2 Thus says the LORD:
“Behold, awaters rise bout of the north, And shall be an overflowing flood; They shall overflow the land and all that is in it, The city and those who dwell within; Then the men shall cry, And all the inhabitants of the land shall wail.
3 At the anoise of the stamping hooves of his strong horses, At the rushing of his chariots, At the rumbling of his wheels, The fathers will not look back for their children, 1Lacking courage,
4 Because of the day that comes to plunder all the aPhilistines, To cut off from b and Sidon every helper who remains; For the LORD shall plunder the Philistines, cThe remnant of the country of dCaphtor.1
5 aBaldness has come upon Gaza, bAshkelon is cut off With the remnant of their valley. How long will you cut yourself?
6 “O you asword of the LORD, How long until you are quiet? Put yourself up into your scabbard, Rest and be still!
7 How can 1it be quiet, Seeing the LORD has agiven it a charge Against Ashkelon and against the seashore? There He has bappointed it.”

A Plea for Deliverance and Forgiveness
A Psalm of David.
1 TO aYou, O LORD, I lift up my soul.
2 O my God, I atrust in You; Let me not be ashamed; bLet not my enemies triumph over me.
3 Indeed, let no one who 1waits on You be ashamed; Let those be ashamed who deal treacherously without cause.
4 aShow me Your ways, O LORD; Teach me Your paths.
5 Lead me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; On You I wait all the day.
6 Remember, O LORD, aYour tender mercies and Your lovingkindnesses, For they are from of old.
7 Do not remember athe sins of my youth, nor my transgressions; bAccording to Your mercy remember me, For Your goodness’ sake, O LORD.
8 Good and upright is the LORD; Therefore He teaches sinners in the way.
9 The humble He guides in justice, And the humble He teaches His way.
10 All the paths of the LORD are mercy and truth, To such as keep His covenant and His testimonies.
