You hide them in the protection of Your presence; You conceal them in a shelter from the schemes of men, from quarrelsome tongues.
No weapon formed against you will succeed, and you will refute any accusation raised against you in court. This is the heritage of the LORD's servants, and their righteousness is from Me." [This is] the LORD's declaration.
Do not rejoice over me, my enemy! Though I have fallen, I will stand up; though I sit in darkness, the LORD will be my light.
Because I have sinned against Him, I must endure the LORD's rage until He argues my case and establishes justice for me. He will bring me into the light; I will see His salvation.
Therefore don't judge anything prematurely, before the Lord comes, who will both bring to light what is hidden in darkness and reveal the intentions of the hearts. And then praise will come to each one from God.
[Your] life will be brighter than noonday; [its] darkness will be like the morning.
So you will again see the difference between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God and one who does not serve Him.
Then the righteous will shine like the sun in their Father's kingdom. Anyone who has ears should listen!
