Thus on the Persian side , religious benevolence had increased under Yasdegerd I (399-420); married to a Jewess – Sussan – the sovereign manifests with Jews and Christians a real support.
His successor Bahrâm V (421-438), named Bahrâm Gûr, will overcome the struggle against other princes with the support of external forces. As a result of persecutions against Christians, friction occurs with Byzantium. These ends when the Christians of Persia break with those of Byzantium thus reducing the risks of double allegiance dreaded by the Persians.
(extract of the psalm 69 associated to this generation, verses 1 to 10 )
- For the conductor, on shoshannim, of David.
- Save me, O God, for water has come up to my soul.
- I have sunk in muddy depths and there is no place to stand; I have come into the deep water, and the current has swept me away.
- I have become weary from calling out; my throat has become parched; my eyes fail while I wait for my God.
- Those who hate me for nothing are more numerous than the hairs of my head;
- The beginning of the Psalm illustrates the « dead end » situation of the Jews of this generation forced to undergo either the Byzantine anti-Jewish laws or the Sassanids.
- (verse 5 continuing) mighty are those who would cut me off, who are my enemies because of lies; what I did not steal, I will then return.…
- This opposition is by no means justified on the Christian or the Persian side.
- O God, You know my folly, and my acts of guilt are not concealed from You.
- Do not let those who hope for You be shamed through me, O Lord God of Hosts; let those who seek You not be disgraced through me, O God of Israel.
- For I have borne humiliation because of You; disgrace has covered my face.
- David knows that his people defend the just voice of God and that the reproach suffered is insignificant in the face of divine trust.
- I was strange to my brothers, and alien to the sons of my mother.
- For the envy of Your house has consumed me, and the humiliations of those who blaspheme You have fallen upon me.
- Christians, who at the beginning of their history were integrated into Judaism today, deny it. The brothers of yesterday turn away from the Jews, like Esau towards Israel.
- The  indictment develops. Wolverines, drunkards, and carnals, the Jews are even to their fasts, which are an insult to God. The day of the Great Forgiveness is an occasion for indecent festivities: they dance barefoot on the squares; gathering together effeminate young choruses and a collection of women of bad life, they lead to the synagogue all the theater and the people of the stage: for between theater and the synagogue there is no medium.
(extract of the psalm 69 associated to this generation, verses 11 to 13 )
- When I weep and fast, I must endure scorn;
- And I made sackcloth my raiment, and I became a byword to them.
- They talk about me, those who sit in the gate, and [they make] melodies [about me] for those who imbibe strong drink.
(extract of the psalm 69 associated to this generation, verses 14 to 37 )
- But, as for me, may my prayer to You, O Lord, be in an acceptable time. O God, with Your abundant kindness, answer me with the truth of Your salvation.
- Save me from mud that I not sink, that I be saved from my enemies and from the depths of water.
- Let neither the current of water sweep me away, nor the deep swallow me, and let a well not close its mouth over me.
- Answer me, O Lord, for Your kindness is good; according to Your abundant mercies, turn to me.
- And do not hide Your face from Your servant, because I am distressed, hasten to answer me.
- Come close to my soul, redeem it; because of my enemies, redeem me.
- You know my humiliation, my shame, and my disgrace; all my oppressors are before You.
- Humiliation has broken my heart and I have become ill; I hoped for sympathy but there was none, and for comforters but I found none.
- They put gall into my food and for my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.
- May their table before them become a trap, and [their hope] for peace become a snare.
- May their eyes become dark, so they cannot see; constantly cause their loins to slip.
- Pour out Your fury upon them, and may Your burning wrath overtake them.
- The arrival of Attila the « scourge of God » will indirectly grant the wishes of David.
- May their palace be desolate; in their tents let there be no dweller.
- Rome, the « tent » of Esau will soon fall definitively.
- For You-those whom You smote they pursued, and about the pain of those whom You wounded they tell.
- Add iniquity to their iniquity, and let them not come into Your charity.
- May they be erased from the book of life, and may they not be inscribed with the righteous.
- But I am poor and in pain; may Your salvation, O God, exalt me.
- I shall praise the name of God with song, and I shall magnify Him with a thanksgiving offering.
- And it will appeal to the Lord more than a young bull that is mature, with horns and hooves.
- Recall that the bull symbolizes the priest and the two horns east and west. Thus David recalls the primacy of the Jewish people in relation to the competition that these two entities want to bring to him through Christianity and Islam (for Islam, while awaiting its advent, the Persians represent them).
- When the humble see, they rejoice, yea, those who seek God, and your heart will be invigorated.
- For God hearkens to the needy, and He does not despise His prisoners.
- Heaven and earth will praise Him, the seas and everything that moves therein,
- When God saves Zion and builds the cities of Judah, and they dwell there and take possession of it.
- And the seed of His servants inherit it, and those who love His name dwell therein.
- David reminds us that despite the victorious feeling that will be born among the nations because of the unenviable fate of the Jews through the generations that will follow, it will eventually find its land, reaffirming its privileged place near God.
