And my soul is greatly dismayed; But You, O LORD--how long?
How long, O LORD? Will You forget me forever? How long will You hide Your face from me?
Lord, how long will You look on? Rescue my soul from their ravages, My only life from the lions.
How long, O LORD? Will You be angry forever? Will Your jealousy burn like fire?
How long, O LORD? Will You hide Yourself forever? Will Your wrath burn like fire?
How long shall the wicked, O LORD, How long shall the wicked exult?
How long, O LORD, will I call for help, And You will not hear? I cry out to You, "Violence!" Yet You do not save.
Then the angel of the LORD said, "O LORD of hosts, how long will You have no compassion for Jerusalem and the cities of Judah, with which You have been indignant these seventy years?"
