Psalms 74:1 <Maschil of Asaph.> O God, why have you cast us off forever? why does your anger smoke against the sheep of your pasture?

Psalms 74:2 Remember thy congregation, which you have purchased of old.(what did God use {Isaiah 43:3-6} in 'purchasing' {1Peter 2:9} the ancient Israelites?); the rod of thine inheritance, which you have redeemed; this mount Zion, wherein thou hast dwelt.

Psalms 74:12 For God is my King of old, working salvation in the midst of the Earth.

Psalms 74:13 You did divide the sea by your strength. You brake the heads of the dragons in the waters.

Psalms 74:14 You brake the heads of leviathan.(Job 41:1-9).in pieces and gave him to be meat to the people inhabiting the wilderness.

Psalms 74:19 O deliver not the soul of thy turtledove unto the multitude of the wicked. Forget not the congregation of your poor forever.

Psalms 74:20 Have respect unto the covenant, for the dark places of the Earth are full of the habitations of cruelty.
Psalms 74:20 Have respect unto the covenant.(or, be committed to what you agreed to; comprised from Barnes Notes: The prayer here is, that Creator-God would remember, in the day of calamity, the solemn promise implied in that ancient covenant made to Abraham and that he would interpose to save his people:.Luke 1:72,73), for the dark places.(the darkness of the Earth refers to those highly influenced by the dark side and the darkness, both spiritually and physically in the DUMBs and tunnels of the Earth, the beings there and on the Earth's surface whose thoughts and actions result in cruelty and death toward others:.Proverbs 4:19. Who is behind them?.Ephesians 6:12).of the Earth are full of the habitations of cruelty.

Psalms 74:20 is a promise of protection from the horrors of the DUMBS, tunnels and cities beneath the Earth, where horrible satanic things are done to people by satanists.

Psalms 75:1 <To the chief Musician, Altaschith, A Psalm or Song of Asaph.> Unto you, O God, do we give thanks, unto you do we give thanks for that your name is near. Your wondrous works declare it.

Psalms 75:6,7 For promotion comes neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. But God is the judge. He puts down one and sets up another.

Psalms 76:1 <To the chief Musician on Neginoth, A Psalm or Song of Asaph.> In Judah is God known. His name is great in Israel.

Psalms 76:10 Surely the wrath of man shall praise thee. The remainder of wrath shall you restrain.
Matthew Henry's Commentary: When God allows people who by their own free choice, get into trouble (Isaiah 10:3-7), it is to allow the why of it to come into their memory, so they can see what caused their trouble, that is, unless they are dumber than a bag of hammers. Often it's because they needed humbling and awakening, so life for them plays out their decisions. When these points are gained by the affliction, the trouble can be removed. God is merciful:.Romans 8:28; 1Corinthians 10:13.
Psalms 77:1 To the chief Musician, to Jeduthun, A Psalm of Asaph. I cried unto God with my voice, even unto God with my voice and he gave ear unto me.

Psalms 77:2 In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord. My sore ran in the night and ceased not. My soul refused to be comforted. I remembered God and was troubled.

Psalms 77:3 I remembered God and was troubled. I complained and my spirit was overwhelmed. Selah.

Psalms 77:4 You hold mine eyes waking. I am so troubled that I cannot speak.
Barnes Notes: God was kept strongly before his mind, that such ideas occurred to him in regard to God, that he could not sleep. He was so troubled with sad and deep views of God (Ephesians 3:19) so troubled in endeavoring to comprehend God's character and doings and in explaining his own acts, the painful ideas that suggest themselves in regard to God's justice, his goodness and his mercy.

If grieving and this scripture seems to apply to you.

Psalms 77:5 I have considered the days of old, the years of ancient times.

Psalms 77:6 I call to remembrance my song in the night. I commune with mine own heart and my spirit made diligent search.

Psalms 77:7,8.Will the Lord cast off for ever? and will he be favourable no more? Is his mercy clean gone for ever? Does his promise fail for evermore?

Psalms 77:9 Has God forgotten to be gracious? Has he in anger shut up his tender mercies? Selah.

Psalms 77:11 I will remember the works of the Lord. Surely I will remember your wonders of old.

Psalms 77:12,13 I will meditate also of all your work and talk of your doings. Your way, O God, is in the sanctuary.(the way of God is found where He is and He is in the silence). Who is so great a God as our God?

Psalms 77:14 You are the God that does wonders. You have declared your strength among the people.

Psalms 77:15,16 You have with your arm redeemed your people, the sons of Jacob and Joseph. Selah. The waters saw you, O God, the waters saw you and were afraid. The depths also were troubled.

