Psalm 74

1  O God, why have you utterly disowned us? 
   Why does your anger burn
      against the sheep of your pasture?
2  Remember your congregation that you purchased of old, 
   the tribe you redeemed for your own possession,
      and Mount Zion where you dwelt.
3  Hasten your steps towards the endless ruins, 
   where the enemy has laid waste all your sanctuary.
4  Your adversaries roared in the place of your worship; 
   they set up their banners as tokens of victory.
5  Like men brandishing axes on high in a thicket of trees, 
   all her carved work they smashed down with hatchet and hammer.
6  They set fire to your holy place; 
   they defiled the dwelling place of your name
      and razed it to the ground.
7  They said in their heart, ‘Let us make havoc of them altogether,’ 
   and they burned down all the sanctuaries of God in the land.
8  There are no signs to see, not one prophet left, 
   not one among us who knows how long.
9  How long, O God, will the adversary scoff? 
   Shall the enemy blaspheme your name for ever?
10  Why have you withheld your hand 
   and hidden your right hand in your bosom?
