Jeremiah 20:10–13

“Perhaps he will be deceived,

then we can overcome him,

and take our revenge on him.”

11 But the Lord is with me as a dread warrior;

therefore my persecutors will stumble,

they will not overcome me.

They will be greatly shamed,

for they will not succeed.

Their eternal dishonor

will never be forgotten.

12 O Lord of hosts, who triest the righteous,

who seest the heart and the mind,

praise the Lord!

For he has delivered the life of the needy

from the hand of evildoers.
