International Standard Version
1 You be my judge, God, and plead my case against an unholy nation; rescue me from the deceitful and unjust man.
2Since you are the God who strengthens me, why have you forsaken me? Why do I go around mourning under the enemy's oppression?"
3Send forth your light and your truth so they may guide me. Let them bring me to your holy mountain and to your dwelling places.
4Then I will approach the altar of God, even to God in whom my joy finds its source. Then I will praise you with the lyre, God, my God,
5Why are you in despair, my soul? Why are you disturbed within me? Hope in God, because I will praise him once again, since his presence saves me and he is my God.
