Psalm 79

Deus, venerunt
O God, the heathen are come into thine inheritance  *
thy holy temple have they defiled, and made Jerusalem an heap of stones.
The dead bodies of thy servants have they given to be meat unto the fowls of the air *
and the flesh of thy saints unto the beasts of the land.
Their blood have they shed like water on every side of Jerusalem *
and there was no man to bury them.
We are become an open shame to our enemies *
a very scorn and derision unto them that are round about us.
Lord, how long wilt thou be angry *
shall thy jealousy burn like fire for ever?
Pour out thine indignation upon the heathen that have not known thee *
and upon the kingdoms that have not called upon thy Name.
For they have devoured Jacob *
and laid waste his dwelling-place.
O remember not our old sins, but have mercy upon us, and that soon *
for we are come to great misery.
Help us, O God of our salvation, for the glory of thy Name *
O deliver us, and be merciful unto our sins, for thy Name’s sake.
Wherefore do the heathen say *
Where is now their God?
O let the vengeance of thy servants’ blood that is shed *
be openly shewed upon the heathen in our sight.
O let the sorrowful sighing of the prisoners come before thee *
according to the greatness of thy power, preserve thou those that are appointed to die.
And for the blasphemy wherewith our neighbours have blasphemed thee *
reward thou them , O Lord, seven-fold into their bosom.
So we, that are thy people, and sheep of thy pasture, shall give thee thanks for ever *
and will alway be shewing forth thy praise from generation to generation.

Psalm 82

Deus stetit
God standeth in the congregation of princes  *
he is a Judge among gods.
How long will ye give wrong judgement *
and accept the persons of the ungodly?
Defend the poor and fatherless *
see that such as are in need and necessity have right.
Deliver the outcast and poor *
save them from the hand of the ungodly.
They will not be learned nor understand, but walk on still in darkness *
all the foundations of the earth are out of course.
I have said, Ye are gods *
and ye are all the children of the most Highest.
But ye shall die like men *
and fall like one of the princes.
Arise, O God, and judge thou the earth *
for thou shalt take all heathen to thine inheritance.
