1Vindicate me, God, and defend my cause
against an ungodly nation;
rescue me from the deceitful and unjust man. # Ps 5:6; 26:1; 35:24
2For You are the God of my refuge.
Why have You rejected me?
Why must I go about in sorrow
because of the enemy’s oppression? # Ps 42:9; 88:14
3Send Your light and Your truth; let them lead me. # Ps 36:9
Let them bring me to Your holy mountain,
to Your dwelling place. # Ps 2:6; 46:4; 84:1
4Then I will come to the altar of God,
to God, my greatest joy. # Ps 26:6
I will praise You with the lyre,
God, my God. # Ps 33:2; 57:8
5Why am I so depressed?
Why this turmoil within me?
Put your hope in God, for I will still praise Him,
my Savior and my God. # Ps 42:5,11
