Vindicate a me, O God,
And b plead my cause against an ungodly nation;
Oh, deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man!
For You are the God of my strength;
Why do You cast me off?
c Why do I go mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?
d Oh, send out Your light and Your truth!
Let them lead me;
Let them bring me to e Your holy hill
And to Your tabernacle.
Then I will go to the altar of God,
To God my exceeding joy;
And on the harp I will praise You,
O God, my God.
f Why are you cast down, O my soul?
And why are you disquieted within me?
Hope in God;
For I shall yet praise Him,
The help of my countenance and my God.

Vindicate me, O LORD, For I have walked in my integrity. I have also trusted in the LORD; I shall not slip.
Vindicate me, O LORD my God, according to Your righteousness; And let them not rejoice over me.
1 Samuel 24:15
"Therefore let the LORD be judge, and judge between you and me, and see and plead my case, and deliver me out of your hand."
Plead my cause, O LORD, with those who strive with me; Fight against those who fight against me.
I will say to God my Rock, "Why have You forgotten me? Why do I go mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?
Do not withhold Your tender mercies from me, O LORD; Let Your lovingkindness and Your truth continually preserve me.
I cried to the LORD with my voice, And He heard me from His holy hill. Selah
Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God, for I shall yet praise Him For the help of His countenance.
Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God; For I shall yet praise Him, The help of my countenance and my God.
