Micah 7:7-15Revised Standard Version (RSV)

But as for me, I will look to the Lord,
    I will wait for the God of my salvation;
    my God will hear me.

Penitence and Trust in God

Rejoice not over me, O my enemy;
    when I fall, I shall rise;
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 he pleads my cause
    and executes judgment for me.
He will bring me forth to the light;
    I shall behold his deliverance.
10 Then my enemy will see,
    and shame will cover her who said to me,
    “Where is the Lord your God?”
My eyes will gloat over her;
    now she will be trodden down
    like the mire of the streets.

A Prophecy of Restoration

11 A day for the building of your walls!
    In that day the boundary shall be far extended.
12 In that day they will come to you,
    from Assyria to[a] Egypt,
and from Egypt to the River,
    from sea to sea and from mountain to mountain.
13 But the earth will be desolate
    because of its inhabitants,
    for the fruit of their doings.

14 Shepherd thy people with thy staff,
    the flock of thy inheritance,
who dwell alone in a forest
    in the midst of a garden land;
let them feed in Bashan and Gilead
    as in the days of old.

15 As in the days when you came out of the land of Egypt
    I will show them[b] marvelous things.
