For the Pure and Shining One by the prophetic singers of Korah’s clan[a]
A contemplative poem for instruction
43 God, clear my name. Plead my case against the unjust charges of these ungodly workers of wickedness. Deliver me from these lying degenerates. 2 For you are where my strength comes from[b] and my protector, so why would you leave me now? Must I be covered with gloom while the enemy comes after me, gloating with glee? 3 Pour into me the brightness of your daybreak! Pour into me your rays of revelation-truth! Let them comfort and gently lead me onto the shining path, showing the way into your burning presence, into your many sanctuaries of holiness. 4 Then I will come closer to your very altar until I come before you, the God of my ecstatic joy! I will praise you with the harp that plays in my heart to you, my God, my magnificent God! 5 Then I will say to my soul, “Don’t be discouraged; don’t be disturbed, for I fully expect my Savior-God to break through for me. Then I’ll have plenty of reasons to praise him all over again.” Yes, he is my saving grace!
43Originally there was no inscription for this psalm as it was part of Ps. 42.
