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.
