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

74:4 Thine adversaries have roared in the midst of thine assembly; They have set up their ensigns for signs.

74:5 They seemed as men that lifted up Axes upon a thicket of trees.

74:6 And now all the carved work thereof They break down with hatchet and hammers.

74:7 They have set thy sanctuary on fire; They have profaned the dwelling-place of thy name `by casting it' to the ground.

74:8 They said in their heart, Let us make havoc of them altogether: They have burned up all the synagogues of God in the land.

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 drawest thou back thy hand, even thy right hand? `Pluck 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 divide the sea by thy strength: Thou brakest the heads of the sea-monsters in the waters.

74:14 Thou brakest the heads of leviathan in pieces; Thou gavest him to be food to the people inhabiting the wilderness.

74:15 Thou didst cleave fountain and 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 Jehovah, And that a foolish people hath blasphemed thy name.

74:19 Oh deliver not the soul of thy turtle-dove unto the wild beast: Forget not the life 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 violence.

74:21 Oh 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 all the day.

74:23 Forget not the voice of thine adversaries: The tumult of those that rise up against thee ascendeth continually. Psalm 75 For the Chief Musician; `set to' Al-tash-heth. A Psalm of Asaph; a song.
