Psalm 74

74:1 An Instruction of Asaph. Why, O God, hast Thou cast off for ever Thine anger smoketh against the flock of Thy pasture. 74:2 Remember Thy company. Thou didst purchase of old, Thou didst redeem the rod of Thy inheritance, This mount Zion--Thou didst dwell in it. 74:3 Lift up Thy steps to the perpetual desolations, Everything the enemy did wickedly in the sanctuary. 74:4 Roared have thine adversaries, In the midst of Thy meeting-places, They have set their ensigns as ensigns. 74:5 He is known as one bringing in on high Against a thicket of wood--axes. 74:6 And now, its carvings together With axe and hatchet they break down, 74:7 They have sent into fire Thy sanctuary, to the earth they polluted the tabernacle of Thy name, 74:8 They said in their hearts, `Let us oppress them together,' They did burn all the meeting-places of God in the land. 74:9 Our ensigns we have not seen, There is no more a prophet, Nor with us is one knowing how long. 74:10 Till when, O God, doth an adversary reproach Doth an enemy despise thy name for ever 74:11 Why dost Thou turn back Thy hand, Even Thy right hand From the midst of Thy bosom remove [it] .  74:12 And God [is] my king of old, Working salvation in the midst of the earth. 74:13 Thou hast broken by Thy strength a sea-[ monster] , Thou hast shivered Heads of dragons by the waters, 74:14 Thou hast broken the heads of leviathan, Thou makest him food, For the people of the dry places. 74:15 Thou hast cleaved a fountain and a stream, Thou hast dried up perennial flowings. 74:16 Thine [is] the day, also Thine [is] the night, Thou hast prepared a light giver--the sun. 74:17 Thou hast set up all the borders of earth, Summer and winter Thou hast formed them.  74:18 Remember this--an enemy reproached Jehovah, And a foolish people have despised Thy name. 74:19 Give not up to a company, The soul of Thy turtle-dove, The company of Thy poor ones forget not for ever. 74:20 Look attentively to the covenant, For the dark places of earth, Have been full of habitations of violence. 74:21 Let not the oppressed turn back ashamed, Let the poor and needy praise Thy name, 74:22 Arise, O God, plead Thy plea, Remember Thy reproach from a fool all the day. 74:23 Forget not the voice of Thine adversaries, The noise of Thy withstanders is going up continually!
