I know that you are pleased with me, for my enemy does not triumph over me.
By this I know that You are pleased with me, Because my enemy does not shout in triumph over me.
I know that you are pleased with me, for you have not let my enemy triumph over me.
Meanwhile, I'm sure you're on my side--no victory shouts yet from the enemy camp!
By this I see that you have pleasure in me, because my hater does not overcome me.
By this I know that you are pleased with me; because my enemy has not triumphed over me.
By this I know that You are well pleased with me, Because my enemy does not triumph over me.
