The third book of Psalms, song 79, Vulgate and King James Version

Psalm 79


   1 PSALMUS. Asaph. Deus, venerunt gentes in hereditatem tuam, polluerunt templum sanctum tuum, posuerunt Ierusalem in ruinas.
   2 Dederunt morticina servorum tuorum escas volatilibus caeli, carnes sanctorum tuorum bestiis terrae.
   3 Effuderunt sanguinem eorum tamquam aquam in circuitu Ierusalem, et non erat qui sepeliret.
   4 Facti sumus opprobrium vicinis nostris, subsannatio et illusio his, qui in circuitu nostro sunt.
   5 Usquequo, Domine? Irasceris in finem? Accendetur velut ignis zelus tuus?
   6 Effunde iram tuam in gentes, quae te non noverunt, et in regna, quae nomen tuum non invocaverunt,
   7 quia comederunt Iacob et sedem eius desolaverunt.
   8 Ne memineris iniquitatum patrum nostrorum, cito anticipent nos misericordiae tuae, quia pauperes facti sumus nimis.
   9 Adiuva nos, Deus salutaris nostri, propter gloriam nominis tui et libera nos; et propitius esto peccatis nostris propter nomen tuum.
   10 Quare dicent in gentibus: "Ubi est Deus eorum?". Innotescat in nationibus coram oculis nostris ultio sanguinis servorum tuorum, qui effusus est.
   11 Introeat in conspectu tuo gemitus compeditorum; secundum magnitudinem brachii tui superstites relinque filios mortis.
   12 Et redde vicinis nostris septuplum in sinu eorum, improperium ipsorum, quod exprobraverunt tibi, Domine.
   13 Nos autem, populus tuus et oves pascuae tuae, confitebimur tibi in saeculum; in generationem et generationem annuntiabimus laudem tuam.

King James Version

   A Psalm of Asaph.
   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 thy servants have they given to be meat unto the fowls of the heaven, the flesh of thy 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 their 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 thy people and sheep of thy pasture will give thee thanks for ever: we will shew forth thy praise to all generations.
