1Judge me, O God, and plead my cause against an ungodlyanation: O deliver me from the deceitful and unjustman.2
For thou art the God of my strength: why dost thou cast me off ? why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy ?
O send out thy light and thy truth: let them lead me; let them bring me unto thy holyhill, and to thy tabernacles.4
Then will I go unto the altar of God, unto God my exceedingbjoy: yea, upon the harp will I praise thee, O God my God.5
Why art thou cast down , O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God.
