Psalm 79

1  O God, the heathen have come into your heritage; 
   your holy temple have they defiled
      and made Jerusalem a heap of stones.
2  The dead bodies of your servants they have given
      to be food for the birds of the air, 
   and the flesh of your faithful to the beasts of the field.
3  Their blood have they shed like water
      on every side of Jerusalem, 
   and there was no one to bury them.
4  We have become the taunt of our neighbours, 
   the scorn and derision of those that are round about us.
5  Lord, how long will you be angry, for ever? 
   How long will your jealous fury blaze like fire?
6  Pour out your wrath upon the nations that have not known you, 
   and upon the kingdoms that have not called upon your name.
7  For they have devoured Jacob 
   and laid waste his dwelling place.
8  Remember not against us our former sins; 
   let your compassion make haste to meet us,
      for we are brought very low.
9  Help us, O God of our salvation, for the glory of your name; 
   deliver us, and wipe away our sins for your name’s sake.
