What does Psalm 74:23 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Psalms 74:23

Forget not the voice of thine enemies
Their roaring in the midst of the sanctuary and the congregation, ( Psalms 74:4 ) , their reproaching and blaspheming voice, ( Psalms 74:10 Psalms 74:18 Psalms 74:22 ) ,

the tumult of those that rise up against thee increaseth continually,
or "ascendeth" F9; goes up to God, and is taken notice of by him; the cry of their sins, like that of Sodom and Gomorrah, and of the city of Nineveh, ( Genesis 18:20 Genesis 18:21 ) ( Jonah 1:2 ) , was continually going up to God; wherefore it might be hoped and expected that vengeance in a little time would come down; see ( Revelation 18:5-7 ) , the Septuagint, and the versions that follow that, render it, "the pride of those" all these petitions are prayers of faith, and are, or will be, heard and answered; upon which will follow thanksgivings, with which the next psalm begins.


F9 (dymt hlwe) "ascendens semper", Montanus; "ascendit semper", V. L. Musculus, Gejerus.
