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 hast 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:
And 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 thou in God: for I shall yet praise him,
Who is the health of my countenance, and my God.
