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 gotten of old, Which thou hast redeemed to be the tribe of thine inheritance; [And] mount Zion, wherein thou hast dwelt.  

 

 


3

 

  Lift up thy feet unto the perpetual ruins, All the evil that the enemy hath done in the sanctuary.  

 

 


4

 

  Thine adversaries have roared in the midst of thine assembly; They have set up their ensigns for signs.  

 

 


5

 

  They seemed as men that lifted up Axes upon a thicket of trees.  

 

 


6

 

  And now all the carved work thereof They break down with hatchet and hammers.  

 

 


7

 

  They have set thy sanctuary on fire; They have profaned the dwelling-place of thy name [by casting it] to the ground.  

 

 


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.  

 

 


9

 

  We see not our signs: There is no more any prophet; Neither is there among us any that knoweth how long.  

 

 


10

 

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

 

 


11

 

  Why drawest thou back thy hand, even thy right hand? [Pluck it] out of thy bosom [and] consume [them].  

 

 


12

 

  Yet 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 sea-monsters in the waters.  

 

 


14

 

  Thou brakest the heads of leviathan in pieces; Thou gavest him to be food to the people inhabiting the wilderness.  

 

 


15

 

  Thou didst cleave fountain and 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 Jehovah, And that a foolish people hath blasphemed thy name.  

 

 


19

 

  Oh deliver not the soul of thy turtle-dove unto the wild beast: Forget not the life of thy poor for ever.  

 

 


20

 

  Have respect unto the covenant; For the dark places of the earth are full of the habitations of violence.  

 

 


21

 

  Oh 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 all the day.  

 

 


23

 

  Forget not the voice of thine adversaries: The tumult of those that rise up against thee ascendeth continually.
