Psalms 43:1  (King James Version)
Judge me, O God, and plead my cause against an ungodly nation: O deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man.

M. 2983. B.C. 1021. (Title.)
This Psalm is evidently a continuation of the preceding, and had the same author; and they are written as one in forty-six MSS. The sameness of subject, similarity of composition, and return of the same burden in both, are sufficient evidence of this opinion.
