aA continuation of Ps. 42.Vindicate me, O God,
champion my cause
against faithless people;
rescue me from the treacherous, dishonest man.
For You are my God, my stronghold;
why have You rejected me?
Why must I walk in gloom,
oppressed by the enemy?
Send forth Your light and Your truth;
they will lead me;
they will bring me to Your holy mountain,
to Your dwelling-place,
that I may come to the altar of God,
God, my delight, my joy;
that I may praise You with the lyre,
O God, my God.
Why so downcast, my soul,
why disquieted within me?
Have hope in God;
I will yet praise Him,
my ever-present help, my God.
