Why sayest thou, O Jacob, and speakest, O Israel, My way is hid from the LORD, and my judgment is passed over from my God?
As God liveth, who hath taken away my judgment; and the Almighty, who hath vexed my soul;
Then I said, I have laboured in vain, I have spent my strength for nought, and in vain: yet surely my judgment is with the LORD, and my work with my God.
But Zion said, The LORD hath forsaken me, and my Lord hath forgotten me.
And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them?
