Don't rejoice against me, my enemy. When I fall, I will arise. When I sit in darkness, the LORD will be a light to me.
I will bear the indignation of the LORD, Because I have sinned against him, Until he pleads my case, and executes judgment for me. He will bring me forth to the light. I will see his righteousness.
Then my enemy will see it, And shame will cover her who said to me, Where is the LORD your God? Then my enemy will see me and will cover her shame. Now she will be trodden down like the mire of the streets.
A day to build your walls -- In that day, he will extend your boundary.
In that day they will come to you from Ashshur and the cities of Mitzrayim, And from Mitzrayim even to the River, And from sea to sea, And mountain to mountain.
Yet the land will be desolate because of those who dwell therein, For the fruit of their doings.
Shepherd your people with your staff, The flock of your heritage, Who dwell by themselves in a forest, In the midst of fertile pasture land, let them feed; In Bashan and Gil`ad, as in the days of old.
"As in the days of your coming forth out of the land of Mitzrayim, I will show them marvelous things."
The nations will see and be ashamed of all their might. They will lay their hand on their mouth. Their ears will be deaf.
They will lick the dust like a serpent. Like crawling things of the eretz they shall come trembling out of their dens. They will come with fear to the LORD our God, And will be afraid because of you.
Who is a God like you, who pardons iniquity, And passes over the disobedience of the remnant of his heritage? He doesn't retain his anger forever, Because he delights in lovingkindness.
He will again have compassion on us. He will tread our iniquities under foot; And you will cast all their sins into the depths of the sea.
You will give truth to Ya`akov, and mercy to Avraham, As you have sworn to our fathers from the days of old.
