If we had forgotten the name of our God, or had spread out our hands [in prayer] to a foreign god, would not God discover this, for he knows [the] secrets of [the] heart?

Your enemies have roared in the midst of your meeting place; they have set up their signs [for] signs. They are known [to be] like [those who] {wield} axes in a thicket of trees.

They have said in their heart, "We will completely oppress them." They burned all the meeting places of God in the land. We do not see our signs, and there is no longer a prophet. No one with us knows how long. How long, O God, will [the] adversary taunt? Will [the] enemy treat your name with contempt forever? Why do you draw back your hand, even your right hand? [Take it] from your bosom; destroy [them]! But God [has been] my king from long ago, working salvation in the midst of the earth. You split open [the] sea by your strength; You broke [the] heads of [the] sea monsters in the waters. You crushed the heads of Leviathan; you gave him [as] food to [the] desert dwelling creatures.

You defined all [the] boundaries of [the] earth; Summer and winter--you formed them. O Yahweh, remember this: [the] enemy taunts, and foolish people treat your name with contempt. Do not give to beasts the life of your dove; do not ever forget the life of your afflicted ones. Have regard for the covenant, because [the] dark places of [the] land are full of [the] haunts of violence. Do not let [the] oppressed turn back humiliated; let [the] poor and needy praise your name. Rise up, O God, plead your cause; remember the reproaching of you by [the] foolish {all day long}. Do not forget the sound of your adversaries, the roar of those rising up against you ascending continually.

They have poured out their blood like water all around Jerusalem, and there was none to bury [them].read more.

"Thus says all the congregation of Yahweh: 'What [is] this treachery that you have committed against the God of Israel by turning away today from following Yahweh, by building for yourselves an altar to rebel today against Yahweh? [Is] not the sin of Peor {enough for us}, from which we have not cleansed ourselves today, and for which a plague came to the congregation of Yahweh, that you must turn today from following Yahweh? [If] you rebel today against Yahweh, tomorrow he will be angry with all of the congregation of Israel; if, however, the land of your property [is] unclean, cross [over] to the land of Yahweh's property, where Yahweh's tabernacle resides, and take possession among us. But you must not rebel against Yahweh or against us by building for yourselves an altar other than the altar of Yahweh our God. Did not Achan son of Zerah commit treachery with devoted things, and wrath fell on all the congregation of Israel? {And he alone} did not perish because of his iniquity.'" And the descendants of Reuben, Gad, and the half-tribe of Manasseh spoke with the heads of the clans of Israel, "Yahweh, God of gods! Yahweh, God of gods knows. And let Israel itself know, if [it was] in rebellion or treachery against Yahweh, do not spare us this day for building for ourselves an altar to turn away from Yahweh, or if [it was] to offer burnt offerings, grain offerings, or fellowship offerings on it, may Yahweh himself take vengeance. But in fact, we have done this because of anxiety, because of a reason, saying, 'In the future your children may say to our children, '{What is the relationship between you and Yahweh the God of Israel}? Yahweh has made the Jordan a border between us and you, the descendants of Reuben and Gad; you have no portion in Yahweh.' So your children may put an end to our children worshiping Yahweh. So we said, 'Let us build immediately for ourselves an altar, not for burnt offerings or for sacrifices; instead, it [is] a witness between us and you, and between our generations after us for performing the serving of Yahweh in his presence with our burnt offerings, sacrifices, and fellowship offerings; so that your children may not say in the future to our children, "You have no portion in Yahweh." ' And we thought, if they say to us and to our children in the future, we can say, 'Look at this replica of the altar of Yahweh, which our ancestors made, not for burnt offerings or sacrifices; rather, it [is] a witness between us and you.' Far be it from us to rebel against Yahweh, to turn today from following Yahweh, to build an altar for burnt offerings, grain offerings, or sacrifices, instead of the altar of Yahweh our God that [is] before his tabernacle." Phinehas the priest, the leaders of the congregation, and the heads of the clans of Israel who [were] with him heard the words that the descendants of Reuben, Gad, and Manasseh spoke, and {they were satisfied}. Phinehas the priest, son of Eleazar, said to the descendants of Reuben, Gad, and Manasseh, "Today we know that Yahweh [is] among us, because you have not committed this treachery against Yahweh. Therefore you have rescued the {Israelites} from the hand of Yahweh." And Phinehas the priest, son of Eleazar, and the leaders returned from the descendants of Reuben and Gad, from the land of Gilead, to the land of Canaan to the {Israelites}, and {they gave them their report}. {The report satisfied the Israelites}; they blessed God, and they did not speak of going up for battle against them to destroy the land in which the descendants of Reuben and Gad were living. The descendants of Reuben and Gad called the altar Witness, "Because," [they said], "it [is] a witness between us that Yahweh [is] God."
