1
Judge me, O God, and plead my cause against an ungodly nation: O deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man.
2
For thou art the God of my strength: why dost thou cast me off?
why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?
3
O send out thy light and thy truth: let them lead me;
let them bring me unto thy holy hill, and to thy tabernacles.
4
Then will I go unto the altar of God, unto God my exceeding joy: yea, upon the harp will I praise thee, O God my God.
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.
