Psalms 79:1 {The title of the eiyte and seuentithe salm. Of Asaph.} God, hethene men cam in to thin eritage; thei defouliden thin hooli temple, thei settiden Jerusalem in to the keping of applis. Psalms 79:2 Thei settiden the slayn bodies of thi seruauntis, meetis to the volatilis of heuenes; the fleischis of thi seyntis to the beestis of the erthe. Psalms 79:3 Thei schedden out the blood of hem, as watir in the cumpas of Jerusalem; and noon was that biriede. Psalms 79:4 We ben maad schenschipe to oure neiyboris; mowynge and scornynge to hem, that ben in oure cumpas. Psalms 79:5 Lord, hou longe schalt thou be wrooth in to the ende? schal thi veniaunce be kyndelid as fier? Psalms 79:6 Schede out thin ire in to hethene men, that knowen not thee; and in to rewmes, that clepiden not thi name. Psalms 79:7 For thei eeten Jacob; and maden desolat his place.

and promiseth thankfulness.
