Rotherham's Emphasized Bible

Psalms 74

The prophet complaineth of the desolation of the sanctuary.

Psalms 74:1 {An Instructive Psalm. Asaph's.} Wherefore, O God, hast thou cast off utterly? Shall thine anger smoke against the flock of thine own pasturing? Psalms 74:2 Remember thine own assembly thou didst acquire aforetime, Thou didst redeem the tribe of thine own inheritance, Mount Zion, wherein thou didst take up thy habitation. Psalms 74:3 Lift up thy steps unto the places utterly unsafe, All the mischief!—the foe in the sanctuary! Psalms 74:4 Thine adversaries have roared in the midst of thine appointed meeting, They have set their ensigns as tokens! Psalms 74:5 One used to be known according as he carried up high—into the thicket of trees—the axes; Psalms 74:6 But, now, the doors thereof all together, with axes and hammers, they batter down. Psalms 74:7 They have cast, into the fire, thy sanctuary, To the ground, have they profaned the habitation of thy Name. Psalms 74:8 They have said in their heart, Let us suppress them altogether, They have burned up all the meeting-places of GOD in the land. Psalms 74:9 Our own signs, have we not seen,—There is no longer a prophet,—Neither is there with us, one who 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 revile thy Name perpetually? Psalms 74:11 Wherefore shouldst thou withdraw thy hand—thy right hand? [Bring it] out of the midst of thy bosom! [Selah.] Psalms 74:12 But, God, hath been my king from aforetime, Working Deliverances in the midst of the earth. Psalms 74:13 Thou, didst cleave asunder, in thy might, the sea, Thou didst break in pieces the heads of the Crocodiles, [till they floated] on the waters; Psalms 74:14 Thou, didst crush the heads of the Sea-Monster, Thou didst give him to be food, for the people of the deserts; Psalms 74:15 Thou, didst cleave open fountain and torrent, Thou, didst dry up rivers of steady flow: Psalms 74:16 Thine, is the day, Yea, thine, the night, Thou, didst establish moon and sun; Psalms 74:17 Thou, didst set up all the bounds of the earth, As for summer and winter, thou, didst form them!

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

Psalms 74:18 Remember this, An enemy, hath reproached Yahweh, Yea, an impious people, have reviled thy Name. Psalms 74:19 Do not deliver up, to a wild beast, the life of thy turtle-dove, The living host of thine oppressed ones, do not forget perpetually. Psalms 74:20 Have respect to thy covenant, For the dark places of the earth are full of the habitations of violence. Psalms 74:21 May the crushed one not again be confounded, As for the oppressed and the needy, let them praise thy Name. Psalms 74:22 Arise! O God, plead thine own cause, Remember the reproach of thee, from the impious one, all the day: Psalms 74:23 Do not forget the voice of thine adversaries, The noise of thine assailants, ascending continually.
