1Establish justice for me, God!
Argue my case against ungodly people!
Rescue me from the dishonest and unjust!
2Because you are my God, my protective fortress!
Why have you rejected me?
Why do I have to walk around,
sad, oppressed by enemies?
3Send your light and truth—those will guide me!
Let them bring me to your holy mountain,
to your dwelling place.
4Let me come to God’s altar—
let me come to God, my joy, my delight—
then I will give you thanks with the lyre,
God, my God!
5Why, I ask myself, are you so depressed?
Why are you so upset inside?
Hope in God!
Because I will again give him thanks,
my saving presence and my God.
