    [13] Return, O LORD, how long? and let it repent thee concerning thy servants.

    It is imploring a change in God's dealings. Compare with:

    Why should the Egyptians say, ‘It was with evil intent that he brought them out, to kill them in the mountains and to wipe them off the face of the earth’? Turn from your fierce anger; relent and do not bring disaster on your people. (Exodus 32:12)
