Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Psalms 74:9

_ _ signs — of God’s presence, as altar, ark, etc. (compare Psalms 74:4; 2 Chronicles 36:18, 2 Chronicles 36:19; Daniel 5:2).

_ _ no more any prophet — (Isaiah 3:2; Jeremiah 40:1; Jeremiah 43:6).

_ _ how long — this is to last. Jeremiah’s prophecy (Jeremiah 25:11), if published, may not have been generally known or understood. To the bulk of the people, during the captivity, the occasional and local prophetical services of Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and Daniel would not make an exception to the clause, “there is no more any prophet.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Psalms 74:1-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Psalms 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.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Psalms 74:9

We see not our signs: [there is] no more any prophet: neither [is there] among us any that knoweth (f) how long.

(f) They lamented that they had no prophet among them to show them how long their misery would last.
