1 Judge for me, O God, and plead my case against an ungodly nation. O deliver me
from the deceitful and unjust man.
2 For You are the God of my strength; why do You cast me off? Why do I go mourning
under the oppression of the enemy?
3 O send out Your light and Your truth! Let them lead me; let them bring me to Your
holy hill, and to Your tabernacle.
4 Then I will go to the altar of God, the Mighty God, my exceeding joy; yea, on the harp
I will give thanks to You, O God, my God.
5 Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why do you murmur within me? Hope in
God; for I still praise Him for the deliverance coming from the presence of my God.
