Young's Literal Translation
Psalms, Chapter 74

   1: An Instruction of Asaph. 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!
