1Judge me, O God, and plead my cause against an ungodly nation:
O deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man.
2For thou art the God of my strength: why dost thou cast me off?
Why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?
3O send out thy light and thy truth: Let them lead me;
Let them bring me unto thy holy hill, and to thy tabernacles.
4Then 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.
5Why 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.
