We have no leaders (Ps 74:9-74:11)

“We do not see our emblems.

There is no longer any prophet.

There is none among us

Who knows how long.

How long?

O God!

Is the foe to scoff?

Is the enemy to revile your name forever?

Why do you hold back your hand?

Why do you keep your hand in your bosom?”

This is one of the few times when the Israelites seem to be without any leaders. Obviously the king was gone. Their emblems were not on display. There does not seem to be any prophets. No one seemed to know how long this was going to last. How long would the foes scoff at them? How long would they revile the name of God? Why did God keep his hand at this chest instead of striking down these foes? These were very serious questions.
