Chapter 79

1

 

 A Psalm of Asaph. O God, the heathen are come into thine inheritance; thy holy temple have they defiled; they have laid Jerusalem on heaps. 

 

 


2

 

 The dead bodies of thy servants have they given [to be] meat unto the fowls of the heaven, the flesh of thy saints unto the beasts of the earth. 

 

 


3

 

 Their blood have they shed like water round about Jerusalem; and [there was] none to bury [them]. 

 

 


4

 

 We are become a reproach to our neighbours, a scorn and derision to them that are round about us. 

 

 


5

 

 How long, LORD? wilt thou be angry for ever? shall thy jealousy burn like fire? 

 

 


6

 

 Pour out thy wrath upon the heathen that have not known thee, and upon the kingdoms that have not called upon thy name. 

 

 


7

 

 For they have devoured Jacob, and laid waste his dwelling place. 

 

 


8

 

 O remember not against us former iniquities: let thy tender mercies speedily prevent us: for we are brought very low. 

 

 


9

 

 Help us, O God of our salvation, for the glory of thy name: and deliver us, and purge away our sins, for thy name's sake. 

 

 


10

 

 Wherefore should the heathen say, Where [is] their God? let him be known among the heathen in our sight [by] the revenging of the blood of thy servants [which is] shed. 

 

 


11

 

 Let the sighing of the prisoner come before thee; according to the greatness of thy power preserve thou those that are appointed to die; 

 

 


12

 

 And render unto our neighbours sevenfold into their bosom their reproach, wherewith they have reproached thee, O Lord. 

 

 


13

 

 So we thy people and sheep of thy pasture will give thee thanks for ever: we will shew forth thy praise to all generations.
