Israel’s Confession and Comfort

(A)Do not rejoice over me, my enemy;
(B)When I fall, I will arise;
When I sit in darkness,
The Lord will be a light to me.
(C)I will bear the indignation of the Lord,
Because I have sinned against Him,
Until He pleads my (D)case
And executes justice for me.
He will bring me forth to the light;
I will see His righteousness.
10 Then she who is my enemy will see,
And (E)shame will cover her who said to me,
(F)“Where is the Lord your God?”
My eyes will see her;
Now she will be trampled down
Like mud in the streets.

11 In the day when your (G)walls are to be built,
In that day [a]the decree shall go far and wide.
12 In that day (H)they[b] shall come to you
From Assyria and the [c]fortified cities,
From the [d]fortress to [e]the River,
From sea to sea,
And mountain to mountain.
13 Yet the land shall be desolate
Because of those who dwell in it,
And (I)for the fruit of their deeds.
