Psalms 74:9-10

Context

74:9 We do not see any signs of God’s presence; 1 

there are no longer any prophets 2 

and we have no one to tell us how long this will last. 3 

74:10 How long, O God, will the adversary hurl insults?

Will the enemy blaspheme your name forever?

1 tn Heb “our signs we do not see.” Because of the reference to a prophet in the next line, it is likely that the “signs” in view here include the evidence of God’s presence as typically revealed through the prophets. These could include miraculous acts performed by the prophets (see, for example, Isa 38:7-8) or object lessons which they acted out (see, for example, Isa 20:3).

2 tn Heb “there is not still a prophet.”

3 tn Heb “and [there is] not with us one who knows how long.”
