12 A glorious throne,(A) exalted from the beginning,
    is the place of our sanctuary.
13 Lord, you are the hope(B) of Israel;
    all who forsake(C) you will be put to shame.
Those who turn away from you will be written in the dust(D)
    because they have forsaken the Lord,
    the spring of living water.(E)

14 Heal me, Lord, and I will be healed;(F)
    save(G) me and I will be saved,
    for you are the one I praise.(H)
15 They keep saying to me,
    “Where is the word of the Lord?
    Let it now be fulfilled!”(I)
16 I have not run away from being your shepherd;
    you know I have not desired the day of despair.
    What passes my lips(J) is open before you.
17 Do not be a terror(K) to me;
    you are my refuge(L) in the day of disaster.(M)
18 Let my persecutors be put to shame,
    but keep me from shame;
let them be terrified,
    but keep me from terror.
Bring on them the day of disaster;
    destroy them with double destruction.(N)
