Psalms 43

Psalm 431

43:1 Vindicate me, O God!

Fight for me2 against an ungodly nation!

Deliver me3 from deceitful and evil men!4

43:2 For you are the God who shelters me.5

Why do you reject me?6

Why must I walk around7 mourning8

because my enemies oppress me?

43:3 Reveal9 your light10 and your faithfulness!

They will lead me,11

they will escort12 me back to your holy hill,13

and to the place where you live.14

43:4 Then I will go15 to the altar of God,

to the God who gives me ecstatic joy,16

so that I express my thanks to you,17 O God, my God, with a harp.

43:5 Why are you depressed,18 O my soul?19

Why are you upset?20

Wait for God!

For I will again give thanks

to my God for his saving intervention.21
