“Lift Your footsteps to wreak eternal ruin, to avenge everything that the enemy has harmed in the Sanctuary. Your enemies have roared amidst Your meeting place; they made their signs for signs. They fixed their emblems over the entrance, emblems never known before. Their axes deep in the wood, hacking at the panels, they battered them down with axe and pick. They have sent Your Sanctuary up in flames; to the ground they have desecrated the Abode of Your Holy Name. In their heart, they said – their rulers all together – ‘Let us crush them at one stroke!’ They have burned down all of God’s meeting places on earth; every sacred shrine in the land. Our signs we have not seen, there is no longer a prophet, and there is none among us who knows for how long it will last” (Ps 74:3-9).
