A throne of glory on high from the beginning is the place of our sanctuary,
Lord, the hope of Israel, all who abandon You will be put to shame. All who turn away from Me will be written in the dirt, for they have abandoned the fountain of living water, the Lord.
Heal me, Lord, and I will be healed; save me, and I will be saved, for You are my praise.
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 refuge 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 total destruction.
