   1: (A Psalm by Asaph.) God, the nations have come into your inheritance. They have defiled your holy temple. They have laid Jerusalem in heaps.
   2: They have given the dead bodies of your servants to be food for the birds of the sky, The flesh of your saints to the animals of the earth.
   3: Their blood they have shed like water around Jerusalem. There was no one to bury them.
   4: We have become a reproach to our neighbors, A scoffing and derision to those who are around us.
   5: How long, Yahweh? Will you be angry forever? Will your jealousy burn like fire?
   6: Pour out your wrath on the nations that don't know you; On the kingdoms that don't call on your names;
   7: For they have devoured Jacob, And destroyed his homeland.
   8: Don't hold the iniquities of our forefathers against us. Let your tender mercies speedily meet us, For we are in desperate need.
   9: Help us, God of our salvation, for the glory of your name. Deliver us, and forgive our sins, for your name's sake.
   10: Why should the nations say, "Where is their God?" Let it be known among the nations, before our eyes, That vengeance for your servants' blood is being poured out.
   11: Let the sighing of the prisoner come before you. According to the greatness of your power, preserve those who are sentenced to death;
   12: Pay back to our neighbors seven times into their bosom Their reproach with which they have reproached you, Lord.
   13: So we, your people and sheep of your pasture, Will give you thanks forever. We will praise you forever, to all generations.
