --As to the quarrel God had with David for sin, he prays, Enter no into judgment with me, if Thou doest so I shall be condemned; but as to the quarrel his enemies had with him, he prays, Lord, judge me, and i thy providence appear on my behalf. If we cannot comfort ourselves i God, we may stay ourselves upon him, and may have spiritual supports when we want spiritual delights. He never cast off any that trusted in him, whatever fears they may have had of their own state. We nee desire no more to make us happy, than the good that flow from God' favour, and is included in his promise. Those whom God leads, he lead to his holy hill; those, therefore, who pretend to be led by the Spirit, and yet turn their backs upon ordinance, deceive themselves. We are still to pray for the Spirit of light and truth, who supplies the want of Christ's bodily presence, to guide us in the way to heaven Whatever we rejoice or triumph in, the Lord must be the joy of it David applies to God as his never-failing hope. Let us pray earnestly that the Lord would send forth the truth of his word, and the light of his Spirit, to guide us into the way of holiness, peace, and salvation The desire of the Christian, like that of the prophet in distress, is to be saved from sin as well as sorrow; to be taught in the way of righteousness by the light of heavenly wisdom, shining in Jesus Christ and to be led by this light and truth to the New Jerusalem __________________________________________________________________
