Psalms 43:1-5

43  Judge me,+ O God, And do conduct my legal case+ against a nation not loyal.* From the man of deception and unrighteousness may you provide me with escape.+   For you are the God of my fortress.+ Why have you cast me off? Why do I walk about sad because of the oppression by the enemy?+   Send out your light and your truth.+ May these themselves lead me.*+ May they bring me to your holy mountain and to your grand tabernacle.+   And I will come to the altar of God,+ To God,* my exultant rejoicing.+ And I will laud you on the harp, O God, my God.*+   Why are you in despair, O my soul,+ And why are you boisterous within me? Wait for God,+ For I shall yet laud him as the grand salvation of my person and as my God.+
