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.

[1] Judge H8199 (8798) me, O God H430, and plead H7378 (8798) my cause H7379 against an ungodly H3808 H2623 nation H1471: O deliver H6403 (8762) me from the deceitful H4820 and unjust H5766 man H376.
[2] For thou [art] the God H430 of my strength H4581: why dost thou cast me off H2186 (8804)? why go H1980 (8691) I mourning H6937 (8802) because of the oppression H3906 of the enemy H341 (8802)?
[3] O send out H7971 (8798) thy light H216 and thy truth H571: let them lead H5148 (8686) me; let them bring H935 (8686) me unto thy holy H6944 hill H2022, and to thy tabernacles H4908.
[4] Then will I go H935 (8799) unto the altar H4196 of God H430, unto God H410 my exceeding H8057 joy H1524: yea, upon the harp H3658 will I praise H3034 (8686) thee, O God H430 my God H430.
[5] Why art thou cast down H7817 (8709), O my soul H5315? and why art thou disquieted H1993 (8799) within me? hope H3176 (8685) in God H430: for I shall yet praise H3034 (8686) him, [who is] the health H3444 of my countenance H6440, and my God H430.

Young’s Literal Translation

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!
