Be my judge, O God, supporting my cause against a nation without religion;
O keep me from the false and evil man.
You are the God of my strength;
why have you put me from you?
why do I go in sorrow because of the attacks of my haters?
O send out your light and your true word;
let them be my guide: let them take me to your holy hill, and to your tents.
Then I will go up to the altar of God, to the God of my joy;
I will be glad and give praise to you on an instrument of music, O God, my God.
Why are you crushed down, O my soul?
and why are you troubled in me?
put your hope in God, for I will again give him praise who is my help and my God.
