Psalm 42, along with Psalm 43, contains a message helpful to combat depression:[1]

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 and my God.

There are very old Hebrew manuscripts in which Psalms 42 and 43 are combined into a single psalm, and they share similar language (perhaps a refrain) at Psalm 42:5, 11, and Psalm 43:5.[2]
