Chapter 43


Grant me justice, God; defend me from a faithless people; from the deceitful and unjust rescue me.


You, God, are my strength. Why then do you spurn me? Why must I go about mourning, with the enemy oppressing me?


1 Send your light and fidelity, that they may be my guide And bring me to your holy mountain, to the place of your dwelling,


That I may come to the altar of God, to God, my joy, my delight. Then I will praise you with the harp, O God, my God.


Why are you downcast, my soul? Why do you groan within me? Wait for God, whom I shall praise again, my savior and my God.


1 [3] Your light and fidelity: a pair of divine attributes personified as guides for the pilgrimage. The psalmist seeks divine protection for the journey to Jerusalem.