Psalms 77:17 You have set all the borders.(original is 'coasts').of the Earth. You have made summer and winter.

Psalms 77:19 Your way is in the sea and your path in the great waters and your footsteps are not known.

Psalms 78:1-3 <Maschil of Asaph> Give ear, O my people, to my law. Incline your ears to the words of my mouth. I will open my mouth in a parable. I will utter dark sayings of old, Which we have heard and known and our fathers have told us.
This prophecy.fulfilled by Emmanuel:.Matthew 13:35.
Psalms 78:4-6 We will not hide them from their children, showing to the generation to come the praises of the Lord and his strength and his wonderful works that he has done. For he established a testimony in Jacob and appointed a law in Israel, which he commanded our fathers, that they should make them known to their children, that the generation to come might know them, even the children which should be born, who should arise and declare them even to their children, 

Psalms 78:7 That they might set their hope in God and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments.(but, which ones are for today?).

Psalms 78:8 And might not be as their fathers, a stubborn and rebellious generation; a generation that set not their heart aright and whose spirit was not stedfast with God.
Psalms 78:8 And might not be as their fathers, a stubborn.(refusing to do what one knows is in his or another's best interest).and rebellious generation.(Jeremiah 44:16,17); a generation that set not their heart aright.(on setting your heart and how do you do that? note that we have to set our own heart in the direction that allows the high consciousness of the Creator to be active in us).and whose spirit was not stedfast.(Matthew 7:24-27; some angels were the same).with God.
Psalms 78:9 The children of Ephraim, being armed and carrying bows, turned back in the day of battle.
Comprised with.Barnes Notes: the largest tribe, Ephraim, refused to join in with the family tribes of Judah and Benjamin when they needed the huge tribe of Ephraim.
Psalms 78:10-16 They.(speaking of Ephraim, the largest tribe of the family).kept not the covenant of God and refused to walk in his law; And forgot his works and his wonders that he had showed them. Marvellous things did he in the sight of their fathers in the land of Egypt and in the nearby field of Zoan. He divided the sea and caused them to pass through and he made the waters to stand as an heap. In the daytime also he led them with a cloud and all the night with a light of fire. He clave the rocks in the wilderness and gave them drink as out of the great depths. He brought streams also out of the rock and caused waters to run down like rivers.

Psalms 78:17-20 And they sinned yet more against him by provoking the most High in the wilderness. And they tempted God in their heart by asking meat for their lust. Yea, they spake against God. They said, Can God furnish a table in the wilderness? Behold, he smote the rock that the waters gushed out and the streams overflowed. Can he give bread also? can he provide flesh for his people? 

Psalms 78:21,22 Therefore the Lord heard this and was wroth, so a fire was kindled against Jacob and anger also came up against Israel, because they believed not in God and trusted not in his salvation.

Psalms 78:23,24 Though he had commanded the clouds from above and opened the doors of heaven and had rained down manna upon them to eat and had given them of the corn of heaven.

Psalms 78:25 Man did eat angels' food. He sent them meat.(original is 'food').to the full..(?)

Psalms 78:26 He caused an east wind to blow in the heaven and by his power he brought in the south wind.

Psalms 78:27 He rained flesh also upon them as dust.(Barnes Notes: dust means here 'in great abundance').and feathered fowls.(Exodus 16:13).like as the sand of the sea.
Barnes Notes: 'like as the sand of the sea' is another expression denoting great numbers.
Psalms 78:28 And he let it fall in the midst of their camp, round about their habitations. 

Psalms 78:29 So they did eat and were well filled, for he gave them their own desire;

Psalms 78:30 They were not estranged from their lust. But while their meat was yet in their mouths,

Psalms 78:31 The wrath of God came upon them and slew the fattest of them and smote down the chosen men of Israel.

Psalms 78:32-36 For all this they sinned still and believed not for his wondrous works. Therefore their days did he consume in vanity and their years in trouble. When he slew them, then they sought him and they returned and enquired early after God.("early after God"; when they were in trouble they always turned back to God, but only until the trouble was gone;."If God were proud He would hardly have us on such terms, but He is not proud, He stoops to conquer, He will have us even though we have shown that we prefer everything else to Him.{Jeremiah 44:16,17}.and come to Him because there is nothing better now to be had.....C.S. Lewis book Problem of Pain, p85."). And they remembered that God was their rock and the high God their redeemer. Nevertheless they did flatter him.(2Timothy 3:5).with their mouth and they lied unto him with their tongues.
Why is humanity like this? They live their own life as they feel, don't want God in it, until their own ways get them into trouble and then they cry for the help of God, who always answers.
Psalms 78:37 For their heart was not right with him, neither were they stedfast in his covenant.
A covenant is an agreement. Ancient Israel made an agreement with the Creator back then.
Psalms 78:38 But he, being full of compassion, forgave their iniquity and destroyed them not. Yea, many a time turned he his anger away and did not stir up all his wrath.

