1 Judge me, O God, and plead my cause against an ungodly nation: Oh deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man.

2 For you are the God of my strength; why have you cast me off? Why do I go mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?

3 Oh send out your light and your truth; let them lead me: Let them bring me to your holy hill, And to your tabernacles.

4 Then I will go to the altar of God, To God my exceeding joy; And on the harp I will praise you, O God, my God.

5 Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted inside me? Hope in God; for I will yet praise him, My salvation and my God.
