Psalms 79

The psalmist complaineth of the desolation of Jerusalem.

Psalms 79:1 {A psalme of Asaph.} O God, the heathen are come into thine, inheritance, thy holy temple haue they defiled: they haue layd Ierusalem on heapes. Psalms 79:2 The dead bodies of thy seruants haue they giuen [to bee] meate vnto the foules of the heauen: the flesh of thy Saints vnto the beasts of the earth. Psalms 79:3 Their blood haue they shed like water round about Ierusalem: and [there was] none to burie [them]. Psalms 79:4 We are become a reproach to our neighbours: a scorne and derision to them that are round about vs. Psalms 79:5 How long, LORD, wilt thou be angry, for euer? shall thy ielousie burne like fire? Psalms 79:6 Powre out thy wrath vpon the heathen that haue not knowen thee, and vpon the kingdomes that haue not called vpon thy name. Psalms 79:7 For they haue deuoured Iacob: and laid waste his dwelling place.

He prayeth for deliverance,

Psalms 79:8 O remember not against vs former iniquities, let thy tender mercies speedily preuent vs: for we are brought very low. Psalms 79:9 Helpe vs, O God of our saluation, for the glory of thy Name: and deliuer vs, and purge away our sinnes for thy Names sake. Psalms 79:10 Wherfore should the heathen say, Where [is] their God? let him be knowen among the heathen in our sight [by] the reuenging of the blood of thy seruants which is shed. Psalms 79:11 Let the sighing of the prisoner come before thee, according to the greatnesse of thy power: preserue thou those that are appointed to die. Psalms 79:12 And render vnto our neighbours seuen fold into their bosome, their reproach wherewith they haue reproched thee, O Lord.

and promiseth thankfulness.

Psalms 79:13 So we thy people and sheepe of thy pasture, will giue thee thankes for euer: we will shew forth thy praise to all generations.
