The Lord is good to those who wait for him,
    a refuge on the day of distress,
Taking care of those who look to him for protection,
    when the flood rages;
He makes an end of his opponents,
    and pursues his enemies into darkness.

Nineveh’s Judgment and Judah’s Restoration

What do you plot against the Lord,
    the one about to bring total destruction?
    No opponent rises a second time!

    he will pursue his foes into the realm of darkness.

Whatever they plot(F) against the Lord
    he will bring[a] to an end;
    trouble will not come a second time.
