019:074:001
O God,
why hast thou cast us off for ever?
why doth thine anger smoke against the sheep of thy pasture?


019:074:002
Remember thy congregation,
which thou hast purchased of old;
the rod of thine inheritance,
which thou hast redeemed;
this mount Zion,
wherein thou hast dwelt.


019:074:003
Lift up thy feet unto the perpetual desolations;
even all that the enemy hath done wickedly in the sanctuary.


019:074:004
Thine enemies roar in the midst of thy congregations;
they set up their ensigns for signs.


019:074:005
A man was famous according as he had lifted up axes upon the thick trees.


019:074:006
But now they break down the carved work thereof at once with axes and hammers.


019:074:007
They have cast fire into thy sanctuary,
they have defiled by casting down the dwelling place of thy name to the ground.


019:074:008
They said in their hearts,
Let us destroy them together:
they have burned up all the synagogues of God in the land.


019:074:009
We see not our signs:
there is no more any prophet:
neither is there among us any that knoweth how long.


019:074:010
O God,
how long shall the adversary reproach?
shall the enemy blaspheme thy name for ever?


019:074:011
Why withdrawest thou thy hand,
even thy right hand?
pluck it out of thy bosom.


019:074:012
For God is my King of old,
working salvation in the midst of the earth.


019:074:013
Thou didst divide the sea by thy strength:
thou brakest the heads of the dragons in the waters.


019:074:014
Thou brakest the heads of leviathan in pieces,
and gavest him to be meat to the people inhabiting the wilderness.


019:074:015
Thou didst cleave the fountain and the flood:
thou driedst up mighty rivers.


019:074:016
The day is thine,
the night also is thine:
thou hast prepared the light and the sun.


019:074:017
Thou hast set all the borders of the earth:
thou hast made summer and winter.


019:074:018
Remember this,
that the enemy hath reproached,
O LORD,
and that the foolish people have blasphemed thy name.


019:074:019
O deliver not the soul of thy turtledove unto the multitude of the wicked:
forget not the congregation of thy poor for ever.


019:074:020
Have respect unto the covenant:
for the dark places of the earth are full of the habitations of cruelty.


019:074:021
O let not the oppressed return ashamed:
let the poor and needy praise thy name.


019:074:022
Arise,
O God,
plead thine own cause:
remember how the foolish man reproacheth thee daily.


019:074:023
Forget not the voice of thine enemies:
the tumult of those that rise up against thee increaseth continually.
