Enemies of mine, don't gloat over me! Although I have fallen, I will rise; though I live in the dark, ADONAI is my light.
I will endure ADONAI's rage, because I sinned against him; until he pleads my cause and judges in my favor. Then he will bring me out to the light, and I will see his justice.
My enemies will see it too, and shame will cover those who said to me, "Where is ADONAI your God?" I will gloat over them, as they are trampled underfoot like mud in the streets.
That will be the day for rebuilding your walls, a day for expanding your territory,
a day when [your] people will come [back] to you from Ashur and from the cities of Egypt, from Egypt and from as far as the Euphrates River, and from sea to sea, and from mountain to mountain.
The earth will be desolate for those living in it, as a result of their deeds.
Shepherd your people with your staff, the flock that belongs to you, who live alone, like a forest in the middle of a fertile pasture. Let them feed in Bashan and Gil'ad, as they did in days of old.
"As in the days when you came out of Egypt, I will show them wonders."
The nations will see and be put to shame, in spite of all their power. They will cover their mouths with their hands, and their ears will be deafened.
They will lick the dust like snakes; they will emerge from their fortresses trembling like reptiles that crawl about on the earth; they will come with fear to ADONAI our God, afraid because of you.
Who is a God like you, pardoning the sin and overlooking the crimes of the remnant of his heritage? He does not retain his anger forever, because he delights in grace.
He will again have compassion on us, he will subdue our iniquities. You will throw all their sins into the depths of the sea.
You will show truth to Ya'akov and grace to Avraham, as you have sworn to our ancestors since days of long ago.
