Psalms 74:21-23


74:21 Do not let the afflicted be turned back in shame!

Let the oppressed and poor praise your name! 1 

74:22 Rise up, O God! Defend your honor! 2 

Remember how fools insult you all day long! 3 

74:23 Do not disregard 4  what your enemies say, 5 

or the unceasing shouts of those who defy you. 6 

1 sn Let the oppressed and poor praise your name! The statement is metonymic. The point is this: May the oppressed be delivered from their enemies! Then they will have ample reason to praise God’s name.

2 tn Or “defend your cause.”

3 tn Heb “remember your reproach from a fool all the day.”

4 tn Or “forget.”

5 tn Heb “the voice of your enemies.”

6 tn Heb “the roar of those who rise up against you, which ascends continually.”
