But You, LORD, be gracious to me and raise me up; then I will repay them.
By this I know that You delight in me: my enemy does not shout in triumph over me.
We don't see any signs for us. There is no longer a prophet. And none of us knows how long this will last.
And Hezekiah had asked, "What is the sign that I will go up to the LORD's temple?"
turn that one over to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, so that his spirit may be saved in the Day of the Lord.
Don't discard me in my old age: as my strength fails, do not abandon me.
For my enemies talk about me, and those who spy on me plot together,
saying, "God has abandoned him; chase him and catch him, for there is no one to rescue [him]."
God, do not be far from me; my God, hurry to help me.
May my adversaries be disgraced and confounded; may those who seek my harm be covered with disgrace and humiliation.
My accusers will be clothed with disgrace; they will wear their shame like a cloak.
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.
Then my enemy will see, and she will be covered with shame, the one who said to me, "Where is the LORD your God?" My eyes will look at her in triumph; at that time she will be trampled like mud in the streets.
[For the choir director. A Davidic psalm.] I waited patiently for the LORD, and He turned to me and heard my cry for help.
You caused me to experience many troubles and misfortunes, but You will revive me again. You will bring me up again, even from the depths of the earth.
You will increase my honor and comfort me once again.
