But as for me, I watch(A) in hope(B) for the Lord,
    I wait for God my Savior;
    my God will hear(C) me.

Israel Will Rise

Do not gloat over me,(D) my enemy!
    Though I have fallen, I will rise.(E)
Though I sit in darkness,
    the Lord will be my light.(F)
Because I have sinned against him,
    I will bear the Lord’s wrath,(G)
until he pleads my case(H)
    and upholds my cause.
He will bring me out into the light;(I)
    I will see his righteousness.(J)
10 Then my enemy will see it
    and will be covered with shame,(K)
she who said to me,
    “Where is the Lord your God?”(L)
My eyes will see her downfall;(M)
    even now she will be trampled(N) underfoot
    like mire in the streets.

11 The day for building your walls(O) will come,
    the day for extending your boundaries.
12 In that day people will come to you
    from Assyria(P) and the cities of Egypt,
even from Egypt to the Euphrates
    and from sea to sea
    and from mountain to mountain.(Q)
13 The earth will become desolate because of its inhabitants,
    as the result of their deeds.(R)

Prayer and Praise

14 Shepherd(S) your people with your staff,(T)
    the flock of your inheritance,
which lives by itself in a forest,
    in fertile pasturelands.[a](U)
Let them feed in Bashan(V) and Gilead(W)
    as in days long ago.(X)

15 “As in the days when you came out of Egypt,
    I will show them my wonders.(Y)
