1 Judge me, O God, and plead my case against an ungodly nation. Deliver me from deceitful and unjust people!
2 You are the God of my strength. Why have you rejected me? Why do I go mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?
3 O send out your light and your truth. Let them lead me! Let them bring me to your holy hill and to your dwelling places.
4 I will go to the altar of God, to God my exceeding joy. Upon the lyre I will praise you, O God, my God.
5 Why am I in despair? Why am I so deeply disturbed within me? I will put my hope in God, for I will praise him as my salvation and my God.
