Psalm 74 (WEBP)

[1] God, why have you rejected us forever? Why does your anger smolder against the sheep of your pasture?
[2] Remember your congregation, which you purchased of old, which you have redeemed to be the tribe of your inheritance: Mount Zion, in which you have lived.
[3] Lift up your feet to the perpetual ruins, all the evil that the enemy has done in the sanctuary.
[4] Your adversaries have roared in the middle of your assembly. They have set up their standards as signs.
[5] They behaved like men wielding axes, cutting through a thicket of trees.
[6] Now they break all its carved work down with hatchet and hammers.
[7] They have burned your sanctuary to the ground. They have profaned the dwelling place of your Name.
[8] They said in their heart, “We will crush them completely.” They have burned up all the places in the land where God was worshiped.
[9] We see no miraculous signs. There is no longer any prophet, neither is there among us anyone who knows how long.
[10] How long, God, shall the adversary reproach? Shall the enemy blaspheme your name forever?
[11] Why do you draw back your hand, even your right hand? Take it from your chest and consume them!
[12] Yet God is my King of old, working salvation throughout the earth.
[13] You divided the sea by your strength. You broke the heads of the sea monsters in the waters.
[14] You broke the heads of Leviathan in pieces. You gave him as food to people and desert creatures.
[15] You opened up spring and stream. You dried up mighty rivers.
[16] The day is yours, the night is also yours. You have prepared the light and the sun.
[17] You have set all the boundaries of the earth. You have made summer and winter.
[18] Remember this, that the enemy has mocked you, Yahweh. Foolish people have blasphemed your name.
[19] Don’t deliver the soul of your dove to wild beasts. Don’t forget the life of your poor forever.
[20] Honor your covenant, for haunts of violence fill the dark places of the earth.
[21] Don’t let the oppressed return ashamed. Let the poor and needy praise your name.
[22] Arise, God! Plead your own cause. Remember how the foolish man mocks you all day.
[23] Don’t forget the voice of your adversaries. The tumult of those who rise up against you ascends continually.

Psalm 74 (KJVS)

[1] «Maschil H4905 (8688) of Asaph H623.» O God H430, why hast thou cast [us] off H2186 (8804) for ever H5331? [why] doth thine anger H639 smoke H6225 (8799) against the sheep H6629 of thy pasture H4830?
[2] Remember H2142 (8798) thy congregation H5712, [which] thou hast purchased H7069 (8804) of old H6924; the rod H7626 of thine inheritance H5159, [which] thou hast redeemed H1350 (8804); this mount H2022 Zion H6726, wherein thou hast dwelt H7931 (8804).
[3] Lift up H7311 (8685) thy feet H6471 unto the perpetual H5331 desolations H4876; [even] all [that] the enemy H341 (8802) hath done wickedly H7489 (8689) in the sanctuary H6944.
[4] Thine enemies H6887 (8802) roar H7580 (8804) in the midst H7130 of thy congregations H4150; they set up H7760 (8804) their ensigns H226 [for] signs H226.
[5] [A man] was famous H3045 (8735) according as he had lifted up H935 (8688) H4605 axes H7134 upon the thick H5442 trees H6086.
[6] But now they break down H1986 (8799) the carved work H6603 thereof at once H3162 with axes H3781 and hammers H3597.
[7] They have cast H7971 (8765) fire H784 into thy sanctuary H4720, they have defiled H2490 (8765) [by casting down] the dwelling place H4908 of thy name H8034 to the ground H776.
[8] They said H559 (8804) in their hearts H3820, Let us destroy H3238 (8799) them together H3162: they have burned up H8313 (8804) all the synagogues H4150 of God H410 in the land H776.
[9] We see H7200 (8804) not our signs H226: [there is] no more any prophet H5030: neither [is there] among us any that knoweth H3045 (8802) how long H5704.
[10] O God H430, how long shall the adversary H6862 reproach H2778 (8762)? shall the enemy H341 (8802) blaspheme H5006 (8762) thy name H8034 for ever H5331?
[11] Why withdrawest H7725 (8686) thou thy hand H3027, even thy right hand H3225? pluck H3615 (8761) [it] out of H7130 thy bosom H2436 (8675) H2436.
[12] For God H430 [is] my King H4428 of old H6924, working H6466 (8802) salvation H3444 in the midst H7130 of the earth H776.
[13] Thou didst divide H6565 (8782) the sea H3220 by thy strength H5797: thou brakest H7665 (8765) the heads H7218 of the dragons H8577 in the waters H4325.
[14] Thou brakest H7533 (8765) the heads H7218 of leviathan H3882 in pieces, [and] gavest H5414 (8799) him [to be] meat H3978 to the people H5971 inhabiting the wilderness H6728.
[15] Thou didst cleave H1234 (8804) the fountain H4599 and the flood H5158: thou driedst up H3001 (8689) mighty H386 rivers H5104.
[16] The day H3117 [is] thine, the night H3915 also [is] thine: thou hast prepared H3559 (8689) the light H3974 and the sun H8121.
[17] Thou hast set H5324 (8689) all the borders H1367 of the earth H776: thou hast made H3335 (8804) summer H7019 and winter H2779.
[18] Remember H2142 (8798) this, [that] the enemy H341 (8802) hath reproached H2778 (8765), O LORD H3068, and [that] the foolish H5036 people H5971 have blasphemed H5006 (8765) thy name H8034.
[19] O deliver H5414 (8799) not the soul H5315 of thy turtledove H8449 unto the multitude H2416 [of the wicked]: forget H7911 (8799) not the congregation H2416 of thy poor H6041 for ever H5331.
[20] Have respect H5027 (8685) unto the covenant H1285: for the dark H4285 places of the earth H776 are full H4390 (8804) of the habitations H4999 of cruelty H2555.
[21] O let not the oppressed H1790 return H7725 (8799) ashamed H3637 (8737): let the poor H6041 and needy H34 praise H1984 (8762) thy name H8034.
[22] Arise H6965 (8798), O God H430, plead H7378 (8798) thine own cause H7379: remember H2142 (8798) how the foolish man H5036 reproacheth H2781 thee daily H3117.
[23] Forget H7911 (8799) not the voice H6963 of thine enemies H6887 (8802): the tumult H7588 of those that rise up H6965 (8801) against thee increaseth H5927 (8802) continually H8548.

