|Overview - Psalms 79|
|1||The psalmist complains of the desolation of Jerusalem.|
|8||He prays for deliverance;|
|13||and promises thankfulness.|
Psalms 79:3 (King James Version)
Their blood have they shed like water round about Jerusalem; and there was none to bury them.
- 10 ; Matthew 23:35 ; Romans 8:36 ; Revelation 16:6 ; 17:6 18:24
- and there, etc
- Either there was no friend or relation left to bury them, or none was allowed to perform this last sad office. The despotism of eastern princes often proceeds to such a degree of extravagance as to fill the mind with astonishment and horror. In Morocco, no person dares to bury the body of a malefactor without an order from the emperor; and Windus, speaking of a man who was to have been sawn in two, informs us, that "his body must have remained to be eaten by the dogs, if the emperor had not pardoned him."
