14 I will enslave you to your enemies
    in[a] a land you do not know,
for my anger will kindle a fire
    that will burn against you.’

15 Lord, you understand;
    remember me and care for me.
    Avenge me on my persecutors.
You are long-suffering – do not take me away;
    think of how I suffer reproach for your sake.
16 When your words came, I ate them;
    they were my joy and my heart’s delight,
for I bear your name,
    Lord God Almighty.
