Psalms 43:1 Vindicate me, O God, and plead my cause, Against a nation, without lovingkindness, From the man of deceit and perversity, wilt thou deliver me?

Psalms 43:3 Send forth thy light and thy faithfulness, Let, them, lead me, Let them bring me into thy holy mountain, and into thy habitations: Psalms 43:4 That I may go in unto the altar of God, Unto GOD, mine exultant joy,That I may praise thee with the lyre, O Godmine own God!
He encourageth his soul to trust in God.
Psalms 43:5 Why shouldst thou be cast down, O my soul? And why shouldst thou moan over me, Wait thou for God, for yet shall I praise him, As the triumph of my presence, and my God.