Psalms 78:39 For he remembered that they were but flesh, a wind that passes away and comes not again.
Original for "passes away and comes not again" is "walks away and later returns".
Psalms 78:40.How oft did they provoke him in the wilderness.(when the ancient Israelites came out of bondage in Egypt and were on their way to a new land).and grieve him in the desert! Yea, they turned back and tempted God and limited the Holy One of Israel. They remembered not his hand, nor the day when he delivered them from the enemy. How he had wrought his signs in Egypt and his wonders in the field of Zoan. And had turned their rivers into blood and their floods, that they could not drink.

Psalms 78:41,42 Yea, they turned back.(Numbers 21:5).and tempted God.(failed to believe God would look after them).and limited the Holy One of Israel. They remembered not his hand, nor the day when he delivered them from the enemy.

Psalms 78:45 He sent divers.(original 'a mixture'; or, different).sorts of flies among them, which devoured them and frogs, which destroyed them.

Psalms 78:46 He gave also their increase unto the caterpiller and their labour unto the locust. 

Psalms 78:47 He destroyed their vines with hail and their sycomore trees with frost.

Psalms 78:48 He gave up their cattle also to the hail and their flocks to hot thunderbolts.

Psalms 78:49 He cast upon them the fierceness of his anger, wrath and indignation and trouble, by sending evil angels among them.

Psalms 78:50 He made a way to his anger. He spared not their soul from death, but gave their life over to the pestilence;

Psalms 78:51 And smote all the firstborn in Egypt; the chief of their strength in the tabernacles of Ham.

Psalms 78:52-55 But made his own people to go forth like sheep and guided them in the wilderness like a flock. And he led them on safely, so that they feared not, but the sea overwhelmed their enemies. And he brought them to the border of his sanctuary, even to this mountain, which his right hand had purchased. He cast out the heathen also before them and divided them an inheritance by line and made the tribes of Israel to dwell in their tents.

Psalms 78:56-61 Yet they tempted and provoked the most high God and kept not his testimonies, but turned back and dealt unfaithfully like their fathers. They were turned aside like a deceitful bow.(appeared as if they were on target for good, but weren't). For they provoked him to anger with their high places and moved him to jealousy with their graven images. God was aware of all this and he was wroth and greatly abhorred Israel, so that he forsook the tabernacle of Shiloh, the tent which he placed among men and delivered his strength into captivity and his glory into the enemy's hand.

Psalms 78:62-66 He gave his people over also unto the sword and was wroth with his inheritance. The fire consumed their young men and their maidens were not given to marriage.(original for word 'marriage' is 'not happy about this', that is, not happy the young men had gone). Their priests fell by the sword and their widows made no lamentation. Then the Lord awaked as one out of sleep and like a mighty man that shouteth by reason of wine. And he smote his enemies in the hinder parts. He put them to a perpetual reproach. 

Psalms 78:70-72 He chose David also his servant and took him from the sheepfolds.(David was a sheepherder). From following the ewes great with young he brought him to feed Jacob his people, and Israel his inheritance. So he fed them according to the integrity of his heart and guided them by the skilfulness of his hands.
David did the best job he knew how to do.
Psalms 79:1 <A Psalm of Asaph.> O God, the heathen are come into your inheritance; your holy temple have they defiled. They have laid Jerusalem on heaps.

Psalms 79:11 Let the sighing of the prisoner come before you and according to the greatness of your power preserve those that are appointed to die.
Psalms  79:11 Let the sighing.(original also provides 'lamenting').of the prisoner come before you.(be considered by you).and according to the greatness of your power.(according to what insight and ability you have to determine).preserve you.(original 'leave' 'save over').those that are appointed to die.

In other words, determine if one's crime is worthy of death or instead, just being ostracized from society, in order to protect others, as they did using cities of refuge in the Old Testament.

Today people are in their own ego prison.

Psalms 80:1 To the chief Musician upon Shoshannimeduth, A Psalm of Asaph. Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel, thou that leadest Joseph like a flock, thou that dwellest between the cherubims, shine forth.

