Psalm 74

DBY 1 {An instruction: of Asaph.} Why, O God, hast thou cast off for ever? [why] doth thine anger smoke against the sheep of thy pasture? NIV 1 Why have you rejected us forever, O God? Why does your anger smolder against the sheep of your pasture? DBY 2 Remember thine assembly, which thou hast purchased of old, which thou hast redeemed [to be] the portion of thine inheritance, this mount Zion, wherein thou hast dwelt. NIV 2 Remember the people you purchased of old, the tribe of your inheritance, whom you redeemed-- Mount Zion, where you dwelt. DBY 3 Lift up thy steps unto the perpetual desolations: everything in the sanctuary hath the enemy destroyed. NIV 3 Turn your steps toward these everlasting ruins, all this destruction the enemy has brought on the sanctuary. DBY 4 Thine adversaries roar in the midst of thy place of assembly; they set up their signs [for] signs. NIV 4 Your foes roared in the place where you met with us; they set up their standards as signs. DBY 5 [A man] was known as he could lift up axes in the thicket of trees; NIV 5 They behaved like men wielding axes to cut through a thicket of trees. DBY 6 And now they break down its carved work altogether, with hatchets and hammers. NIV 6 They smashed all the carved paneling with their axes and hatchets. DBY 7 They have set on fire thy sanctuary, they have profaned the habitation of thy name to the ground. NIV 7 They burned your sanctuary to the ground; they defiled the dwelling place of your Name. DBY 8 They said in their heart, Let us destroy them together: they have burned up all God's places of assembly in the land. NIV 8 They said in their hearts, "We will crush them completely!" They burned every place where God was worshiped in the land. DBY 9 We see not our signs; there is no more any prophet, neither is there among us any that knoweth how long. NIV 9 We are given no miraculous signs; no prophets are left, and none of us knows how long this will be. DBY 10 How long, O God, shall the adversary reproach? Shall the enemy contemn thy name for ever? NIV 10 How long will the enemy mock you, O God? Will the foe revile your name forever? DBY 11 Why withdrawest thou thy hand, and thy right hand? [pluck it] out of thy bosom: consume [them]. NIV 11 Why do you hold back your hand, your right hand? Take it from the folds of your garment and destroy them! DBY 12 But God is my king of old, accomplishing deliverances in the midst of the earth. NIV 12 But you, O God, are my king from of old; you bring salvation upon the earth. DBY 13 *Thou* didst divide the sea by thy strength; thou didst break the heads of the monsters on the waters: NIV 13 It was you who split open the sea by your power; you broke the heads of the monster in the waters. DBY 14 *Thou* didst break in pieces the heads of leviathan, thou gavest him to be meat to those that people the desert. NIV 14 It was you who crushed the heads of Leviathan and gave him as food to the creatures of the desert. DBY 15 *Thou* didst cleave fountain and torrent, *thou* driedst up ever-flowing rivers. NIV 15 It was you who opened up springs and streams; you dried up the ever flowing rivers. DBY 16 The day is thine, the night also is thine; *thou* hast prepared the moon and the sun: NIV 16 The day is yours, and yours also the night; you established the sun and moon. DBY 17 *Thou* hast set all the borders of the earth; summer and winter -- *thou* didst form them. NIV 17 It was you who set all the boundaries of the earth; you made both summer and winter. DBY 18 Remember this, that an enemy hath reproached Jehovah, and a foolish people have contemned thy name. NIV 18 Remember how the enemy has mocked you, O LORD, how foolish people have reviled your name. DBY 19 Give not up the soul of thy turtle-dove unto the wild beast; forget not the troop of thine afflicted for ever. NIV 19 Do not hand over the life of your dove to wild beasts; do not forget the lives of your afflicted people forever. DBY 20 Have respect unto the covenant; for the dark places of the earth are full of the dwellings of violence. NIV 20 Have regard for your covenant, because haunts of violence fill the dark places of the land. DBY 21 Oh let not the oppressed one return ashamed; let the afflicted and needy praise thy name. NIV 21 Do not let the oppressed retreat in disgrace; may the poor and needy praise your name. DBY 22 Rise up, O God, plead thine own cause: remember how the foolish man reproacheth thee all the day; NIV 22 Rise up, O God, and defend your cause; remember how fools mock you all day long. DBY 23 Forget not the voice of thine adversaries: the tumult of those that rise up against thee ascendeth continually. NIV 23 Do not ignore the clamor of your adversaries, the uproar of your enemies, which rises continually.
