Salmos 74

Masquilde Asaf.

1¿Por qué, oh Dios,
    nos has rechazado para siempre?
¿Por qué se ha encendido tu ira
    contra las ovejas de tu prado?
Acuérdate del pueblo que adquiriste
    desde tiempos antiguos,
de la tribu que redimiste
    para que fuera tu posesión.
Acuérdate de este monte Sión,
    que es donde tú habitas.
Dirige tus pasos hacia estas ruinas eternas;
    ¡todo en el santuario lo ha destruido el enemigo!
Tus adversarios rugen en el lugar de tus asambleas
    y plantan sus banderas en señal de victoria.
Parecen leñadores en el bosque,
    talando árboles con sus hachas.
Con sus hachas y martillos
    destrozaron todos los adornos de madera.
Prendieron fuego a tu santuario;
    profanaron el lugar donde habitas.
En su corazón dijeron: «¡Los haremos polvo!»,
    y quemaron en el país todos tus santuarios.
Ya no vemos ondear nuestras banderas;
    ya no hay ningún profeta,
y ni siquiera sabemos
    hasta cuándo durará todo esto.

10 ¿Hasta cuándo, oh Dios, se burlará el adversario?
    ¿Para siempre insultará tu nombre el enemigo?
11 ¿Por qué retraes tu mano, tu mano derecha?
    ¿Por qué te quedas cruzado de brazos?

12 Tú, oh Dios, eres mi rey desde tiempos antiguos;
    tú traes salvación sobre la tierra.
13 Tú dividiste el mar con tu poder;
    les rompiste la cabeza a los monstruos marinos.
14 Tú aplastaste las cabezas de Leviatán
    y lo diste por comida a las jaurías del desierto.
15 Tú hiciste que brotaran fuentes y arroyos;
    secaste ríos de inagotables corrientes.
16 Tuyo es el día, tuya también la noche;
    tú estableciste la luna y el sol;
17 trazaste los límites de la tierra,
    y creaste el verano y el invierno.

18 Recuerda, Señor, que tu enemigo se burla,
    y que un pueblo insensato ofende tu nombre.
19 No entregues a las fieras
    la vida de tu tórtola;
no te olvides, ni ahora ni nunca,
    de la vida de tus pobres.
20 Ten en cuenta tu pacto,
    pues en todos los rincones del país
    abunda la violencia.
21 Que no vuelva humillado el oprimido;
    que alaben tu nombre el pobre y el necesitado.

22 Levántate, oh Dios, y defiende tu causa;
    recuerda que a todas horas te ofenden los necios.
23 No pases por alto el griterío de tus adversarios,
    el creciente tumulto de tus enemigos.

Psalm 74

An Appeal against the Devastation of the Land by the Enemy.

A [a]Maskil of Asaph.

1O God, why have You rejected us forever?
Why does Your anger smoke against the sheep of Your [b]pasture?
Remember Your congregation, which You have purchased of old,
Which You have redeemed to be the tribe of Your inheritance;
And this Mount Zion, where You have dwelt.
[c]Turn Your footsteps toward the perpetual ruins;
The enemy has damaged everything within the sanctuary.
Your adversaries have roared in the midst of Your meeting place;
They have set up their own [d]standards for signs.
It seems as if one had lifted up
His [e]axe in a [f]forest of trees.
And now [g]all its carved work
They smash with hatchet and [h]hammers.
They have [i]burned Your sanctuary [j]to the ground;
They have defiled the dwelling place of Your name.
They said in their heart, “Let us [k]completely [l]subdue them.”
They have burned all the meeting places of God in the land.
We do not see our signs;
There is no longer any prophet,
Nor is there any among us who knows how long.
10 How long, O God, will the adversary revile,
And the enemy spurn Your name forever?
11 Why do You withdraw Your hand, even Your right hand?
From within Your bosom, destroy them!

12 Yet God is my king from of old,
Who works deeds of deliverance in the midst of the earth.
13 [m]You divided the sea by Your strength;
[n]You broke the heads of the sea monsters [o]in the waters.
14 [p]You crushed the heads of [q]Leviathan;
[r]You gave him as food for the [s]creatures of the wilderness.
15 [t]You broke open springs and torrents;
[u]You dried up ever-flowing streams.
16 Yours is the day, Yours also is the night;
[v]You have prepared the [w]light and the sun.
17 [x]You have established all the boundaries of the earth;
[y]You have [z]made summer and winter.

18 Remember this, [aa]O Lord, that the enemy has reviled,
And a foolish people has spurned Your name.
19 Do not deliver the soul of Your turtledove to the wild beast;
Do not forget the life of Your afflicted forever.
20 Consider the covenant;
For the dark places of the land are full of the habitations of violence.
21 Let not the oppressed return dishonored;
Let the afflicted and needy praise Your name.

22 Arise, O God, and plead Your own cause;
Remember [ab]how the foolish man reproaches You all day long.
23 Do not forget the voice of Your adversaries,
The uproar of those who rise against You which ascends continually.
