NLT 1 O God, why have you rejected us so long? Why is your anger so intense against the sheep of your own pasture? NIV 1 Why have you rejected us forever, O God? Why does your anger smolder against the sheep of your pasture? NLT 2 Remember that we are the people you chose long ago, the tribe you redeemed as your own special possession! And remember Jerusalem, your home here on earth. NIV 2 Remember the people you purchased of old, the tribe of your inheritance, whom you redeemed-- Mount Zion, where you dwelt. NLT 3 Walk through the awful ruins of the city; see how the enemy has destroyed your sanctuary. NIV 3 Turn your steps toward these everlasting ruins, all this destruction the enemy has brought on the sanctuary.

NIV 4 Your foes roared in the place where you met with us; they set up their standards as signs. NLT 5 They swung their axes like woodcutters in a forest. NIV 5 They behaved like men wielding axes to cut through a thicket of trees. NLT 6 With axes and picks, they smashed the carved paneling.

NIV 7 They burned your sanctuary to the ground; they defiled the dwelling place of your Name. NLT 8 Then they thought, “Let’s destroy everything!” So they burned down all the places where God was worshiped. NIV 8 They said in their hearts, "We will crush them completely!" They burned every place where God was worshiped in the land. NLT 9 We no longer see your miraculous signs. All the prophets are gone, and no one can tell us when it will end. NIV 9 We are given no miraculous signs; no prophets are left, and none of us knows how long this will be. NLT 10 How long, O God, will you allow our enemies to insult you? Will you let them dishonor your name forever? NIV 10 How long will the enemy mock you, O God? Will the foe revile your name forever? NLT 11 Why do you hold back your strong right hand? Unleash your powerful fist and destroy them. NIV 11 Why do you hold back your hand, your right hand? Take it from the folds of your garment and destroy them! NLT 12 You, O God, are my king from ages past, bringing salvation to the earth. NIV 12 But you, O God, are my king from of old; you bring salvation upon the earth. NLT 13 You split the sea by your strength and smashed the heads of the sea monsters. NIV 13 It was you who split open the sea by your power; you broke the heads of the monster in the waters. NLT 14 You crushed the heads of Leviathan and let the desert animals eat him. NIV 14 It was you who crushed the heads of Leviathan and gave him as food to the creatures of the desert. NLT 15 You caused the springs and streams to gush forth, and you dried up rivers that never run dry. NIV 15 It was you who opened up springs and streams; you dried up the ever flowing rivers. NLT 16 Both day and night belong to you; you made the starlight and the sun. NIV 16 The day is yours, and yours also the night; you established the sun and moon. NLT 17 You set the boundaries of the earth, and you made both summer and winter. NIV 17 It was you who set all the boundaries of the earth; you made both summer and winter.

NIV 19 Do not hand over the life of your dove to wild beasts; do not forget the lives of your afflicted people forever. NLT 20 Remember your covenant promises, for the land is full of darkness and violence! NIV 20 Have regard for your covenant, because haunts of violence fill the dark places of the land. NLT 21 Don’t let the downtrodden be humiliated again. Instead, let the poor and needy praise your name. NIV 21 Do not let the oppressed retreat in disgrace; may the poor and needy praise your name. NLT 22 Arise, O God, and defend your cause. Remember how these fools insult you all day long. NIV 22 Rise up, O God, and defend your cause; remember how fools mock you all day long. NLT 23 Don’t overlook what your enemies have said or their growing uproar. NIV 23 Do not ignore the clamor of your adversaries, the uproar of your enemies, which rises continually.
