Then she who is my enemy will see, And shame will cover her who said to me, "Where is the Lord your God?" My eyes will see her; Now she will be trampled down Like mud in the streets.
In the day when your walls are to be built, In that day the decree shall go far and wide. a12
In that day they b shall come to you From Assyria and the fortified cities, c From the fortress d to the River, e From sea to sea, And mountain to mountain.
Yet the land shall be desolate Because of those who dwell in it, And for the fruit of their deeds.
Shepherd Your people with Your staff, The flock of Your heritage, Who dwell solitarily in a woodland, In the midst of Carmel; Let them feed in Bashan and Gilead, As in days of old.
"As in the days when you came out of the land of Egypt, I will show them f wonders."
The nations shall see and be ashamed of all their might; They shall put their hand over their mouth; Their ears shall be deaf.
They shall lick the dust like a serpent; They shall crawl from their holes like snakes of the earth. They shall be afraid of the Lord our God, And shall fear because of You.
Who is a God like You, Pardoning iniquity And passing over the transgression of the remnant of His heritage? He does not retain His anger forever, Because He delights in mercy.
He will again have compassion on us, And will subdue our iniquities. You will cast all our g sins Into the depths of the sea.
You will give truth to Jacob And mercy to Abraham, Which You have sworn to our fathers From days of old.
