The timing and text for this Psalm are given here.
1Judge me, god, and avenge my cause against a merciless people; deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man.
2For you are the god of my strength. Why have you forsaken me? Why do I go mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?
3Send out your light and your truth; let them comfort me; let them bring me to your holy mountain and to your tent.
4Then I will go before the altar of god, to god who makes me joyful with the joy of youth; yes, on the harp I will praise you, god, my god.
5Why are you disturbed, my soul? Why are you sad inside me? Hope in god; for I will yet praise him, who is the savior of my honor and my god.
The United Nations held a week long conference on racism with delegates from acorss the western world. The first full day was on April 20, 2009. The timing was typical for a localized mid-night expected time.
Iranian President Ahmadinejad, was the only head of state to attend and was given the podium on Monday.
In his speech he accused Israel of being racist. This was probably not much of a surprise considering his earlier speeches. What was a surprise was the response of the delegates who proceeded to walk out en-mass.
The Psalmist calls out for deliverance from the deceitful and unjust man in verse 1. Note the term is in the singular, which is likely Ahmadinejad himself.
By verse 3 the Psalm turns to the comfort of light and truth. In this case there was also the comfort of numbers, as most westerners in the audience left the room until the speech was over.
