Chapter 74

1

Maschil 7919 56 of Asaph.
O God, why hast thou cast [us] off1 for ever? [why] doth thine anger smoke4 against the sheep of thy pasture?

2

Remember3 thy congregation, [which] thou hast purchased1 of old; the rod of thine inheritance, [which] thou hast redeemed;1 this mount Zion, wherein thou hast dwelt.1

3

Lift up54 thy feet unto the perpetual desolations; [even] all [that] the enemy6 hath done wickedly52 in the sanctuary.

4

Thine enemies6 roar1 in the midst of thy congregations; they set up1 their ensigns [for] signs.

5

[A man] was famous11 according as he had lifted56 up axes upon the thick trees.

6

But now they break down4 the carved work thereof at once with axes and hammers.

7

They have cast14 fire into thy sanctuary, they have defiled14 [by casting down] the dwelling place of thy name to the ground.

8

They said1 in their hearts, Let us destroy4 them together: they have burned up1 all the synagogues of God in the land.

9

We see1 not our signs: [there is] no more any prophet: neither [is there] among us any that knoweth6 how long.

10

O God, how long shall the adversary reproach?17 shall the enemy6 blaspheme17 thy name for ever?

11

Why withdrawest55 thou thy hand, even thy right hand? pluck16 [it] out of thy bosom. 2436

12

For God [is] my King of old, working6 salvation in the midst of the earth.

13

Thou didst divide22 the sea by thy strength: thou brakest14 the heads of the dragons in the waters.

14

Thou brakest14 the heads of leviathan in pieces, [and] gavest4 him [to be] meat to the people inhabiting the wilderness.

15

Thou didst cleave1 the fountain and the flood: thou driedst up52 mighty rivers.

16

The day [is] thine, the night also [is] thine: thou hast prepared52 the light and the sun.

17

Thou hast set52 all the borders of the earth: thou hast made1 summer and winter.

18

Remember3 this, [that] the enemy6 hath reproached,14 O LORD, and [that] the foolish people have blasphemed14 thy name.

19

O deliver4 not the soul of thy turtledove unto the multitude [of the wicked]: forget4 not the congregation of thy poor for ever.

20

Have respect54 unto the covenant: for the dark places of the earth are full1 of the habitations of cruelty.

21

O let not the oppressed return4 ashamed:12 let the poor and needy praise17 thy name.

22

Arise,3 O God, plead3 thine own cause: remember3 how the foolish man reproacheth thee daily.

23

Forget4 not the voice of thine enemies:6 the tumult of those that rise up5 against thee increaseth6 continually.
