Psalm 79; Psalm 80; Romans 11:1-18

1 God, the nations have invaded Your inheritance, desecrated Your holy temple, and turned Jerusalem into ruins. 2 They gave the corpses of Your servants to the birds of the sky for food, the flesh of Your godly ones to the beasts of the earth. 3 They poured out their blood like water all around Jerusalem, and there was no one to bury [them]. 4 We have become an object of reproach to our neighbors, a source of mockery and ridicule to those around us. 5 How long, Lord? Will You be angry forever? Will Your jealousy keep burning like fire? 6 Pour out Your wrath on the nations that don't acknowledge You, on the kingdoms that don't call on Your name, 7 for they have devoured Jacob and devastated his homeland. 8 Do not hold past sins against us; let Your compassion come to us quickly, for we have become weak. 9 God of our salvation, help us- for the glory of Your name. Deliver us and atone for our sins, because of Your name. 10 Why should the nations ask, "Where is their God?" Before our eyes, let vengeance for the shed blood of Your servants be known among the nations. 11 Let the groans of the prisoners reach You; according to Your great power, preserve those condemned to die. 12 Pay back sevenfold to our neighbors the reproach they have hurled at You, Lord. 13 Then we, Your people, the sheep of Your pasture, will thank You forever; we will declare Your praise to generation after generation.
1 Listen, Shepherd of Israel, who guides Joseph like a flock; You who sit enthroned [on] the cherubim, rise up 2 at the head of Ephraim, Benjamin, and Manasseh. Rally Your power and come to save us. 3 Restore us, God; look [on us] with favor, and we will be saved. 4 Lord God of Hosts, how long will You be angry with Your people's prayers? 5 You fed them the bread of tears and gave them a full measure of tears to drink. 6 You set us at strife with our neighbors; our enemies make fun of us. 7 Restore us, God of Hosts; look [on us] with favor, and we will be saved. 8 You uprooted a vine from Egypt; You drove out the nations and planted it. 9 You cleared [a place] for it; it took root and filled the land. 10 The mountains were covered by its shade, and the mighty cedars with its branches. 11 It sent out sprouts toward the Sea and shoots toward the River. 12 Why have You broken down its walls so that all who pass by pick its fruit? 13 The boar from the forest gnaws at it, and creatures of the field feed on it. 14 Return, God of Hosts. Look down from heaven and see; take care of this vine, 15 the root Your right hand has planted, the shoot that You made strong for Yourself. 16 It was cut down and burned up; they perish at the rebuke of Your countenance. 17 Let Your hand be with the man at Your right hand, with the son of man You have made strong for Yourself. 18 Then we will not turn away from You; revive us, and we will call on Your name. 19 Restore us, Lord God of Hosts; look [on us] with favor, and we will be saved.
1 I ask, then, has God rejected His people? Absolutely not! For I too am an Israelite, a descendant of Abraham, from the tribe of Benjamin. 2 God has not rejected His people whom He foreknew. Or do you not know what the Scripture says in the Elijah section-how he pleads with God against Israel? 3 Lord, they have killed Your prophets, torn down Your altars; and I am the only one left, and they are trying to take my life! 4 But what was God's reply to him? I have left 7,000 men for Myself who have not bowed down to Baal. 5 In the same way, then, there is also at the present time a remnant chosen by grace. 6 Now if by grace, then it is not by works; otherwise grace ceases to be grace. 7 What then? Israel did not find what it was looking for, but the elect did find it. The rest were hardened, 8 as it is written: God gave them a spirit of stupor, eyes that cannot see and ears that cannot hear, to this day . 9 And David says: Let their feasting become a snare and a trap, a pitfall and a retribution to them. 10 Let their eyes be darkened so they cannot see, and their backs be bent continually. 11 I ask, then, have they stumbled so as to fall? Absolutely not! On the contrary, by their stumbling, salvation has come to the Gentiles to make Israel jealous. 12 Now if their stumbling brings riches for the world, and their failure riches for the Gentiles, how much more will their full number bring! 13 Now I am speaking to you Gentiles. In view of the fact that I am an apostle to the Gentiles, I magnify my ministry, 14 if I can somehow make my own people jealous and save some of them. 15 For if their being rejected is world reconciliation, what will their acceptance mean but life from the dead? 16 Now if the firstfruits offered up are holy, so is the whole batch. And if the root is holy, so are the branches. 17 Now if some of the branches were broken off, and you, though a wild olive branch, were grafted in among them, and have come to share in the rich root of the cultivated olive tree, 18 do not brag that you are better than those branches. But if you do brag-you do not sustain the root, but the root sustains you.
