12 1A glorious throne on high from the beginning Is the place of our sanctuary.
13 O LORD, the 2hope of Israel, All who 3forsake You will be put to shame. Those who turn away on earth will be 4written down, Because they have forsaken the fountain of living water, even the LORD.
14 5Heal me, O LORD, and I will be healed; 6Save me and I will be saved, For You are my 7praise.
15 Look, they keep 8saying to me, "Where is the word of the LORD? Let it come now!"
16 But as for me, I have not hurried away from being a shepherd after You, Nor have I longed for the woeful day; 9You Yourself know that the utterance of my lips Was in Your presence.
17 Do not be a 10terror to me; You are my 11refuge in the day of disaster.
18 Let those who persecute me be 12put to shame, but as for me, 13let me not be put to shame; Let them be dismayed, but let me not be dismayed. 14Bring on them a day of disaster, And crush them with twofold destruction!
