Judge me, O God, and plead my cause against an ungodly nation;
deliver me from the deceitful and unrighteous man.
For thou art the God of my strength: why hast thou cast me off?
why go I about mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?
Send out thy light and thy truth: *they* shall lead me, *they* shall bring me to thy holy mount, and unto thy habitations.
Then will I go unto the altar of God, unto the God of the gladness of my joy: yea, upon the harp will I praise thee, O God, my God.
Why art thou cast down, 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.
