Psalm 43 King James Version

A Prayer for Vindication and Deliverance

43 1 Judge me, O God, and plead my cause against an ungodly [1] nation: O deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man. 2 For thou art the God of my strength: why dost thou cast me off? why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy? 3 O send out thy light and thy truth: let them lead me; let them bring me unto thy holy hill, and to thy tabernacles. 4 Then will I go unto the altar of God, unto God my exceeding [2] joy: yea, upon the harp will I praise thee, O God my God. 5 Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God.


[1] 43:1 ungodly: or, unmerciful

[2] 43:4 my exceeding...: Heb. the gladness of my joy
