Excerpt: ... Remember this, the enemy hath reproached the Lord: and a foolish people hath provoked thy name. 73:19. Deliver not up to beasts the souls that confess to thee: and forget not to the end the souls of thy poor. 73:20. Have regard to thy covenant: for they that are the obscure of the earth have been filled with dwellings of iniquity. The obscure of the earth. Mean and ignoble wretches have been filled, that is, enriched, with houses of iniquity, that is, with our estates and possessions, which they have unjustly acquired. 73:21. Let not the humble be turned away with confusion: the poor and needy shall praise thy name. 73:22. Arise, O God, judge thy own cause: remember thy reproaches with which the foolish man hath reproached thee all the day. 73:23. Forget not the voices of thy enemies: the pride of them that hate thee ascendeth continually. Psalms Chapter 74 Confitebimur tibi. There is a just judgment to come: therefore let the wicked take care. 74:1. Unto the end, corrupt not, a psalm of a canticle for Asaph. Corrupt not. It is believed to have been the beginning of some ode or hymn, to the tune of which this psalm was to be sung. St. Augustine and other fathers take it to be an admonition of the spirit of God, not to faint or fail in our hope: but to persevere with constancy in good: because God will not fail in his due time to render to every man according to his works. 74:2. We will praise thee, O God: we will praise, and we will call upon thy name. We will relate thy wondrous works: 74:3. When I shall take a time, I will judge justices. When I shall take a time. In proper times: particularly at the last day, when the earth shall melt away at the presence of the great Judge: the same who originally laid the foundations of it, and as it were established its pillars. 74:4. The earth is melted, and all that dwell therein: I have established the pillars thereof. 74:5. I said to the wicked: Do not act wickedly: and to the sinners: Lift not up more
