Rule me rightly, O Elohim,

1 And plead my cause against a nation without kindness.
Oh, deliver me from a man of deceit and unrighteousness!

2 For You are the Elohim of my strength.
Why have You rejected me?
Why do I go mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?

3 Send forth Your light and Your truth!
Let them lead me,
Let them bring me to Your qodesh mountain
And to Your Mishkanoth.

4 That I might come to the altar of Elohim,
To Ĕl, the joy of my delight,
And praise You with the lyre,
O Elohim, my Elohim.

5 Why are you depressed, O my being?
And why are you restless within me?
Wait for Elohim: for I shall yet thank Him, the deliverance of my face,
And my Elohim.
