Pour out your wrath(A) on the nations
    that do not acknowledge(B) you,
on the kingdoms
    that do not call on your name;(C)
for they have devoured(D) Jacob
    and devastated his homeland.

Do not hold against us the sins of past generations;(E)
    may your mercy come quickly to meet us,
    for we are in desperate need.(F)
Help us,(G) God our Savior,
    for the glory of your name;
deliver us and forgive our sins
    for your name’s sake.(H)
10 Why should the nations say,
    “Where is their God?”(I)

Before our eyes, make known among the nations
    that you avenge(J) the outpoured blood(K) of your servants.
11 May the groans of the prisoners come before you;
    with your strong arm preserve those condemned to die.
12 Pay back into the laps(L) of our neighbors seven times(M)
    the contempt they have hurled at you, Lord.
13 Then we your people, the sheep of your pasture,(N)
    will praise you forever;(O)
from generation to generation
    we will proclaim your praise.
