Psalm 79:8-13 and Daniel 9:4b-10
8 Do not remember our iniquities of the past. May your mercies quickly intercept us, for we have become exceedingly poor.
9 Help us, O God, our Savior. And free us, Lord, for the glory of your name. And forgive us our sins for the sake of your name.
10 Let them not say among the Gentiles, "Where is their God?" And may your name become known among the nations before our eyes. For the retribution of your servants' blood, which has been poured out:
11 may the groans of the shackled enter before you. According to the greatness of your arm, take possession of the sons of those who have been killed.
12 And repay our neighbors sevenfold within their sinews. It is the reproach of the same ones who brought reproach against you, O Lord.
13 But we are your people and the sheep of your pasture: we will give thanks to you in all ages. From generation to generation, we will announce your praise.
O Lord God, great and terrible, preserving the covenant and mercy for those who love you and keep your commandments.
5 We have sinned, we have committed iniquity, we acted impiously and have withdrawn, and we have turned aside from your commandments as well as your judgments.
6 We have not obeyed your servants, the prophets, who have spoken in your name to our kings, our leaders, our fathers, and all the people of the land.
7 To you, O Lord, is justice, but to us is confusion of face, just as it is on this day for the men of Judah, and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and all Israel, for those who are near and those who are far off, in all the lands to which you have driven them, because of their iniquities by which they have sinned against you.
8 O Lord, to us belongs confusion of face: to our kings, our leaders, and our fathers, who have sinned.
9 But to you, the Lord our God, is mercy and atonement, for we have withdrawn from you,
10 and we have not listened to the voice of the Lord, our God, so as to walk in his law, which he established for us by his servants, the prophets.
