But as for me, I watch1 in hope2 for the LORD, I wait for God my Savior; my God will hear3 me.
Do not gloat over me,4 my enemy! Though I have fallen, I will rise.5 Though I sit in darkness, the LORD will be my light.6
Because I have sinned against him, I will bear the LORD's wrath,7 until he pleads my case8 and establishes my right. He will bring me out into the light;9 I will see his righteousness.10
