New American Bible (Revised Edition)
1 Grant me justice, O God;
defend me from a faithless people;
from the deceitful and unjust rescue me.(A)
2 You, O God, are my strength.
Why then do you spurn me?
Why must I go about mourning,
with the enemy oppressing me?
3 (B)Send your light and your fidelity,[a]
that they may be my guide;(C)
Let them bring me to your holy mountain,
to the place of your dwelling,
4 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.
5 Why are you downcast, my soul?
Why do you groan within me?
Wait for God, for I shall again praise him,
my savior and my God.
