Vindicate me, O God, and plead my cause1 against an ungodly nation; rescue me2 from deceitful and wicked men.32
You are God my stronghold. Why have you rejected4 me? Why must I go about mourning,5 oppressed by the enemy?63
Send forth your light7 and your truth,8 let them guide me;9 let them bring me to your holy mountain,10 to the place where you dwell.114
Then will I go12 to the altar13 of God, to God, my joy14 and my delight.15 I will praise you with the harp,16 O God, my God.
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.17
