Book of Psalms
God, why hast thou cast us off for ever? why doth
thine anger smoke against the sheep of thy pasture?
74:2 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.
74:3 Lift up thy feet unto the perpetual
desolations; even all that the enemy hath done
wickedly in the sanctuary.
74:4 Thine enemies roar in the midst of thy
congregations; they set up their ensigns for signs.
74:5 A man was famous according as he had lifted up
axes upon the thick trees.
74:6 But now they break down the carved work thereof
at once with axes and hammers.
74:7 They have cast fire into thy sanctuary, they
have defiled by casting down the dwelling place of
thy name to the ground.
74:8 They said in their hearts, Let us destroy them
together: they have burned up all the synagogues of
God in the land.
74:9 We see not our signs: there is no more any
prophet: neither is there among us any that knoweth
74:10 O God, how long shall the adversary reproach?
shall the enemy blaspheme thy name for ever?
74:11 Why withdrawest thou thy hand, even thy right
hand? pluck it out of thy bosom.
74:12 For God is my King of old, working salvation
in the midst of the earth.
74:13 Thou didst divide the sea by thy strength:
thou brakest the heads of the dragons in the waters.
74:14 Thou brakest the heads of leviathan in pieces,
and gavest him to be meat to the people inhabiting
74:15 Thou didst cleave the fountain and the flood:
thou driedst up mighty rivers.
74:16 The day is thine, the night also is thine:
thou hast prepared the light and the sun.
74:17 Thou hast set all the borders of the earth:
thou hast made summer and winter.
74:18 Remember this, that the enemy hath reproached,
O LORD, and that the foolish people have blasphemed
74:19 O deliver not the soul of thy turtledove unto
the multitude of the wicked: forget not the
congregation of thy poor for ever.
74:20 Have respect unto the covenant: for the dark
places of the earth are full of the habitations of
74:21 O let not the oppressed return ashamed: let
the poor and needy praise thy name.
74:22 Arise, O God, plead thine own cause: remember
how the foolish man reproacheth thee daily.
74:23 Forget not the voice of thine enemies: the
tumult of those that rise up against thee increaseth
