Psalm 74 (Kathisma 10)
Read on Wednesday (Tuesday and Thursday during Lent)
For the End: Destroy not. A Canticle Psalm for Asaph.
(Psalm 75 - Hebrew Numbering)
We will confess Thee, O God, we will confess Thee, and we will call upon Thy name.
I will tell of all Thy wonders.
When I am given the appointed time, I will judge uprightly.
The earth is melted and all that dwell therein; it is I that made steadfast the pillars thereof.
I said to the transgressors: Do not transgress; and to the sinners: Lift not up the horn. Lift not up your horn on high, and speak not unrighteousness against God.
For judgment cometh not from the byways, nor from the west, nor from the desert mountains; for God is judge.
This man He humbleth, and another He exalteth; for in the hand of the Lord there is a brimming cup of unmingled wine.
And He hath inclined it from side to side, but the dregs thereof were not fully emptied out; all the sinners of the earth shall drink of them.
But as for me, I will rejoice for ever; I will chant unto the God of Jacob.
And all the horns of the sinners will I break, but the horn of the righteous man shall be exalted.
