King James Bible : Psalms : Chapter 74


74:1
O 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 how long.
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 the wilderness.
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 thy name.
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 cruelty.
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 continually.
