Chapter 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? 

2

 Remember thy congregation, [which] thou hast purchased of old; the rod of thine inheritance, [which] thou hast redeemed; this mount Zion, wherein thou hast dwelt. 

3

 Lift up thy feet unto the perpetual desolations; [even] all [that] the enemy hath done wickedly in the sanctuary. 

4

 Thine enemies roar in the midst of thy congregations; they set up their ensigns [for] signs. 

5

 [A man] was famous according as he had lifted up axes upon the thick trees. 

6

 But now they break down the carved work thereof at once with axes and hammers. 

7

 They have cast fire into thy sanctuary, they have defiled [by casting down] the dwelling place of thy name to the ground. 

8

 They said in their hearts, Let us destroy them together: they have burned up all the synagogues of God in the land. 

9

 We see not our signs: [there is] no more any prophet: neither [is there] among us any that knoweth how long. 

10

 O God, how long shall the adversary reproach? shall the enemy blaspheme thy name for ever? 

11

 Why withdrawest thou thy hand, even thy right hand? pluck [it] out of thy bosom. 

12

 For God [is] my King of old, working salvation in the midst of the earth. 

13

 Thou didst divide the sea by thy strength: thou brakest the heads of the dragons in the waters. 

14

 Thou brakest the heads of leviathan in pieces, [and] gavest him [to be] meat to the people inhabiting the wilderness. 

15

 Thou didst cleave the fountain and the flood: thou driedst up mighty rivers. 

16

 The day [is] thine, the night also [is] thine: thou hast prepared the light and the sun. 

17

 Thou hast set all the borders of the earth: thou hast made summer and winter. 

18

 Remember this, [that] the enemy hath reproached, O LORD, and [that] the foolish people have blasphemed thy name. 

19

 O deliver not the soul of thy turtledove unto the multitude [of the wicked]: forget not the congregation of thy poor for ever. 

20

 Have respect unto the covenant: for the dark places of the earth are full of the habitations of cruelty. 

21

 O let not the oppressed return ashamed: let the poor and needy praise thy name. 

22

 Arise, O God, plead thine own cause: remember how the foolish man reproacheth thee daily. 

23

 Forget not the voice of thine enemies: the tumult of those that rise up against thee increaseth continually.
