A Psalm (sacred song about or to God) of Asaph [Gatherer].
1O God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered], the heathen are come into youri inheritance; youri holy temple have they defiled; they have laid Yerushalayim [Foundation Of Peace] on heaps.
2The dead bodies of youri servants have they given [to be] meat unto the fowls of the heaven, the flesh of youri saints unto the beasts of the earth.
3Their blood have they shed like water round about Yerushalayim [Foundation Of Peace]; and [there was] none to bury [them].
4We are become a reproach (disgrace; shame) to our neighbours, a scorn and ridicule (laughing at enemies’ threats) to them that are round about us.
5How long, Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate]? will youi be angry forever? shall youri jealousy burn like fire?
6Pour out youri wrath upon the heathen that have not known youi, and upon the kingdoms that have not called upon youri name.
7For they have devoured Ya’akov [Heel of God], and laid waste his dwelling place.
8O remember not against us former iniquities: let youri tender mercies speedily prevent (come before; go before; anticipate) us: for we are brought very low.
9Help us, O God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] of our salvation, for the glory of youri name: and deliver us, and purge away our sins, for youri name’s sake.
10For what reason should the heathen say, Where [is] their God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered]? let him be known among the heathen in our sight [by] the revenging of the blood of youri servants [which is] shed.
11Let the sighing of the prisoner come before youi; according to the greatness of youri power preserve youi those that are appointed to die;
12And render unto our neighbours sevenfold into their bosom their reproach (disgrace; shame), wherewith they have reproached youi, O Lord-Adonai [Greatest Above All Things].
13So we youri people and sheep of youri pasture will give youi thanks forever: we will show forth youri praise to all generations.
