    Lord, do not forget your afflicted people!

    Psalm 74 is a communal prayer of lament. The community is persecuted and oppressed by violent neighbors. Similar prayer of lament is seen in the book of prophets for the loss of land and Temple. Psalm recalls the fall of Jerusalem and the destruction of the Temple by the Babylonians in 587 BCE. Psalm also echoes the
    desecration of the Temple by Greek ruler Antiochus IV in 168 BCE during the Maccabean period. Though the Temple, God’s sanctuary, is destroyed, people hopefully await God to act on behalf of them. They keep faith even as they experience absence of God in their struggles; they wouldn’t let God go. The enemies of the people scorn, revile their devotion to God. Psalmist hopes: just as God created the world from primordial chaos, he would create the people anew as a nation and restore their dignity/honor as people set apart to witness God’s reign on earth!
