1 O God, why hast thou acast us off for ever?
2 Remember thy congregation, which dthou hast purchased of old;
This mount Zion, wherein thou hast dwelt.
3 Lift up thy feet unto the perpetual hdesolations;
Even iall that the enemy hath done wickedly in the sanctuary.
kThey set up their ensigns for signs.
Axes upon the thick trees.
6 But now they break down lthe carved work thereof
At once with axes and hammers.
They have burned up all the jsynagogues of God in the land.
9 We see not our ksigns:
qThere is no more any prophet:
Neither is there among us any that knoweth rhow long.
Shall the enemy sblaspheme thy name for ever?
11 Why twithdrawest thou thy hand, even thy right hand?
Pluck it out of thy bosom.
12 For uGod is my King of old,
Working salvation in the midst of the earth.
14 Thou brakest the heads of zleviathan in pieces,
Thou hast prepared fthe light and the sun.
17 Thou hast gset all the borders of the earth:
Forget not the ocongregation of thy poor for ever.
20 Have respect unto pthe covenant:
21 O let not sthe oppressed return ashamed:
Let tthe poor and needy praise thy name.
22 Arise, O God, uplead thine own cause:
iRemember how the foolish man reproacheth thee daily.
