Chapter 43

David promiseth to serve God joyfully.

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 dost thou cast me off; why go I mourning because 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 exceeding 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.
