Bible: Psalm 79:6-13
79:6 Pour out your anger on the nations that do not acknowledge you, 1
on the kingdoms that do not pray to you! 2
79:7 For they have devoured Jacob
and destroyed his home.
79:8 Do not hold us accountable for the sins of earlier generations! 3
Quickly send your compassion our way, 4
for we are in serious trouble! 5
79:9 Help us, O God, our deliverer!
For the sake of your glorious reputation, 6 rescue us!
Forgive our sins for the sake of your reputation! 7
79:10 Why should the nations say, “Where is their God?”
Before our very eyes may the shed blood of your servants
be avenged among the nations! 8
79:11 Listen to the painful cries of the prisoners! 9
Use your great strength to set free those condemned to die! 10
79:12 Pay back our neighbors in full! 11
May they be insulted the same way they insulted you, O Lord! 12
79:13 Then we, your people, the sheep of your pasture,
will continually thank you. 13
We will tell coming generations of your praiseworthy acts. 14
