Jeremiah Prays for Deliverance
Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be healed;
Save me, and I shall be saved,
For w You are my praise.
Indeed they say to me,
x "Where is the word of the LORD?
Let it come now!"
As for me, y I have not hurried away from being a shepherd who follows You,
Nor have I desired the woeful day;
You know what came out of my lips;
It was right there before You.
Do not be a terror to me;
z You are my hope in the day of doom.
a Let them be ashamed who persecute me,
But b do not let me be put to shame;
Let them be dismayed,
But do not let me be dismayed.
Bring on them the day of doom,
And c destroy them with double destruction!

Jeremiah 1:4 - 12
Then the word of the LORD came to me, saying:
O LORD, my strength and my fortress, My refuge in the day of affliction, The Gentiles shall come to You From the ends of the earth and say, "Surely our fathers have inherited lies, Worthlessness and unprofitable things.
The LORD is good, A stronghold in the day of trouble; And He knows those who trust in Him.
Let those be put to shame and brought to dishonor Who seek after my life; Let those be turned back and brought to confusion Who plot my hurt.
Let them be ashamed and confounded Who seek my life; Let them be turned back and confused Who desire my hurt.
Woe is me, my mother, That you have borne me, A man of strife and a man of contention to the whole earth! I have neither lent for interest, Nor have men lent to me for interest. Every one of them curses me.
Then they said, "Come and let us devise plans against Jeremiah; for the law shall not perish from the priest, nor counsel from the wise, nor the word from the prophet. Come and let us attack him with the tongue, and let us not give heed to any of his words.
O my God, I trust in You; Let me not be ashamed; Let not my enemies triumph over me.
But, O LORD of hosts, You who judge righteously, Testing the mind and the heart, Let me see Your vengeance on them, For to You I have revealed my cause.
