Psalms 79

The psalmist complaineth of the desolation of Jerusalem.

Psalms 79:1 {A Psalm of Asaph.} O God, the heathen have come into thy inheritance; thy holy temple have they defiled; they have laid Jerusalem on heaps. Psalms 79:2 The dead bodies of thy servants have they given [to be] food to the fowls of the heaven, the flesh of thy saints, to the beasts of the earth. Psalms 79:3 Their blood have they shed like water around Jerusalem; and [there was] none to bury [them]. Psalms 79:4 We have become a reproach to our neighbors, a scorn and derision to them that are around us. Psalms 79:5 How long, LORD? wilt thou be angry for ever? shall thy jealousy burn like fire? Psalms 79:6 Pour out thy wrath upon the heathen that have not known thee, and upon the kingdoms that have not called upon thy name. Psalms 79:7 For they have devoured Jacob, and laid waste his dwelling-place.

He prayeth for deliverance,

Psalms 79:8 O remember not against us former iniquities: let thy tender mercies speedily succor us: for we are brought very low. Psalms 79:9 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. Psalms 79:10 Why should the heathen say, Where [is] their God? let him be known among the heathen in our sight [by] avenging the blood of thy servants [which is] shed. Psalms 79:11 Let the sighing of the prisoner come before thee; according to the greatness of thy power preserve thou those that are appointed to die; Psalms 79:12 And render to our neighbors seven-fold into their bosom their reproach, with which they have reproached thee, O Lord.

and promiseth thankfulness.

Psalms 79:13 So we thy people and sheep of thy pasture will give thee thanks for ever: we will show forth thy praise to all generations.
