Psalms 43:1-5

  • God as Judge rescues

    • ‘Send out your light and truth’ (3)

    • “Why am I in despair?” (5)

    • “Wait for God” (5)

43  Judge me, O God,+Defend my legal case+ against a disloyal nation. Rescue me from the man of deception and unrighteousness.   For you are my God, my fortress.+ Why have you cast me off? Why must I walk about sad because of the oppression by my enemy?+   Send out your light and your truth.+ May these lead me;+May they guide me to your holy mountain and to your grand tabernacle.+   Then I will come to the altar of God,+To God, my exceeding joy. And I will praise you with the harp,+ O God, my God.   Why am I* in despair? Why is this turmoil within me? Wait for God,+For I will yet praise him as my Grand Savior and my God.+


Or “is my soul.”
