The LORD made it known to me and I knew;
then thou didst show me their evil deeds.
But I was like a gentle lamb
led to the slaughter.
I did not know it was against me
they devised schemes, saying,
“Let us destroy the tree with its fruit,
let us cut him off from the land of the living,
that his name be remembered no more.”
But, O LORD of hosts, who judgest righteously,
who tries the heart and the mind,
let me see thy vengeance upon them,
for to thee have I committed my cause.
