Psalm 43:1-3

“Judge and vindicate me, O God; plead and defend my cause against an ungodly nation. O deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man! For You are the God of my strength [my Stronghold—in Whom I take refuge]; why have You cast me off? Why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy? O send out Your light and Your truth, let them lead me; let them bring me to Your holy hill and to Your dwelling.” (Amplified Version)

Hebrew ‘vindicate’ (cleared from suspicion) is דון or din and means to ‘execute judgment’

Hebrew ‘ungodly’ (immoral) is לא חסיד or lo chadid and means ‘no kindness, no piety’

Hebrew ‘deceitful’ (guilty of misleading others) is מרמה or mirmah and means ‘dishonest, treacherous’

Hebrew ‘oppression’ (unjust treatment or control) is עשפק or oshek and means ‘extortion’
