World English Bible
Yahweh our God, other lords besides you have had dominion over us, but by you only will we make mention of your name.

Shall I not do to Jerusalem and her images Just as I have done to Samaria and her idols?"
Indeed, while following the way of Your judgments, O LORD, We have waited for You eagerly; Your name, even Your memory, is the desire of our souls.
I shall make mention of the lovingkindnesses of the LORD, the praises of the LORD, According to all that the LORD has granted us, And the great goodness toward the house of Israel, Which He has granted them according to His compassion And according to the abundance of His lovingkindnesses.
You meet him who rejoices in doing righteousness, Who remembers You in Your ways. Behold, You were angry, for we sinned, We continued in them a long time; And shall we be saved?
Though all the peoples walk Each in the name of his god, As for us, we will walk In the name of the LORD our God forever and ever.
