Psalm 74:12-14 Evangelical Heritage Version (EHV)

God’s Past Goodness

12 But you, O God, are my king from long ago,
the one who works salvation right here on earth.
13 It was you who shattered the sea by your power.
You broke the heads of the great sea monsters.
14 It was you who crushed the heads of Leviathan.[a]
You gave him as food to the people who live in the desert.


  1. Psalm 74:14 Leviathan is a sea monster with many heads. Here it seems to be a symbol of the power of the sea.
