¶ Give sentence upon me (O God) and defend my cause against the unholy people: Oh deliver me from the deceitful, and wicked man. For thou (O God) art my strength: why hast thou shot me from thee? Why go I then so heavily, while the enemy oppresseth me? Oh send out thy light and thy truth, that they may lead me and bring me unto thy holy hill, and to thy dwelling. That I may go in to the altar of God, even unto the God which is my joy and pleasure, and upon the harp to give thanks unto thee, O God, my God. Why art thou so heavy (O my soul) and why art thou so disquieted within me? O put thy trust in God, for I will yet give him thanks for the help of his countenance, and because he is my God.
