An Appeal against the Devastation of the Land by the Enemy.1 O God, why have You b rejected us forever?
Why does Your anger c smoke against the d sheep of Your ▼
▼ Or pasturingpasture?
2Remember Your congregation, which You have f purchased of old,
Which You have g redeemed to be the h tribe of Your inheritance;
And this Mount i Zion, where You have dwelt.
▼ Lit Lift upTurn Your footsteps toward the k perpetual ruins;
The enemy l has damaged everything within the sanctuary.
4Your adversaries have m roared in the midst of Your meeting place;
They have set up their n own ▼
▼ Lit signsstandards p for signs.
5It seems as if one had lifted up
▼ Lit axes, r axe in a ▼
▼ Lit thicketforest of trees.
6And now ▼
▼ Lit altogetherall its u carved work
They smash with hatchet and ▼
▼ Or axeshammers.
7They have ▼
▼ Lit set on fire, x burned Your sanctuary ▼
▼ Or To the ground they...to the ground;
They have z defiled the dwelling place of Your name.
8They aa said in their heart, “Let us ▼
▼ Lit altogethercompletely ▼
▼ Or oppresssubdue them.”
They have burned all the meeting places of God in the land.
9We do not see our ad signs;
There is ae no longer any prophet,
Nor is there any among us who knows af how long.
10How long, O God, will the adversary ag revile,
And the enemy ah spurn Your name forever?
11Why ai do You withdraw Your hand, even Your right hand?
From within Your bosom aj destroy them!
12Yet God is ak my king from of old,
Who works deeds of deliverance in the midst of the earth.
13 ▼You am divided the sea by Your strength;
▼You ao broke the heads of the ap sea monsters ▼
▼ Lit onin the waters.
14 ▼You crushed the heads of ▼
▼ Or sea monster, at Leviathan;
▼You gave him as food for the ▼
▼ Lit peoplecreatures aw of the wilderness.
15 ▼You ay broke open springs and torrents;
▼You ba dried up ever-flowing streams.
16Yours is the day, Yours also is the night;
▼You have bc prepared the ▼
▼ Or luminarylight and the sun.
17 ▼You have bf established all the boundaries of the earth;
▼You have ▼
▼ Or formedmade bi summer and winter.
18Remember this ▼
▼ Or that the enemy has reviled the LordO Lord, that the enemy has bk reviled,
And a bl foolish people has spurned Your name.
19Do not deliver the soul of Your bm turtledove to the wild beast;
bn Do not forget the life of Your afflicted forever.
20Consider the bo covenant;
For the bp dark places of the land are full of the habitations of violence.
21Let not the bq oppressed return dishonored;
Let the br afflicted and needy praise Your name.
22Arise, O God, and bs plead Your own cause;
▼ Lit Your reproach from the foolish manhow the bu foolish man reproaches You all day long.
23Do not forget the voice of Your bv adversaries,
The bw uproar of those who rise against You which ascends continually.
