Psalm 74

YLT 1 An Instruction of Asaph. Why, O God, hast Thou cast off for ever? Thine anger smoketh against the flock of Thy pasture. NIV 1 Why have you rejected us forever, O God? Why does your anger smolder against the sheep of your pasture? YLT 2 Remember Thy company. Thou didst purchase of old, Thou didst redeem the rod of Thy inheritance, This mount Zion -- Thou didst dwell in it. NIV 2 Remember the people you purchased of old, the tribe of your inheritance, whom you redeemed-- Mount Zion, where you dwelt. YLT 3 Lift up Thy steps to the perpetual desolations, Everything the enemy did wickedly in the sanctuary. NIV 3 Turn your steps toward these everlasting ruins, all this destruction the enemy has brought on the sanctuary. YLT 4 Roared have thine adversaries, In the midst of Thy meeting-places, They have set their ensigns as ensigns. NIV 4 Your foes roared in the place where you met with us; they set up their standards as signs. YLT 5 He is known as one bringing in on high Against a thicket of wood -- axes. NIV 5 They behaved like men wielding axes to cut through a thicket of trees. YLT 6 And now, its carvings together With axe and hatchet they break down, NIV 6 They smashed all the carved paneling with their axes and hatchets. YLT 7 They have sent into fire Thy sanctuary, to the earth they polluted the tabernacle of Thy name, NIV 7 They burned your sanctuary to the ground; they defiled the dwelling place of your Name. YLT 8 They said in their hearts, `Let us oppress them together,' They did burn all the meeting-places of God 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. YLT 9 Our ensigns we have not seen, There is no more a prophet, Nor with us is one knowing how long. NIV 9 We are given no miraculous signs; no prophets are left, and none of us knows how long this will be. YLT 10 Till when, O God, doth an adversary reproach? Doth an enemy despise thy name for ever? NIV 10 How long will the enemy mock you, O God? Will the foe revile your name forever? YLT 11 Why dost Thou turn back Thy hand, Even Thy right hand? From the midst of Thy bosom remove [it]. NIV 11 Why do you hold back your hand, your right hand? Take it from the folds of your garment and destroy them! YLT 12 And God [is] my king of old, Working salvation in the midst of the earth. NIV 12 But you, O God, are my king from of old; you bring salvation upon the earth. YLT 13 Thou hast broken by Thy strength a sea-[monster], Thou hast shivered Heads of dragons by 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. YLT 14 Thou hast broken the heads of leviathan, Thou makest him food, For the people of the dry places. NIV 14 It was you who crushed the heads of Leviathan and gave him as food to the creatures of the desert. YLT 15 Thou hast cleaved a fountain and a stream, Thou hast dried up perennial flowings. NIV 15 It was you who opened up springs and streams; you dried up the ever flowing rivers. YLT 16 Thine [is] the day, also Thine [is] the night, Thou hast prepared a light giver -- the sun. NIV 16 The day is yours, and yours also the night; you established the sun and moon. YLT 17 Thou hast set up all the borders of earth, Summer and winter Thou hast formed them. NIV 17 It was you who set all the boundaries of the earth; you made both summer and winter. YLT 18 Remember this -- an enemy reproached Jehovah, And a foolish people have despised Thy name. NIV 18 Remember how the enemy has mocked you, O LORD, how foolish people have reviled your name. YLT 19 Give not up to a company, The soul of Thy turtle-dove, The company of Thy poor ones forget not 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. YLT 20 Look attentively to the covenant, For the dark places of earth, Have been full of habitations of violence. NIV 20 Have regard for your covenant, because haunts of violence fill the dark places of the land. YLT 21 Let not the oppressed turn back ashamed, Let the poor and needy praise Thy name, NIV 21 Do not let the oppressed retreat in disgrace; may the poor and needy praise your name. YLT 22 Arise, O God, plead Thy plea, Remember Thy reproach from a fool all the day. NIV 22 Rise up, O God, and defend your cause; remember how fools mock you all day long. YLT 23 Forget not the voice of Thine adversaries, The noise of Thy withstanders is going up continually! NIV 23 Do not ignore the clamor of your adversaries, the uproar of your enemies, which rises continually.
