SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY PSALM 79: 1-13 (LIFE IS NOT FAIR, BUT GOD IS)

sad-man

O God, your land has been conquered by the heathen nations. Your Temple is defiled, and Jerusalem is a heap of ruins. The bodies of your people lie exposed-food for birds and animals. The enemy has butchered the entire population of Jerusalem; blood has flowed like water. No one is left even to bury them. The nation all around us scoff. They heap contempt on us.

O Jehovah, how long will you be anger with us? Forever? Will your jealousy burn till every hope is gone? pour out your wrath upon the godless nations-not on us-on kingdoms that refuse to pray, that will not call upon your name! For they have destroyed your people Israel, invading every home. Oh do not hold us guilty for our former sins! Let your tenderhearted mercies meet our needs, for we are brought low to the dust. Help us, God of our salvation! Help us for the honor of your name. Oh, save us and forgive our sins. Why should the heathen nations be allowed to scoff, “Where is God?” Publicly avenge the slaughter of your people! Listen to the sighing of the prisoners and those condemned to die. Demonstrate the greatness of your power by saving them.  O Lord, take sevenfold vengeance on these nations scorning you.

Then we your people, the sheep of your pasture, will thank you forever and forever, praising your greatness from generation to generation.

  1. O God, the heathen are come into thine inheritance; thy holy temple have they defiled; they have laid Jerusalem on heaps.
  2. The dead bodies of they servants have they given to be meat unto the fowls of the heaven, the flesh of they saints unto the beasts of the earth.
  3. Their blood have they shed like water round about Jerusalem; and there was none to bury them.
  4. We are become a reproach to our neighbours, a scorn and derision to them that are round about us.
  5. How long, LORD? wilt thou be angry for ever? shall thy jealousy burn like fire?
  6. Pour out thy wrath upon the heathen that have not known thee, and upon the kingdoms that have not called upon thy name.
  7. For they have devoured Jacob, and laid waste his dwelling place.
  8. O remember not against us former iniquities:  let  thy  tender  mercies  speedily prevent us: for we are brought very low.
  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.
  10.  Wherefore should the heathen say,  Where is there God?  let him be known among the heathen in our sight by the revenging of the blood of thy servants which is shed.
  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;
  12. And render unto our neighbours sevenfold into their bosom their reproach,  wherewith  they  have  reproached thee, O Lord.
  13. So we they people and sheep of thy pasture will give thee thanks for ever: we will shew forth thy praise to all generations.
