17 So now, our God, listen to the prayer of Your servant and to his supplications,
and for Your sake, O Lord, let Your face shine on Your desolate sanctuary.
18 O my God, incline Your ear and hear! Open Your eyes and see our desolations and the city which is called by Your name;
for we are not presenting our supplications before You on account of any merits of our own, but on account of Your great compassion.
19 O Lord, hear! O Lord, forgive! O Lord, listen and take action!
For Your own sake, O my God, do not delay, because Your city and Your people are called by Your name.”
