Micah 7:7-8

Context

7:7 But I will keep watching for the Lord;

I will wait for the God who delivers me.

My God will hear my lament. 1 

Jerusalem Will Be Vindicated

7:8 My enemies, 2  do not gloat 3  over me!

Though I have fallen, I will get up.

Though I sit in darkness, the Lord will be my light. 4 

1 tn Heb “me.” In the interest of clarity the nature of the prophet’s cry has been specified as “my lament” in the translation.

2 tn The singular form is understood as collective.

3 tn Or “rejoice” (KJV, NAB, NASB, NRSV); NCV “don’t laugh at me.”

4 sn Darkness represents judgment; light (also in v. 9) symbolizes deliverance. The Lord is the source of the latter.
