Psalms 79


79:1 A Psalm of Asaph. O God, the heathen have come into thy
 inheritance; thy holy temple have they defiled; they have laid
 Jerusalem on heaps.
79:2 The dead bodies of thy servants have they given [to be]
 food to the fowls of the heaven, the flesh of thy saints, to
 the beasts of the earth.
79:3 Their blood have they shed like water around Jerusalem; and
 [there was] none to bury [them].
79:4 We have become a reproach to our neighbors, a scorn and
 derision to them that are around us.
79:5 How long, LORD? wilt thou be angry for ever? shall thy
 jealousy burn like fire?
79:6 Pour out thy wrath upon the heathen that have not known
 thee, and upon the kingdoms that have not called upon thy name.
79:7 For they have devoured Jacob, and laid waste his
 dwelling-place.
79:8 O remember not against us former iniquities: let thy tender
 mercies speedily succor us: for we are brought very low.
79:9 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.
79:10 Why should the heathen say, Where [is] their God? let him
 be known among the heathen in our sight [by] avenging the blood
 of thy servants [which is] shed.
79:11 Let the sighing of the prisoner come before thee;
 according to the greatness of thy power preserve thou those
 that are appointed to die;
79:12 And render to our neighbors seven-fold into their bosom
 their reproach, with which they have reproached thee, O LORD.
79:13 So we thy people and sheep of thy pasture will give thee
 thanks for ever: we will show forth thy praise to all
 generations.
