1 Judge me, O God,
and plead my case against an ungodly nation.
Rescue me from deceitful and unjust people.
2 You are my fortress, O God!
Why have you rejected me?
Why must I walk around in mourning
while the enemy oppresses me?
3 Send your light and your truth.
Let them guide me.
Let them bring me to your holy mountain
and to your dwelling place.
4 Then let me go to the altar of God, to God my ⌊highest⌋ joy,
and I will give thanks to you on the lyre, O God, my God.
5 Why are you discouraged, my soul?
Why are you so restless?
Put your hope in God,
because I will still praise him.
He is my savior and my God.
