Psalm 79:7
Parallel Verses
New International Version
for they have devoured Jacob and devastated his homeland.

King James Bible
For they have devoured Jacob, and laid waste his dwelling place.

Darby Bible Translation
For they have devoured Jacob, and laid waste his habitation.

World English Bible
For they have devoured Jacob, and destroyed his homeland.

Young's Literal Translation
For one hath devoured Jacob, And his habitation they have made desolate.

Psalm 79:7 Parallel
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Laid waste his dwelling-place - The Chaldee understands this of the temple. This, by way of eminence, was Jacob's place. I have already remarked that these two verses are almost similar to Jeremiah 10:25, which has led many to believe that Jeremiah was the author of this Psalm.

The Attack on the Scriptures
[Illustration: (drop cap B) A Greek Warrior] But troubled times came again to Jerusalem. The great empires of Babylon and Assyria had passed away for ever, exactly as the prophets of Israel had foretold; but new powers had arisen in the world, and the great nations fought together so constantly that all the smaller countries, and with them the Kingdom of Judah, changed hands very often. At last Alexander the Great managed to make himself master of all the countries of the then-known world. Alexander

The Formation of the Old Testament Canon
[Sidenote: Israel's literature at the beginning of the fourth century before Christ] Could we have studied the scriptures of the Israelitish race about 400 B.C., we should have classified them under four great divisions: (1) The prophetic writings, represented by the combined early Judean, Ephraimite, and late prophetic or Deuteronomic narratives, and their continuation in Samuel and Kings, together with the earlier and exilic prophecies; (2) the legal, represented by the majority of the Old Testament
