Bible Commentary for Psalms 74:9

Wesley's Notes for Psalms 74:9


74:9 Signs - Those tokens of God's gracious presence, which we used to enjoy. The temple and ark, and sacrifices, and solemn feasts, were signs between God and his people. Prophet - Who can foretell things to come. Probably Ezekiel and Jeremiah were dead when this psalm was composed; and David was involved in civil affairs, and did not teach the people as a prophet. Knoweth - How long their captivity should continue.


Discussion for Psalms 74:9

  • Timothy Wayne George on Psalms 74:9
    Israel is currently in the midst of apostasy, and they can not see the signs anywhere, neither is there any prophet to warn them of impending danger. The Psalmist looks to the day when Jesus Christ will return as King of Kings, and Lord of Lords. The poor and the needy will finally receive the justice that they deserve. Even so come Lord Jesus. Take heed, watch, and pray for you know not when your Lord shall come.
