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.+
