Psalm 43 (WEBP)

[1] Vindicate me, God, and plead my cause against an ungodly nation. Oh, deliver me from deceitful and wicked men.
[2] For you are the God of my strength. Why have you rejected me? Why do I go mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?
[3] Oh, send out your light and your truth. Let them lead me. Let them bring me to your holy hill, to your tents.
[4] Then I will go to the altar of God, to God, my exceeding joy. I will praise you on the harp, God, my God.
[5] Why are you in despair, my soul? Why are you disturbed within me? Hope in God! For I shall still praise him: my Savior, my helper, and my God.

Psalm 43 (YLT)

[1] Judge me, O God, And plead my cause against a nation not pious, From a man of deceit and perverseness Thou dost deliver me,
[2] For thou art the God of my strength. Why hast Thou cast me off? Why mourning do I go up and down, In the oppression of an enemy?
[3] Send forth Thy light and Thy truth, They-they lead me, they bring me in, Unto Thy holy hill, and unto Thy tabernacles.
[4] And I go in unto the altar of God, Unto God, the joy of my rejoicing. And I thank Thee with a harp, O God, my God.
[5] What! bowest thou thyself, O my soul? And what! art thou troubled within me? Wait for God, for still I confess Him, The salvation of my countenance, and my God!
