8 1Do not rejoice over me, O 2my enemy. Though I fall I will 3rise; Though I dwell in darkness, the LORD is a 4light for me.
9 I will bear the indignation of the LORD Because I have sinned against Him, Until * He 5pleads my case and executes justice for me. He will bring me out to the 6light, And I will see His 7righteousness.
10 Then my enemy will see, And shame will cover her who 8said to me, "Where is the LORD your God?" My eyes will look on her; At that time she will be 9trampled down Like mire of the streets.
11 It will be a day for 10building your walls. On that day will your boundary be extended.
12 It will be a day when they will 11come to you From Assyria and the cities of Egypt, From Egypt even to the Euphrates, Even from sea to sea and mountain to mountain.
13 And the earth will become 12desolate because of her inhabitants, On account of the 13fruit of their deeds.
14 14Shepherd Your people with Your 15scepter, The flock of Your possession Which dwells by itself in the woodland, In the midst of a fruitful field. Let them feed in 16Bashan and Gilead 17As in the days of old.
15 "As in the days when you came out from the land of Egypt, I will show 18you miracles."
16 Nations 19will see and be ashamed Of all their might. They will 20put their hand on their mouth, Their ears will be deaf.
17 They will 21lick the dust like a serpent, Like 22reptiles of the earth. They will come 23trembling out of their fortresses; To the LORD our God they will come in 24dread And they will be afraid before You.
18 Who is a God like You, who 25pardons iniquity And passes over the rebellious act of the 26remnant of His possession? He does not 27retain His anger forever, Because He 28delights in unchanging love.
19 He will again have compassion on us; 29He will tread our iniquities under foot. Yes, You will 30cast all their sins Into the depths of the sea.
20 You will give 31truth to Jacob And unchanging love to Abraham, Which You 32swore to our forefathers From the days of old.
