For the End: A Psalm of David. Without Superscription among the Hebrews.
(Psalm 43 - Hebrew Numbering)
Judge me, O God, and give judgment in my cause, against a nation that is not holy; from a man unjust and crafty deliver me.
For Thou, O God, art my strength.
Wherefore hast Thou cast me off?
And wherefore go I with downcast face whilst mine enemy afflicteth me?
O send out Thy light and Thy truth; they have guided me along the way, and have brought me unto Thy holy mountain, and unto Thy tabernacles.
And I shall go in unto the altar of God, unto God Who giveth gladness to my youth; I will give praise unto Thee, O God, my God, with the harp.
Why art thou cast down, O my soul?
And why dost thou disquiet me?
Hope in God, for I will give thanks unto Him; He is the salvation of my countenance, and my God.
