Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the LORD shall be a light unto me.
When i fall
A lawless man borroweth, and will not repay, But, a righteous man, showeth favour and giveth;
But, thou, O Yahweh, show me favour and raise me up, That I may repay them.
For, seven times, may the righteous fall and yet arise, but, lawless men, shall stumble into calamity.
When i sit
The dwellers in darkness and death-shade, bound with oppression and iron;
Risen - in darkness, is light to the upright, The gracious and compassionate and righteous.
the people who were walking in darkness, Have seen a great light, - The dwellers in a land death-shadowed, A light, hath shined upon them.
Saying To them who are hound Go forth, To them who are in darkness, Shew yourselves, - By the roads, shall they graze, And on all bare places, shall be their pasture:
Who among you, revereth Yahweh, Hearkening unto the voice of his Servant, - That hath walked in dark places And hath had no gleam of light? Let him trust in the name of Yahweh, And lean upon his God.
The people that was sitting in darkness, a great light, beheld, - and, on them who were sitting in land and shade of death, Light rose on them.
Because of the yearning compassion of the mercy of our God, wherein shall visit us a day-dawn from on high, -
Thou didst, thrust sore, at me that I might fall, But, Yahweh, hath helped me.
