NASB — Psalms 79 — KJV

A Lament over the Destruction of Jerusalem, and Prayer for Help.

A Psalm of Asaph.

  1 O God, the anations have Iinvaded bYour inheritance;
  They have defiled Your choly temple;
  They have dlaid Jerusalem in ruins.
  2 They have given the adead bodies of Your servants for food to the birds of the heavens,
  The flesh of Your godly ones to the beasts of the earth.
  3 They have poured out their blood like water round about Jerusalem;
  And there was ano one to bury them.
  4 We have become a areproach to our neighbors,
  A scoffing and derision to those around us.
  5 aHow long, O LORD? Will You be angry forever?
  Will Your bjealousy cburn like fire?
  6 aPour out Your wrath upon the nations which bdo not know You,
  And upon the kingdoms which cdo not call upon Your name.
  7 For they have adevoured Jacob
  And blaid waste his Ihabitation.

The psalmist complaineth of the desolation of Jerusalem.

1 ¶ [[A Psalm of Asaph.]] O God, the heathen are come into thine inheritance; thy holy temple have they defiled; they have laid Jerusalem on heaps. 2 The dead bodies of thy servants have they given [to be] meat unto the fowls of the heaven, the flesh of thy saints unto the beasts of the earth. 3 Their blood have they shed like water round about Jerusalem; and [there was] none to bury [them]. 4 We are become a reproach to our neighbours, a scorn and derision to them that are round about us. 5 How long, LORD? wilt thou be angry for ever? shall thy jealousy burn like fire? 6 Pour out thy wrath upon the heathen that have not known thee, and upon the kingdoms that have not called upon thy name. 7 For they have devoured Jacob, and laid waste his dwelling place.

He prayeth for deliverance,

8 O remember not against us former iniquities: let thy tender mercies speedily prevent us: for we are brought very low. 9 Help us, O God of our salvation, for the glory of thy name: and deliver us, and purge away our sins, for thy name's sake. 10 Wherefore should the heathen say, Where [is] their God? let him be known among the heathen in our sight [by] the revenging of the blood of thy servants [which is] shed. 11 Let the sighing of the prisoner come before thee; according to the greatness of thy power preserve thou those that are appointed to die; 12 And render unto our neighbours sevenfold into their bosom their reproach, wherewith they have reproached thee, O Lord.
