Psalm 43 ©

David prays for justice against his fierce and crafty enemies; makes his complaint to God of his distress, entreats for a gracious performance of His promises, and encourages his drooping soul with faith and confidence.


JUDGE me, O God, and 1plead my cause against an ungodly nation: O deliver me from the deceitful and unjust 2man.


For thou art the God of my strength: why dost thou cast me off? why go I 3mourninga because of the oppression of the enemy?


O send out thy 4light and thy 5truth: let them lead me; let them bring me unto thy holy 6hill, and to thy 7tabernacles.


Then will I go unto the 8altar of God, unto God my exceeding 9joy: yea, upon the harp will I praise thee, O God my God.


10Whyb 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 11health of my countenance, and my God.
