Of the Day of Eternity and of the Straitnesses of this Life
All my enemies will be overwhelmed with shame and anguish; they will turn back and suddenly be put to shame.
My tongue will proclaim your righteousness, your praises all day long.
Come and hear, all you who fear God; let me tell you what he has done for me.
May my accusers perish in shame; may those who want to harm me be covered with scorn and disgrace.
