74:1  <Maschil. Of Asaph.> Of God, why have you put us away from you for ever? why is the fire of your wrath smoking against the sheep who are your care?
74:2  Keep in mind your band of worshippers, for whom you gave payment in the days which are past, whom you took for yourself as the people of your heritage; even this mountain of Zion, which has been your resting-place.
74:3  Go up and see the unending destruction; all the evil which your haters have done in the holy place;
74:4  Sending out their voices like lions among your worshippers; they have put up their signs to be seen.
74:5  They are cutting down, like a man whose blade is lifted up against the thick trees.
74:6  Your doors are broken down with hammers and iron blades.
74:7  They have put on fire your holy place; they have made the place of your name unclean, pulling it down to the earth.
74:8  They have said in their hearts, Let us put an end to them all together; they have given over to the fire all God's places of worship in the land.
74:9  We do not see our signs: there is no longer any prophet, or anyone among us to say how long.
74:10  O God, how long will those who are against us say cruel things? will the hater go on looking down on your name for ever?
74:11  Why are you keeping back your hand, and covering your right hand in your robe?
74:12  For from the past God is my King, working salvation in the earth.
74:13  The sea was parted in two by your strength; the heads of the great sea-beasts were broken.
74:14  The heads of the great snake were crushed by you; you gave them as food to the fishes of the sea.
74:15  You made valleys for fountains and springs; you made the ever-flowing rivers dry.
74:16  The day is yours and the night is yours: you made the light and the sun.
74:17  By you all the limits of the earth were fixed; you have made summer and winter.
74:18  Keep this in mind, O Lord, that your haters have said cruel things, and that your name has been looked down on by a people of evil behaviour.
74:19  O give not the soul of your dove to the hawk; let not the life of the poor go out of your memory for ever.
74:20  Keep in mind your undertaking; for the dark places of the earth are full of pride and cruel acts.
74:21  O let not the crushed be turned back in shame; let the low man and the poor give praise to your name.
74:22  Up! O God, be the judge of your cause; keep in mind the bitter things which the man of evil behaviour says against you every day.
74:23  Keep in mind the voice of your haters; the outcry of those who come against you goes up every day.
