Psalms 79 (asv)
They have laid Jerusalem in heaps.
And there was none to bury them.
79:4We are become a reproach to our neighbors,
A scoffing and derision to them that are round about us.
79:5How long, O Jehovah? wilt thou be angry for ever?
79:6Pour out thy wrath upon the nations that know thee not,
And upon the kingdoms that call not upon thy name.
79:7For they have devoured Jacob,
And laid waste his habitation.
79:8Remember not against us the iniquities of our forefathers:
Let thy tender mercies speedily meet us;
For we are brought very low.
And deliver us, and forgive our sins, for thy name's sake.
79:10Wherefore should the nations say, Where is their God?
Be known among the nations in our sight.
79:11Let the sighing of the prisoner come before thee:
According to the greatness those that are appointed to death;
79:12And render unto our neighbors sevenfold into their bosom
Their reproach, wherewith they have reproached thee, O Lord.
Will give thee thanks for ever:
We will show forth thy praise to all generations.
