Do not gloat over me, my enemies! For though I fall, I will rise again. Though I sit in darkness, the LORD himself will be my light.
I will be patient as the LORD punishes me, for I have sinned against him. But after that, he will take up my case and punish my enemies for all the evil they have done to me. The LORD will bring me out of my darkness into the light, and I will see his righteousness.
Then my enemies will see that the LORD is on my side. They will be ashamed that they taunted me, saying, "Where is the LORD -- that God of yours?" With my own eyes I will see them trampled down like mud in the streets.
