The Psalms 43

A Prayer for Vindication and Deliverance
1  Judge me, O God, and plead my cause
against an ungodly nation:
O deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man.
2  For thou art the God of my strength:
why dost thou cast me off?
Why go I mourning
because of the oppression of the enemy?
3  O send out thy light and thy truth:
let them lead me;
let them bring me unto thy holy hill,
and to thy tabernacles.
4  Then will I go unto the altar of God,
unto God my exceeding joy:
yea, upon the harp will I praise thee,
O God my God.
5  Why art thou cast down, O my soul?
And why art thou disquieted within me?
Hope in God: for I shall yet praise him,
who is the health of my countenance, and my God.
