Do not gloat over me,1 my enemy! Though I have fallen, I will rise.2 Though I sit in darkness, the LORD will be my light.39
Because I have sinned against him, I will bear the LORD's wrath,4 until he pleads my case5 and establishes my right. He will bring me out into the light;6 I will see his righteousness.710
Then my enemy will see it and will be covered with shame,8 she who said to me, "Where is the LORD your God?"9 My eyes will see her downfall;10 even now she will be trampled11 underfoot like mire in the streets.
The day for building your walls12 will come, the day for extending your boundaries.
In that day people will come to you from Assyria13 and the cities of Egypt, even from Egypt to the Euphrates and from sea to sea and from mountain to mountain.1413
The earth will become desolate because of its inhabitants, as the result of their deeds.15
