Original text and translations
Judica me, Deus, et discerne causam meam de gente non sancta: ab homine iniquo et doloroso eripe me: quia tu es Deus meus, et fortitudo mea.
Emitte lucem tuam, et veritatem tuam: ipsa me deduxerunt, et adduxerunt in montem sanctum tuum, et in tabernacula tua.
Judge me, O God, and distinguish my cause from the nation that is not holy:
deliver me from the unjust and deceitful man:
for Thou art my God and my strength.
Send forth Thy light, and Thy truth:
they have conducted me, and brought me unto Thy holy hill, and into thy tabernacles.
