Psalm 74

74:1 Maschil of Asaph. O God, why hast thou cast vs off for euer why doeth thine anger smoke against the sheepe of thy pasture 74:2 Remember thy Congregation which thou hast purchased of olde: the rod of thine inheritance which thou hast redeemed, this mount Sion, wherein thou hast dwelt. 74:3 Lift vp thy feete vnto the perpetuall desolations: euen all that the enemie hath done wickedly in the Sanctuarie. 74:4 Thine enemies roare in the midst of thy congregations: they set vp their ensignes for signes. 74:5 A man was famous according as he had lifted vp axes vpon the thicke trees. 74:6 But now they breake downe the carued worke thereof at once, with axes and hammers. 74:7 They haue cast fire into thy Sanctuary, they haue defiled by casting downe, the dwelling place of thy Nawe to the ground. 74:8 They said in their hearts, Let vs destroy them together: they haue burnt vp all the Synagogues of God in the land. 74:9 We see not our signes, there is no more any prophet, neither is there among vs any that knoweth howe long. 74:10 O God, how long shall the aduersarie reproach shall the enemie blaspheme thy Name for euer 74:11 Why withdrawest thou thy hand, euen thy right hand plucke it out of thy bosome. 74:12 For God is my King of old working saluation in the midst of the earth. 74:13 Thou didst diuide the sea by thy strength: thou brakest the heads of the dragons in the waters. 74:14 Thou brakest the heads of Leuiathan in pieces, and gauest him to bee meat to the people inhabiting the wildernesse. 74:15 Thou didst cleaue the fountaine and the flood: thou driedst vp mightie riuers. 74:16 The day is thine, the night also is thine: thou hast prepared the light and the sunne. 74:17 Thou hast set all the borders of the earth: Thou hast made Summer and Winter. 74:18 Remember this, that the enemie hath reproached, O Lord, and that the foolish people haue blasphemed thy Name. 74:19 O deliuer not the soule of thy turtle doue vnto the multitude of the wicked forget not the Congregation of thy poore for euer. 74:20 Haue respect vnto the couenant: for the darke places of the earth are full of the habitations of crueltie. 74:21 O let not the oppressed returne ashamed: let the poore and needie praise thy name. 74:22 Arise, O God, plead thine owne cause: remember how the foolish man reprocheth thee daily. 74:23 Forget not the voyce of thine enemies: the tumult of those that rise vp against thee, increaseth continually.
