Abstract This article is an attempt to understand the concept !Jerit in Psalm 74:20. Several possibilities regarding its significance and content were discussed by various biblical scholars. The vague reference to berit makes a convincing solution in this regard very difficult. A combination of allusions and motives in the Psalm which coincide with aspects of the Yahweh-David berit, strengthens the assumption that הבט לברית (v 20) alludes to the loyalty and faithfulness of Yahweh which he promised in the !Jerit with his servant David.
