1  O Lord God, the heathen come into thine inheritance: tThy holy temple have they defiled, and made Jerusalem an heap of stones.
4  We are become an open shame to our enemies: a very scorn and derision unto them that are round about us.
5  Lord, how long wilt thou be angry: shall thy jealousy burn like fire for ever?
8a  O remember not, our old sins, but have mercy upon us;
For thou art the Lord our God, and thou, O Lord, will we praise for evermore.
