Wait for the God of Salvation

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 7:1 - Woe is me! For I have become
as when the summer fruit has been gathered,
as when the grapes have been gleaned:
there is no cluster to eat,
no first-ripe fig that my soul desires.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 7:2 - The godly has perished from the earth,
and there is no one upright among mankind;
they all lie in wait for blood,
and each hunts the other with a net.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 7:3 - Their hands are on what is evil, to do it well;
the prince and the judge ask for a bribe,
and the great man utters the evil desire of his soul;
thus they weave it together.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 7:4 - The best of them is like a brier,
the most upright of them a thorn hedge.
The day of your watchmen, of your punishment, has come;
now their confusion is at hand.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 7:5 - Put no trust in a neighbor;
have no confidence in a friend;
guard the doors of your mouth
from her who lies in your arms;[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 7:6 - for the son treats the father with contempt,
the daughter rises up against her mother,
the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law;
a man’s enemies are the men of his own house.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 7:7 - But as for me, I will look to the LORD;
I will wait for the God of my salvation;
my God will hear me.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 7:8 - Rejoice not over me, O my enemy;
when I fall, I shall rise;
when I sit in darkness,
the LORD will be a light to me.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 7:9 - I will bear the indignation of the LORD
because I have sinned against him,
until he pleads my cause
and executes judgment for me.
He will bring me out to the light;
I shall look upon his vindication.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 7:10 - Then my enemy will see,
and shame will cover her who said to me,
“Where is the LORD your God?”
My eyes will look upon her;
now she will be trampled down
like the mire of the streets.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 7:11 - A day for the building of your walls!
In that day the boundary shall be far extended.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 7:12 - In that day they[fn] will come to you,
from Assyria and the cities of Egypt,
and from Egypt to the River,
from sea to sea and from mountain to mountain.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 7:13 - But the earth will be desolate
because of its inhabitants,
for the fruit of their deeds.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 7:14 - Shepherd your people with your staff,
the flock of your inheritance,
who dwell alone in a forest
in the midst of a garden land;[fn]
let them graze in Bashan and Gilead
as in the days of old.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 7:15 - As in the days when you came out of the land of Egypt,
I will show them[fn] marvelous things.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 7:16 - The nations shall see and be ashamed of all their might;
they shall lay their hands on their mouths;
their ears shall be deaf;

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 7:17 - they shall lick the dust like a serpent,
like the crawling things of the earth;
they shall come trembling out of their strongholds;
they shall turn in dread to the LORD our God,
and they shall be in fear of you.

God’s Steadfast Love and Compassion

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 7:18 - Who is a God like you, pardoning iniquity
and passing over transgression
for the remnant of his inheritance?
He does not retain his anger forever,
because he delights in steadfast love.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 7:19 - He will again have compassion on us;
he will tread our iniquities underfoot.
You will cast all our[fn] sins
into the depths of the sea.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 7:20 - You will show faithfulness to Jacob
and steadfast love to Abraham,
as you have sworn to our fathers
from the days of old.
