Psalms 74

The prophet complaineth of the desolation of the sanctuary.

Psalms 74:1 {A wise instruction (to be song) of Asaph.} O Lorde wherfore dost thou forsake vs altogether? wherfore breaketh foorth thy anger agaynst the sheepe of thy pasture. Psalms 74:2 Remember thy congregation, thou hast possest it nowe a long tyme: thou hast redeemed the rodde of thine inheritaunce, euen mount Sion wherein thou dwellest. Psalms 74:3 Lyft vp thy feete for to destroy vtterly euery enemie: which hath done euyll in thy sanctuarie. Psalms 74:4 Thyne aduersaries roare in the myddest of thy congregations: and set vp their banners for signes [of victorie.] Psalms 74:5 He that hewed tymber afore out of thicke woddes [for to builde the temple:] was esteemed as one offeryng a present [to God] aboue. Psalms 74:6 But nowe they breake downe into peeces all the carued worke therof: with axes and hammers. Psalms 74:7 They haue set fire on thy holy places: they haue defiled the dwellyng place of thy name [castyng it downe] to the groud. Psalms 74:8 Yea, they sayde in their heartes, let vs make hauocke of them altogether: thus haue they burnt vp all the houses of God in the lande. Psalms 74:9 We see not our ensignes, there is not one prophete more: no not one is there amongst vs that vnderstandeth our case.

Psalms 74:12 Truely God is my kyng of olde: who worketh saluation in the myddest of the earth. Psalms 74:13 Thou didst deuide the sea through thy power: thou brakest the heades of the dragons in the waters. Psalms 74:14 Thou smotest the heades of Leuiathan in peeces: and gauest hym to be meate for the people in wildernesse. Psalms 74:15 Thou broughtest out fountaynes and waters out of the harde rockes: thou dyddest drye vp mightie waters. Psalms 74:16 The day is thine, & the nyght is thine: thou hast prepared the light & the sunne. Psalms 74:17 Thou hast set all the borders of the earth: thou hast ordeyned summer and wynter.

Psalms 74:18 Remember this O God, the enemie hath dishonoured: and the foolishe people hath blasphemed thy name.

Psalms 74:20 Loke vpon the couenaunt: for darknesse of the earth hath replenisshed houses with iniquitie. Psalms 74:21 O let not the simple go away ashamed: but let the afflicted & needy geue prayse vnto thy name.
