from tthe deceitful and unjust man
2 For you are uthe God in whom I take refuge;
why have you vrejected me?
Why do I wgo about mourning
3 xSend out your light and your truth;
let them bring me to your yholy hill
and to your zdwelling!
5 aWhy are you cast down, O my soul,
bHope in God; for I shall again praise him,
dour fathers have told us,
ein the days of old:
2 you with your own hand fdrove out the nations,
but gthem you planted;
but hthem you set free;
3 for not iby their own sword did they win the land,
and jthe light of your face,
kfor you delighted in them.
4 lYou are my King, O God;
mordain salvation for Jacob!
5 Through you we npush down our foes;
through your name we otread down those who rise up against us.
6 For not in pmy bow do I trust,
and have qput to shame those who hate us.
8 rIn God we have boasted continually,
9 But you have srejected us and disgraced us
and thave not gone out with our armies.
10 You have made us uturn back from the foe,
11 You have made us like vsheep for slaughter
and have wscattered us among the nations.
12 xYou have sold your people for a trifle,
13 You have made us ythe taunt of our neighbors,
the derision and zscorn of those around us.
14 You have made us aa byword among the nations,
and cshame has covered my face
at the sight of dthe enemy and the avenger.
17 eAll this has come upon us,
and covered us with jthe shadow of death.
21 mwould not God discover this?
nFor he knows the secrets of the heart.
22 Yet ofor your sake we are killed all the day long;
23 pAwake! Why are you sleeping, O Lord?
Rouse yourself! qDo not reject us forever!
24 Why rdo you hide your face?
25 For our ssoul is bowed down to the dust;
26 Rise up; tcome to our help!
uRedeem us for the sake of your steadfast love!
my tongue is like the pen of wa ready scribe.
2 You are xthe most handsome of the sons of men;
ygrace is poured upon your lips;
in cyour splendor and majesty!
4 In your majesty dride out victoriously
let your right hand teach you eawesome deeds!
6 fYour throne, O God, is forever and ever.
The gscepter of your kingdom is a scepter of uprightness;
7 hyou have loved righteousness and hated wickedness.
8 your robes are all fragrant with mmyrrh and aloes and cassia.
From ivory palaces nstringed instruments make you glad;
13 All glorious is vthe princess in her chamber, with robes interwoven with gold.
you will make them yprinces in all the earth.
17 zI will cause your name to be remembered in all generations;
49 gHear this, all peoples!
2 hboth low and high,
3 My mouth shall speak iwisdom;
4 I will incline my ear to ja proverb;
I will solve my kriddle to the music of the lyre.
