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.
