Judge me, O God, And plead my cause against a nation not pious, From a man of deceit and perverseness Thou dost deliver me,
For thou [art] the God of my strength.
Why hast Thou cast me off? Why mourning do I go up and down, In the oppression of an enemy?
Send forth Thy light and Thy truth, Theythey lead me, they bring me in, Unto Thy holy hill, and unto Thy tabernacles.
And I go in unto the altar of God, Unto God, the joy of my rejoicing.
And I thank Thee with a harp, O God, my God.
What! bowest thou thyself, O my soul? And what! art thou troubled within me? Wait for God, for still I confess Him, The salvation of my countenance, and my God!
