O God, the 1nations have ainvaded2Your inheritance ; They have defiled Your 3holytemple ; They have 4laidJerusalem in ruins.
They have given the 5deadbodies of Your servants for food to the birds of the heavens, The flesh of Your godlyones to the beasts of the earth.
They have poured out their blood like waterroundaboutJerusalem ; And there was 6noone to bury them.
We havebecome a 7reproach to our neighbors, A scoffing and derision to those around us.
58Howlong, O LORD ? Will You be angryforever ? Will Your 9jealousy10burnlikefire ?
611Pour out Your wrath upon the nationswhich12do not know You, And upon the kingdomswhich13do not call upon Your name.
For they have 14devouredJacob And 15laidwaste his bhabitation.
816Do not remembercthe iniquities of our forefathers against us; Let Your compassioncomequickly to 17meet us, For we are 18broughtverylow.
919Help us, O God of our salvation, for the glory of 20Your name ; And deliver us and d21forgive our sins22for Your name'ssake.
1023Why should the nationssay, "Where is their God ?" Let there be known among the nations in our sight, 24Vengeance for the blood of Your servants which has been shed.
Let 25the groaning of the prisonercomebefore You; According to the greatness of Your epowerpreservefthosewho are 26doomed to die.
And return to our neighbors27sevenfold28into their bosomgThe 29reproach with which they have reproached You, O Lord.
So we Your people and the 30sheep of Your hpasture Will 31givethanks to You forever ; To allgenerations we will 32tell of Your praise.
