11Vindicate me, O God, and 2plead my caseagainst an ungodlynation ; aO deliver me from 3the deceitful and unjustman !
For You are the 4God of my strength ; why have You 5rejected me? Why do I go6mourningbbecause of the oppression of the enemy ?
O send out Your 7light and Your truth, let them lead me; Let them bring me to Your 8holyhill And to Your 9dwellingplaces.
Then I will go to 10the altar of God, To Godcmy exceeding11joy ; And upon the 12lyre I shall praise You, O God, my God.
513Why are you din despair, O my soul ? And why are you disturbedwithin me? eHope in God, for I shall fagainpraise Him, The ghelp of my countenance and my God.
