Psalms 74

The prophet complaineth of the desolation of the sanctuary.

Psalms 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? Psalms 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. Psalms 74:3 Lift vp thy feete vnto the perpetuall desolations: [euen] all that the enemie hath done wickedly in the Sanctuarie. Psalms 74:4 Thine enemies roare in the midst of thy congregations: they set vp their ensignes [for] signes. Psalms 74:5 A man was famous according as he had lifted vp axes vpon the thicke trees. Psalms 74:6 But now they breake downe the carued worke thereof at once, with axes and hammers. Psalms 74:7 They haue cast fire into thy Sanctuary, they haue defiled [by casting downe], the dwelling place of thy Nawe to the ground. Psalms 74:8 They said in their hearts, Let vs destroy them together: they haue burnt vp all the Synagogues of God in the land. Psalms 74:9 We see not our signes, [there is] no more any prophet, neither [is there] among vs any that knoweth howe long.

Psalms 74:12 For God [is] my King of old working saluation in the midst of the earth. Psalms 74:13 Thou didst diuide the sea by thy strength: thou brakest the heads of the dragons in the waters. Psalms 74:14 Thou brakest the heads of Leuiathan in pieces, and gauest him to bee meat to the people inhabiting the wildernesse. Psalms 74:15 Thou didst cleaue the fountaine and the flood: thou driedst vp mightie riuers. Psalms 74:16 The day [is] thine, the night also [is] thine: thou hast prepared the light and the sunne. Psalms 74:17 Thou hast set all the borders of the earth: Thou hast made Summer and Winter.

of his reproachful enemies, of his children, and of his Covenant.

Psalms 74:18 Remember this, [that] the enemie hath reproached, O LORD, and [that] the foolish people haue blasphemed thy Name. Psalms 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. Psalms 74:20 Haue respect vnto the couenant: for the darke places of the earth are full of the habitations of crueltie. Psalms 74:21 O let not the oppressed returne ashamed: let the poore and needie praise thy name. Psalms 74:22 Arise, O God, plead thine owne cause: remember how the foolish man reprocheth thee daily. Psalms 74:23 Forget not the voyce of thine enemies: the tumult of those that rise vp against thee, increaseth continually.
