74:1 Maschil of Asaph. Why, O God, hast Thou cast us off for ever? Why doth Thine anger smoke against the flock of Thy pasture?
74:2 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.
74:3 Lift up Thy steps because of the perpetual ruins, even all the evil that the enemy hath done in the sanctuary.
74:4 Thine adversaries have roared in the midst of Thy meeting-place; they have set up their own signs for signs.
74:5 It seemed as when men wield upwards axes in a thicket of trees.
74:6 And now all the carved work thereof together they strike down with hatchet and hammers.
74:7 They have set Thy sanctuary on fire; they have profaned the dwelling-place of Thy name even to the ground.
74:8 They said in their heart: 'Let us make havoc of them altogether'; they have burned up all the meeting-places 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 how long.
74:10 How long, O God, shall the adversary reproach? Shall the enemy blaspheme Thy name for ever?
74:11 Why withdrawest Thou Thy hand, even Thy right hand? Draw it out of Thy bosom and consume them.
74:12 Yet God is my King of old, working salvation in the midst of the earth.
74:13 Thou didst break the sea in pieces by Thy strength; Thou didst shatter the heads of the sea-monsters in the waters.
74:14 Thou didst crush the heads of leviathan, Thou gavest him to be food to the folk inhabiting the wilderness.
74:15 Thou didst cleave fountain and brook; Thou driedst up ever-flowing rivers.74:16 Thine is the day, Thine also the night; Thou hast established luminary and sun.
74:17 Thou hast set all the borders of the earth; Thou hast made summer and winter.
74:18 Remember this, how the enemy hath reproached the Lord, and how a base people have blasphemed Thy name.
74:19 O deliver not the soul of Thy turtle-dove unto the wild beast; forget not the life of Thy poor for ever.
74:20 Look upon the covenant; for the dark places of the land are full of the habitations of violence.
74:21 O let not the oppressed turn back in confusion; let the poor and needy praise Thy name.
74:22 Arise, O God, plead Thine own cause; remember Thy reproach all the day at the hand of the base man.
74:23 Forget not the voice of Thine adversaries, the tumult of those that rise up against Thee which ascendeth continually.
