151Lookdown from heaven and see from Your holy and glorious2habitation ; Where are Your 3zeal and Your mightydeeds ? The 4stirrings of Your heart and Your compassion are restrainedtoward me.
For You are our 5Father, though6Abraham does not know us And Israel does not recognize us. You, O LORD, are our Father, Our 7Redeemer from of old is Your name.
17Why, O LORD, do You 8cause us to stray from Your ways And 9harden our heart from fearing You? 10Return for the sake of Your servants, the tribes of Your heritage.
Your holypeoplepossessed Your sanctuary for a littlewhile, Our adversaries have 11trodden it down.
We have become like those over whom You have neverruled, Like those who were not called by Your name.
