[Diocese of Mauritius - Indian Ocean] Psa 74:1 Why have you abandoned us like this, O God? Will you be angry with your own people forever?
Psa 74:2 Remember your people, whom you chose for yourself long ago, whom you brought out of slavery to be your own tribe. Remember Mount Zion, where once you lived.
Psa 74:3 Walk over these total ruins; our enemies have destroyed everything in the Temple.
Psa 74:4 Your enemies have shouted in triumph in your Temple; they have placed their flags there as signs of victory.
Psa 74:5 They looked like woodsmen cutting down trees with their axes.
Psa 74:6 They smashed all the wooden panels with their axes and sledge hammers.
Psa 74:7 They wrecked your Temple and set it on fire; they desecrated the place where you are worshiped.
Psa 74:8 They wanted to crush us completely; they burned down every holy place in the land.
Psa 74:9 All our sacred symbols are gone; there are no prophets left, and no one knows how long this will last.
Psa 74:10 How long, O God, will our enemies laugh at you? Will they insult your name forever?
Psa 74:11 Why have you refused to help us? Why do you keep your hands behind you?
Psa 74:12 But you have been our king from the beginning, O God; you have saved us many times.
