Shepherd2 your people with your staff,3 the flock of your inheritance, which lives by itself in a forest, in fertile pasturelands.a4 Let them feed in Bashan5 and Gilead6 as in days long ago.715
"As in the days when you came out of Egypt, I will show them my wonders.8"
Nations will see and be ashamed,9 deprived of all their power. They will lay their hands on their mouths10 and their ears will become deaf.
They will lick dust11 like a snake, like creatures that crawl on the ground. They will come trembling12 out of their dens; they will turn in fear13 to the LORD our God and will be afraid of you.
Who is a God14 like you, who pardons sin15 and forgives16 the transgression of the remnant17 of his inheritance?18 You do not stay angry19 forever but delight to show mercy.2019
You will again have compassion on us; you will tread our sins underfoot and hurl all our iniquities21 into the depths of the sea.2220
You will be true to Jacob, and show mercy to Abraham,23 as you pledged on oath to our fathers24 in days long ago.25
