7 O Lord, You 2induced me, and I was persuaded;
hYou are stronger than I, and have prevailed.
Everyone mocks me.
jI shouted, “Violence and plunder!”
Because the word of the Lord was made to me
A reproach and a derision daily.
Nor speak anymore in His name.”
But His word was in my heart like a kburning fire
Shut up in my bones;
I was weary of holding it back,
And lI could not.
enticed or persuaded
Lit. a laughingstock all the day
