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