Book II
Prayer for Deliverance
[1]  JUDGE me, O God, and plead my cause against an ungodly nation:
Oh deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man.
[2]  For thou art the God of my strength; why hast thou cast me off?
Why go I mourning because 1 of the oppression of the enemy?
[3]  Oh 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 2 exceeding joy;
And 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 thou in God; for I shall yet praise him,
Who is the help of my countenance, and my God.
Note 1. Heb. the gladness of my joy. [back]
Note 2. Heb. the gladness of my joy. [back]
