2 Esdras 6:56-59

56 You said that, in spite of their great numbers, all the other nations which descended from Adam are nothing, worth no more than a drop of water, no more than spit.
57 But now, Lord, those nations that are considered as nothing are ruling over us and destroying us.
58 We are your people, and you have called us your first-born, your only child, your witness, your loved one, but we have been handed over to the power of these other nations.
59 If this world was really created for the sake of your people, why don't we have possession of it? How much longer must we wait?"
