Psalms 79
New Living Translation
79[A psalm of Asaph.] O God, pagan nations have conquered your land, your special possession. They have defiled your holy Temple and made Jerusalem a heap of ruins.H4210H623H430H1471H935H5159H6944H1964H2930H7760H3389H5856 2They have left the bodies of your servants as food for the birds of heaven. The flesh of your godly ones has become food for the wild animals.H5038H5650H5414H3978H5775H8064H1320H2623H2416H776 3Blood has flowed like water all around Jerusalem; no one is left to bury the dead.H1818H8210H4325H5439H3389H6912 4We are mocked by our neighbors, an object of scorn and derision to those around us.H2781H7934H3933H7047H5439 5O Lord, how long will you be angry with us? Forever? How long will your jealousy burn like fire?H3068H599H5331H7068H1197H784 6Pour out your wrath on the nations that refuse to acknowledge you—on kingdoms that do not call upon your name.H8210H2534H1471H3045H4467H7121H8034 7For they have devoured your people Israel, making the land a desolate wilderness.H398H3290H8074H5116 8Do not hold us guilty for the sins of our ancestors! Let your compassion quickly meet our needs, for we are on the brink of despair.H2142H7223H5771H7356H4118H6923H1809H3966H1809 9Help us, O God of our salvation! Help us for the glory of your name. Save us and forgive our sins for the honor of your name.H5826H430H3468H1697H3519H8034H5337H3722H2403H8034 10Why should pagan nations be allowed to scoff, asking, “Where is their God?” Show us your vengeance against the nations, for they have spilled the blood of your servants.H1471H559H430H3045H1471H5869H5360H1818H5650H8210 11Listen to the moaning of the prisoners. Demonstrate your great power by saving those condemned to die.H603H615H935H6440H1433H2220H3498H1121H8546 12O Lord, pay back our neighbors seven times for the scorn they have hurled at you.H7725H7934H7659H2436H2781H2778H136 13Then we your people, the sheep of your pasture, will thank you forever and ever, praising your greatness from generation to generation.H5971H6629H4830H3034H5769H5608H8416H1755H1755
