New American Standard Bible
3 [a]Turn Your footsteps toward the (A)perpetual ruins;
The enemy (B)has damaged everything within the sanctuary.
4 Your adversaries have (C)roared in the midst of Your meeting place;
They have set up their (D)own [b]standards (E)for signs.
5 It seems as if one had lifted up
His [c](F)axe in a [d]forest of trees.
6 And now [e]all its (G)carved work
They smash with hatchet and [f]hammers.
7 They have [g](H)burned Your sanctuary [h]to the ground;
They have (I)defiled the dwelling place of Your name.
