1Judge me, O God, and plead my cause against an unfaithful people. Deliver me from the deceitful and unjust person!
2For you are the God of my mountain stronghold. Why have you rejected me? Why do I go about in mourner’s clothing because of the oppression of the enemy?
3Send out your light and your truth. Let them lead me. Let them bring me to your holy mountain, to your dwelling place.
4Then I will go to the altar of God, to the God of my exceeding joy. I will praise you on the harp, O God, my God.
5Why are you in despair, O my soul? Why are you disturbed within me? Hope in God! For I will still praise him, he is the salvation of my face, and my God.
