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.

Ps: 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.

Ps: Send forth Thy light, and Thy truth:
they have conducted me, and brought me unto Thy holy hill, and into thy tabernacles.
