Lamentations 2:15-17 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

15 All who pass along the way
Clap their hands in ridicule at you;
They [a]hiss and shake their heads
At the daughter of Jerusalem:
“Is this the city of which they said,
Perfect in beauty,
A joy to all the earth’?”
16 All your enemies
Have opened their mouths wide against you;
They [b]hiss and gnash their teeth.
They say, “We have engulfed her!
This certainly is the day which we awaited;
We have reached it, we have seen it!”
17 The Lord has done what He determined;
He has accomplished His word
Which He commanded from days of old.
He has torn down without sparing,
And He has helped the enemy to rejoice over you;
He has exalted the [c]might of your adversaries.

Lamentations 2:15-17 New International Version (NIV)

15 All who pass your way
    clap their hands at you;
they scoff and shake their heads
    at Daughter Jerusalem:
“Is this the city that was called
    the perfection of beauty,
    the joy of the whole earth?”

16 All your enemies open their mouths
    wide against you;
they scoff and gnash their teeth
    and say, “We have swallowed her up.
This is the day we have waited for;
    we have lived to see it.”

17 The Lord has done what he planned;
    he has fulfilled his word,
    which he decreed long ago.
He has overthrown you without pity,
    he has let the enemy gloat over you,
    he has exalted the horn[a] of your foes.

Micah 7:8-10 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Do not rejoice over me, enemy of mine.
Though I fall I will rise;
Though I live in darkness, the Lord is a light for me.

I will endure the rage of the Lord
Because I have sinned against Him,
Until He pleads my case and executes justice for me.
He will bring me out to the light,
And I will look at His [a]righteousness.
10 Then my enemy will see,
And shame will cover her who said to me,
“Where is the Lord your God?”
My eyes will look at her;
[b]At that time she will [c]be trampled down
Like mud of the streets.

Micah 7:8-10 New International Version (NIV)

Israel Will Rise

Do not gloat over me, my enemy!
    Though I have fallen, I will rise.
Though I sit in darkness,
    the Lord will be my light.
Because I have sinned against him,
    I will bear the Lord’s wrath,
until he pleads my case
    and upholds my cause.
He will bring me out into the light;
    I will see his righteousness.
10 Then my enemy will see it
    and will be covered with shame,
she who said to me,
    “Where is the Lord your God?”
My eyes will see her downfall;
    even now she will be trampled underfoot
    like mire in the streets.
