Vindicate me, God, and defend my cause against an ungodly nation; rescue me from the deceitful and unjust man.
For 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?
Send Your light and Your truth; let them lead me. Let them bring me to Your holy mountain, to Your dwelling place.
Then I will come to the altar of God, to God, my greatest joy. I will praise You with the lyre, God, my God.
Why 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.
