Cry to Yahweh (Ps 74:18-74:19)

“Remember this!


How the enemy scoffs!

An impious people revile your name.

Do not deliver the soul of your dove

To the wild beasts!

Do not forget

The life of your poor forever!”

This was a cry to Yahweh. He had to remember his dove. The enemy was scoffing at them. These impious people were reviling the name of God. They did not want to be sent to the wild beasts. Asaph, the psalmist, wanted Yahweh to remember and not forget the poor people of his chosen ones.
