14 And I shall enslave you to your enemies
    in a land you do not know,
For fire has broken out from my anger,
    it is kindled against you.
15     You know, Lord:
Remember me and take care of me,
    avenge me on my persecutors.
Because you are slow to anger, do not banish me;
    know that for you I have borne insult.(A)
16 When I found your words, I devoured them;
    your words were my joy, the happiness of my heart,
Because I bear your name,
    Lord, God of hosts.
