Rejoice not over me, O 2
my enemy; 3
when I fall, I shall rise; 4
when I sit in darkness, the LORD will be a light to me.
I will bear the indignation of the LORD because I have sinned against him, until 6
he pleads my cause and executes judgment for me. 7
He will bring me out to the light; I shall look upon his vindication.
my enemy will see, and shame will cover her who 9
said to me, "Where is the LORD your God?" 10
My eyes will look upon her; now she will be trampled down 11
like the mire of the streets.
A day for the building of your walls! In that day the boundary shall be far extended.
In that day they will come to you, 13
from Assyria and the cities of Egypt, and from Egypt to 14
the River, 15
from sea to sea and from mountain to mountain.
the earth will be desolate because of its inhabitants, for the fruit of their deeds.
Shepherd your people 18
with your staff, the flock of your inheritance, who dwell alone in a forest 19
in the midst of 20
a garden land; let them graze in Bashan and Gilead as in the days of old.
As in the days when you came out of the land of Egypt, I will show them marvelous things.
The nations shall see and be ashamed of all their might; 23
they shall lay their hands on their mouths; their ears shall be deaf;
they shall lick the dust like a serpent, like the crawling things of the earth; 25
they shall come trembling out of their strongholds; 26
they shall turn in dread to the LORD our God, and they shall be in fear of you.
God's Steadfast Love and Compassion 18 27
Who is a God like you, 28
pardoning iniquity and passing over transgression 29
for the remnant of his inheritance? 30
He does not retain his anger forever, because he delights in steadfast love.
He will 31
again have compassion on us; 32
he will tread our iniquities underfoot. 33
You will cast all our sins into the depths of the sea.
You will show faithfulness to Jacob and steadfast love to Abraham, 35
as you have sworn to our fathers from the days of old.
