Psalms 74

The prophet complaineth of the desolation of the sanctuary.

Psalms 74:1 {Maschil of Asaph.} O God, why hast thou cast [us] off for ever? why doth thine anger smoke against the sheep of thy pasture? Psalms 74:2 Remember thy congregation, which thou hast purchased of old, which thou hast redeemed to be the tribe of thine inheritance; [and] mount Zion, wherein thou hast dwelt. Psalms 74:3 Lift up thy feet unto the perpetual ruins, all the evil that the enemy hath done in the sanctuary. Psalms 74:4 Thine adversaries have roared in the midst of thine assembly; they have set up their ensigns for signs. Psalms 74:5 They seemed as men that lifted up axes upon a thicket of trees. Psalms 74:6 And now all the carved work thereof together they break down with hatchet and hammers. Psalms 74:7 They have set thy sanctuary on fire; they have profaned the dwelling place of thy name even to the ground. Psalms 74:8 They said in their heart, Let us make havoc of them altogether: they have burned up all the synagogues of God 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.

Psalms 74:13 Thou didst divide the sea by thy strength: thou brakest the heads of the dragons in the waters. Psalms 74:14 Thou brakest the heads of leviathan in pieces, thou gavest him to be meat to the people inhabiting the wilderness. Psalms 74:15 Thou didst cleave fountain and flood: thou driedst up mighty rivers. Psalms 74:16 The day is thine, the night also is thine: thou hast prepared the light and the sun. 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 enemy hath reproached, O LORD, and that foolish people have blasphemed thy name. Psalms 74:19 O deliver not the soul of thy turtle-dove unto the wild beast: forget not the life of thy poor for ever. Psalms 74:20 Have respect unto the covenant: for the dark places of the earth are full of the habitations of violence. Psalms 74:21 O let not the oppressed return ashamed: let the poor and needy praise thy name. Psalms 74:22 Arise, 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.
