Psalms 79

The psalmist complaineth of the desolation of Jerusalem.

Psalms 79:1 {A Psalme of Asaph.} O God, the Heathen are fallen into thyne heritage: the holy temple haue they defiled, and made Ierusalem an heape of stones. Psalms 79:2 The deade bodye of thy seruauntes haue they geuen vnto the foules of þe ayre to be deuoured, and the flesh of thy saintes vnto the beastes of the lande. Psalms 79:3 Their bloude haue they shed lyke water on euery syde of Ierusalem, and ther was no man to bury them. Psalms 79:4 We are become an open shame vnto oure enemyes, a verye scorne and derysyon vnto them that are rounde aboute vs. Psalms 79:5 Lorde, howe longe wylt thou be angrye? shall thy ielousy burne lyke fyre for euer? Psalms 79:6 Poure oute thyne indignacyon vpon the Heathen that knowe the not, and vpon the Kyngdomes that call not vpon thy name. Psalms 79:7 For they haue deuoured Iacob, and laied wast his dwellynge place.

He prayeth for deliverance,

Psalms 79:8 O remembre not oure olde synnes, but haue mercye vpon vs, and that soone, for we are come to greate mysery. Psalms 79:9 Helpe, vs, O God oure sauyoure, for the glory of thy name: O deliuer vs, and forgeue vs oure synnes for thy names sake. Psalms 79:10 Wherfore shall the Heathen say: wher is now their God? O lette the vengeaunce of thy seruauntes bloude that is shed, be openly shewed vpon the Heathen in our syght. Psalms 79:11 O Let the sorowfull sighehyng of the presoners come before the, and accordinge vnto the power of thyne arme, preserue those that are appoynted to dye. Psalms 79:12 And for the blasphemye wherewyth oure neyghboures haue blasphemed the, rewarde them, O Lorde, seenu folde into theyr bosome.

and promiseth thankfulness.

Psalms 79:13 So we that be the people and shepe of thy pasture, shall geue the thanckes for euer, and wyll all waye be shewynge forth thy prayse more and more.
