Vindicate me, my God, and plead my cause1 against an unfaithful nation. Rescue me2 from those who are deceitful and wicked.32
You are God my stronghold. Why have you rejected4 me? Why must I go about mourning,5 oppressed by the enemy?63
Send me your light7 and your faithful care,8 let them lead me;9 let them bring me to your holy mountain,10 to the place where you dwell.114
Then I will go12 to the altar13 of God, to God, my joy14 and my delight.15 I will praise you with the lyre,16 O God, my God.
Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.17