Young’s Literal Translation

Psalm 74 (YLT)

[1] Why, O God, hast Thou cast off for ever? Thine anger smoketh against the flock of Thy pasture.
[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.
[3] Lift up Thy steps to the perpetual desolations, Everything the enemy did wickedly in the sanctuary.
[4] Roared have thine adversaries, In the midst of Thy meeting-places, They have set their ensigns as ensigns.
[5] He is known as one bringing in on high Against a thicket of wood-axes.
[6] And now, its carvings together With axe and hatchet they break down,
[7] They have sent into fire Thy sanctuary, to the earth they polluted the tabernacle of Thy name,
[8] They said in their hearts, ‘Let us oppress them together,’ They did burn all the meeting-places of God in the land.
[9] Our ensigns we have not seen, There is no more a prophet, Nor with us is one knowing how long.
[10] Till when, O God, doth an adversary reproach? Doth an enemy despise thy name for ever?
[11] Why dost Thou turn back Thy hand, Even Thy right hand? From the midst of Thy bosom remove it.
[12] And God is my king of old, Working salvation in the midst of the earth.
[13] Thou hast broken by Thy strength a sea-monster, Thou hast shivered Heads of dragons by the waters,
[14] Thou hast broken the heads of leviathan, Thou makest him food, For the people of the dry places.
[15] Thou hast cleaved a fountain and a stream, Thou hast dried up perennial flowings.
[16] Thine is the day, also Thine is the night, Thou hast prepared a light giver-the sun.
[17] Thou hast set up all the borders of earth, Summer and winter Thou hast formed them.
[18] Remember this-an enemy reproached Jehovah, And a foolish people have despised Thy name.
[19] Give not up to a company, The soul of Thy turtle-dove, The company of Thy poor ones forget not for ever.
[20] Look attentively to the covenant, For the dark places of earth, Have been full of habitations of violence.
[21] Let not the oppressed turn back ashamed, Let the poor and needy praise Thy name,
[22] Arise, O God, plead Thy plea, Remember Thy reproach from a fool all the day.
[23] Forget not the voice of Thine adversaries, The noise of Thy withstanders is going up continually!
