15 hO Lord, thou knowest: iremember me, and visit me, and ikrevenge me of my persecutors; take me not away in thy longsuffering: kkknow that lfor thy sake I have suffered rebuke. 16 Thy words were found, and mI did eat them; and nthy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for †I am called by thy name, O Lord God of hosts. 17 oI sat not in pthe assembly of the mockers, nor rejoiced; ppI sat alone because of thy hand: for thou hast filled me with indignation. 18 Why is my pain perpetual, and my wound qincurable, which rrefuseth to be healed? wilt thou be altogether unto me sas a liar, and sas waters that †fail?
19 Therefore thus saith the Lord, tIf thou return, then will I bring thee again, and thou shalt tustand before me: and if thou take forth the precious from the vile, thou shalt be as my mouth: let them return unto thee; but return not thou unto them. 20 And I vwill make thee unto this people a fenced brasen wall: and they shall fight against thee, but wthey shall not prevail against thee: xfor I am with thee to save thee and to deliver thee, saith the Lord. 21 And wI will deliver thee out of the hand of the wicked, and I will redeem thee out of the hand of ythe terrible.