Psalms 81:5,6 This he ordained in Joseph.('in Joseph?.Malachi 3:6).for a testimony, when he went out through the land of Egypt and heard a language that he knew not. I removed his shoulder from the burden. His hands were delivered from the pots.(from all the slaves had to do in Egypt)

Psalms 81:7 You called in trouble and I delivered you. I answered you in the secret place of thunder. I proved you at the waters of Meribah. Selah.

Psalms 81:8-10 Hear, O my people and I will testify to you. O Israel, if you would only hearken unto me.(but they had no heart to). There shall no strange God be in your nation, neither shall you worship any strange God.(but they did). I am the Lord your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt.(*). Open your mouth wide and I will fill it.

Psalms 81:11-13 But my people would not hearken to my voice and Israel would none of me. So I gave them up unto their own hearts lust.(original for word 'lust' here is 'imagination').and they walked in their own counsels. Oh that my people had hearkened unto me and Israel had walked in my ways!

Psalms 81:15 The haters of the Lord should have submitted themselves unto him and their time should have endured forever.

Psalms 82:1 <A Psalm of Asaph.> God stands in the congregation of the mighty. He judges among the Gods.

Psalms 82:2 How long will you judge unjustly by following those who are wicked? Selah

Provide for those under the boot of wicked people.
Psalms 82:5 They know not, neither do they want to know.(Hosea 4:17). They walk on in darkness. All the foundations of the Earth are out of course.(Amos 9:6).
Because low consciousness man has left off the knowledge of what Creator-God is all about and instead adopted such silly reasonings as the concepts.embodied in evolution as being his beginning of origins, man is still attempting to 'reinvent the wheel' with his efforts in tampering with food, health, the environment, our exchange systems, virtually, anything his attention may land on. Man is a tinkerer, not having learned what should be left alone that works and what should not be left alone that doesn't work well. Some of those things which portend.consequences:.Psalms 2:1-3; 53:1-4; Isaiah 1:4-7; 5:20,21,23.
Psalms 82:6 I have said, You are God.(humanity created in the energy we call God:.John 10:34).and all of you are children of the most High.
That is, all of humanity, not all of those appearing as people. What is this? All those of humanity genes and hopefully most of those with a mixture of humanity genes, have great things to look forward to:.1Corinthians 2:9
Psalms 82:8 Arise, O God, judge the Earth, for you shall inherit all nations.

Psalms 83:1 <A Song or Psalm of Asaph.> Keep not you silence, O God. Hold not your peace and be not still, O God.

Psalms 83:2 For lo, thine enemies make a tumult and they that hate you have lifted up the head.

Psalms 83:3 They have taken crafty counsel against your people and consulted against your hidden ones.(who are these hidden ones?.2Timothy 2:19).
JPS Translation.has it for 'hidden ones', 'treasured ones':.Psalms 135:4.
Psalms 83:4 They have said, Come and let us cut them off from being a nation, that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.

Psalms 83:5 For they have consulted together with one consent, they are confederate against you.

Psalms 83:6-11 The tabernacles of Edom and the Ishmaelites; of Moab and the Hagarenes; Gebal and Ammon and Amalek; the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre; Assur also is joined with them. They have holpen the children of Lot. Selah. Do unto them as unto the Midianites, as to Sisera, as to Jabin at the brook of Kison, which perished at Endor. They became as dung for the Earth. Make their nobles like Oreb and like Zeeb; yea, all their princes as Zebah and as Zalmunna.

Psalms 83:12 Who said, Let us take to ourselves the houses of God in possession.

Psalms 83:13-15 O my God, make them like the whirling dust, with the wind blowing the stubble away. As the fire burns wood and as the flame sets the mountains on fire, so persecute.(original is 'pursue', that is keep after them).them with your tempest.and make them afraid.(original is 'keep them disturbed').by your storm.
Isaiah 17:13.

The Psalmist is saying to cause them trials and tribulations as that seems to be the only way to awaken them. It takes storms in life for one to seek shelter:.Psalms 61:3; 18:2.

Psalms 83:16 Fill their faces with shame that they may seek your name, O Lord.
All that God may do is to awaken humans to the spiritual path available. Once awakened, it's up to each of us to reach toward a reward.
Psalms 83:17 Let them be confounded.(original for 'confounded' is 'ashamed').and troubled forever.(that is, until they awaken). Yea, let them be put to shame and perish.
In other words, leave them on the road to their destruction as it's the only way to awaken them and if they still won't awaken in this life, then ...
Psalms 83:18 That men may know that you, whose name alone is JEHOVAH.(or, the Lord, there are many names of God, Jehovah, being one of them), are the most high over all the Earth.(*).
