Destroy, O Lord, and divide their tongue; For I have seen violence and strife in the city.
Pour out thy wrath upon the nations that know thee not, and upon the families that call not on thy name: for they have devoured Jacob, yea, they have devoured him and consumed him, and have laid waste his habitation.
Give heed to me, O Jehovah, and hearken to the voice of them that contend with me.
