Psalm 79:1-3 Revised Standard Version (RSV)

Plea for Mercy for Jerusalem

A Psalm of Asaph.

79 O God, the heathen have come into thy inheritance;
    they have defiled thy holy temple;
    they have laid Jerusalem in ruins.
They have given the bodies of thy servants
    to the birds of the air for food,
    the flesh of thy saints to the beasts of the earth.
They have poured out their blood like water
    round about Jerusalem,
    and there was none to bury them.
