Your foes have (A)roared in the midst of your meeting place;
    (B)they set up their (C)own signs for (D)signs.
They were like those who swing (E)axes
    in a forest of trees.[a]
And all its (F)carved wood
    they broke down with hatchets and hammers.
They (G)set your sanctuary on fire;
    they (H)profaned (I)the dwelling place of your name,
    bringing it down to the ground.
They (J)said to themselves, “We will utterly subdue them”;
    they burned all the meeting places of God in the land.
