1[Psalm Of Asaph] God, the pagans have invaded your heritage, they have defiled your holy temple,they have laid Jerusalem in ruins, 2they have left the corpses of your servants as food for the birds of the air, the bodies of your faithful forthe wild beasts. 3Around Jerusalem they have shed blood like water, leaving no one to bury them. 4We are the scorn of our neighbours, the butt and laughing-stock of those around us. 5How long will you be angry, Yahweh? For ever? Is your jealousy to go on smouldering like a fire? 6Pour out your anger on the nations who do not acknowledge you, and on the kingdoms that do not callon your name; 7for they have devoured Jacob and devastated his home. 8Do not count against us the guilt of former generations, in your tenderness come quickly to meet us,for we are utterly weakened; 9help us, God our Saviour, for the glory of your name; Yahweh, wipe away our sins, rescue us for thesake of your name. 10Why should the nations ask, 'Where is their God?' Let us see the nations suffer vengeance forshedding your servants' blood. 11May the groans of the captive reach you, by your great strength save those who are condemned todeath! 12Repay our neighbours sevenfold for the insults they have level ed at you, Lord. 13And we, your people, the flock that you pasture, will thank you for ever, wil recite your praises fromage to age.
