Psalms 74

The prophet complaineth of the desolation of the sanctuary.

Psalms 74:1 {An instruction: of Asaph.} Why, O God, hast thou cast off for ever? [why] doth thine anger smoke against the sheep of thy pasture? Psalms 74:2 Remember thine assembly, which thou hast purchased of old, which thou hast redeemed [to be] the portion of thine inheritance, this mount Zion, wherein thou hast dwelt. Psalms 74:3 Lift up thy steps unto the perpetual desolations: everything in the sanctuary hath the enemy destroyed. Psalms 74:4 Thine adversaries roar in the midst of thy place of assembly; they set up their signs [for] signs. Psalms 74:5 [A man] was known as he could lift up axes in the thicket of trees; Psalms 74:6 And now they break down its carved work altogether, with hatchets and hammers. Psalms 74:7 They have set on fire thy sanctuary, they have profaned the habitation of thy name to the ground. Psalms 74:8 They said in their heart, Let us destroy them together: they have burned up all *God's places of assembly in the land. Psalms 74:9 We see not our signs; there is no more any prophet, neither is there among us any that knoweth how long.

He moveth God to help in consideration of his power,

Psalms 74:10 How long, O God, shall the adversary reproach? Shall the enemy contemn thy name for ever? Psalms 74:11 Why withdrawest thou thy hand, and thy right hand? [pluck it] out of thy bosom: consume [them]. Psalms 74:12 But God is my king of old, accomplishing deliverances in the midst of the earth. Psalms 74:13 *Thou* didst divide the sea by thy strength; thou didst break the heads of the monsters on the waters: Psalms 74:14 *Thou* didst break in pieces the heads of leviathan, thou gavest him to be meat to those that people the desert. Psalms 74:15 *Thou* didst cleave fountain and torrent, *thou* driedst up ever-flowing rivers. Psalms 74:16 The day is thine, the night also is thine; *thou* hast prepared the moon and the sun: Psalms 74:17 *Thou* hast set all the borders of the earth; summer and winter—*thou* didst form them.

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

Psalms 74:18 Remember this, that an enemy hath reproached Jehovah, and a foolish people have contemned thy name. Psalms 74:19 Give not up the soul of thy turtle-dove unto the wild beast; forget not the troop of thine afflicted for ever. Psalms 74:20 Have respect unto the covenant; for the dark places of the earth are full of the dwellings of violence. Psalms 74:21 Oh let not the oppressed one return ashamed; let the afflicted and needy praise thy name. Psalms 74:22 Rise up, O God, plead thine own cause: remember how the foolish man reproacheth thee all the day; Psalms 74:23 Forget not the voice of thine adversaries: the tumult of those that rise up against thee ascendeth continually.
