Instead, his delight is in the Lord’s instruction,
and he meditates on it day and night.
The day is Yours, also the night;
You established the moon and the sun.
I did not bring you any of the flock torn by wild beasts; I myself bore the loss. You demanded payment from me for what was stolen by day or by night.
You will not fear the terror of the night,
the arrow that flies by day,
The sun will not strike you by day
or the moon by night.
Your gates will always be open;
they will never be shut day or night
so that the wealth of the nations
may be brought into you,
with their kings being led in procession.
It will never go out—day or night.
Its smoke will go up forever.
It will be desolate, from generation to generation;
no one will pass through it forever and ever.
It will be a day known only to Yahweh, without day or night, but there will be light at evening.
