Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Vindicate me, O God, and defend my cause against an ungodly people; from deceitful and unjust men deliver me! 1 Vindicate me, O God, and plead my cause against an ungodly nation; rescue me from deceitful and wicked men.
2 For thou art the God in whom I take refuge; why hast thou cast me off? Why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy? 2 You are God my stronghold. Why have you rejected me? Why must I go about mourning, oppressed by the enemy?
3 Oh send out thy light and thy truth; let them lead me, let them bring me to thy holy hill and to thy dwelling! 3 Send forth your light and your truth, let them guide me; let them bring me to your holy mountain, to the place where you dwell.
4 Then I will go to the altar of God, to God my exceeding joy; and I will praise thee with the lyre, O God, my God. 4 Then will I go to the altar of God, to God, my joy and my delight. I will praise you with the harp, O God, my God.
5 Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God; for I shall again praise him, my help and my God. 5 Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.
