Heal me, Lord, and I will be healed; save me, and I will be saved, for You are my praise.a15
Hear how they keep challenging me, "Where is the word of the Lord? Let it come!"
But I have not run away from being Your shepherd, and I have not longed for the fatal day. You know my words were spoken in Your presence.
Don't become a terror to me. You are my refugeb in the day of disaster.
Let my persecutors be put to shame, but don't let me be put to shame. Let them be terrified, but don't let me be terrified. Bring on them the day of disaster; shatter them with totalc destruction.
