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.
