(43) A Psalm of David.
Judge me, O God, and plead my cause, against an ungodly nation: deliver me from the unjust and crafty man.
For you, O God, are my strength: therefore have you cast me off? and why do I go sad of countenance, while the enemy oppresses me?
Send forth your light and your truth: they have led me, and brought me to your holy mountain, and to your tabernacles.
And I will go in to the altar of God, to God who gladdens my youth: I will give thanks to you on the harp, O God, my God.
Therefore are you very sad, O my soul? and therefore do you trouble me? Hope in God; for I will give thanks to him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God.
