Judge me, O God, and plead my cause against an ungodly nation: Oh deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man.
For thou art the God of my strength;
why hast thou cast me off?
Why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?
Oh send out thy light and thy truth;
let them lead me: Let them bring me unto thy holy hill, And to thy tabernacles.
Then will I go unto the altar of God, Unto God my exceeding joy;
And upon the harp will I praise thee, O God, my God.
Why art thou cast down, O my soul?
And why art thou disquieted within me?
Hope thou in God;
for I shall yet praise him, [Who is] the help of my countenance, and my God.
