15 aYou who know, O Lord,
Remember me, take notice of me,
And btake vengeance for me on my persecutors.
Do not, in view of Your patience, take me away;
Know that cfor Your sake I endure reproach.
16 Your words were found and I aate them,
And Your bwords became for me a joy and the delight of my heart;
For I have been ccalled by Your name,
O Lord God of hosts.
17 I adid not sit in the circle of merrymakers,
Nor did I exult.
Because of Your hand upon me I sat balone,
For You cfilled me with indignation.
