Do not hold against us the sins of the fathers;1 may your mercy come quickly to meet us, for we are in desperate need.29
Help us,3 O God our Savior, for the glory of your name; deliver us and forgive our sins for your name's sake.410
Why should the nations say, "Where is their God?"5 Before our eyes, make known among the nations that you avenge6 the outpoured blood7 of your servants.
May the groans of the prisoners come before you; by the strength of your arm preserve those condemned to die.
Pay back into the laps8 of our neighbors seven times9 the reproach they have hurled at you, O Lord.
Then we your people, the sheep of your pasture,10 will praise you forever;11 from generation to generation we will recount your praise.
