“We are become a reproach to our neighbours: a scorne and derision to them that are round about vs.”
King James Version (KJV)
1. [A psalme of Asaph.] O God, the heathen are come into thine, inheritance, thy holy temple haue they defiled: they haue layd Ierusalem on heapes. 2. The dead bodies of thy seruants haue they giuen to bee meate vnto the foules of the heauen: the flesh of thy Saints vnto the beasts of the earth. 3. Their blood haue they shed like water round about Ierusalem: and there was none to burie them. 4. We are become a reproach to our neighbours: a scorne and derision to them that are round about vs. 5. How long, Lord, wilt thou be angry, for euer? shall thy ielousie burne like fire? 6. Powre out thy wrath vpon the heathen that haue not knowen thee, and vpon the kingdomes that haue not called vpon thy name. 7. For they haue deuoured Iacob: and laid waste his dwelling place.
