Faith amid Confusion
A psalm of Asaph. #1Ch 16:5
1God, the nations have invaded Your inheritance,
desecrated Your holy temple,
and turned Jerusalem into ruins. #Jr 26:18Lm 1:10Mc 3:12
2They gave the corpses of Your servants
to the birds of the sky for food,
the flesh of Your godly ones
to the beasts of the earth. #Dt 28:26Jr 7:33|NoBook| 16:4
3They poured out their blood
like water all around Jerusalem,
and there was no one to bury them. #Jr 14:16|NoBook| 16:4|NoBook| 22:19
4We have become an object of reproach
to our neighbors,
a source of mockery and ridicule
to those around us. #Ps 44:13-14|NoBook| 80:6Dn 9:16
5How long, Yahweh? Will You be angry forever?
Will Your jealousy keep burning like fire? #Ps 74:10|NoBook| 78:58|NoBook| 80:4
6Pour out Your wrath on the nations
that don’t acknowledge You,
on the kingdoms that don’t call on Your name, #Ps 14:4Jr 10:25
7for they have devoured Jacob
and devastated his homeland. #Ps 53:4
8Do not hold past sins # Or hold the sins of past generations against us;
let Your compassion come to us quickly,
for we have become weak. #Ps 142:6Is 64:9
9God of our salvation, help us #1Ch 16:35Ps 85:4
for the glory of Your name.
Deliver us and atone for # Or and wipe out, or and forgive our sins,
because of Your name. #Ps 25:11|NoBook| 106:8Jr 14:7
10Why should the nations ask,
“Where is their God? ” #Ps 42:3|NoBook| 115:2
Before our eyes,
let vengeance for the shed blood of Your servants
be known among the nations. #Dt 32:43Ps 94:1-2Jr 46:10
11Let the groans of the prisoners reach You;
according to Your great power,
preserve those condemned to die. #Ps 102:20
12Pay back sevenfold to our neighbors #Lv 26:21
the reproach they have hurled at You, Lord. #Ps 74:10
13Then we, Your people, the sheep of Your pasture, #Ps 74:1|NoBook| 100:3
will thank You forever;
we will declare Your praise
to generation after generation. #Ps 89:1Is 43:21
