Psalms 44


44:1 To the chief Musician for the sons of Korah, Maschil. We
 have heard with our ears, O God, our fathers have told us,
 [what] work thou didst in their days, in the times of old.
44:2 [How] thou didst drive out the heathen with thy hand, and
 didst plant them; [how] thou didst afflict the people, and cast
 them out.
44:3 For they obtained not the land in possession by their own
 sword, neither did their own arm save them: but thy right hand,
 and thy arm, and the light of thy countenance, because thou
 hadst a favor to them.
44:4 Thou art my King, O God: command deliverances for Jacob.
44:5 Through thee will we push down our enemies: through thy
 name we will tread them under that rise up against us.
44:6 For I will not trust in my bow, neither shall my sword save
 me.
44:7 But thou hast saved us from our enemies, and hast put them
 to shame that hated us.
44:8 In God we boast all the day long, and praise thy name for
 ever. Selah.
44:9 But thou hast cast off, and put us to shame; and goest not
 forth with our armies.
44:10 Thou makest us to turn back from the enemy: and they who
 hate us plunder for themselves.
44:11 Thou hast given us like sheep [appointed] for food; and
 hast scattered us among the heathen.
44:12 Thou sellest thy people for naught, and dost not increase
 [thy wealth] by their price.
44:13 Thou makest us a reproach to our neighbors, a scorn and a
 derision to them that are around us.
44:14 Thou makest us a by-word among the heathen, a shaking of
 the head among the people.
44:15 My confusion [is] continually before me, and the shame of
 my face hath covered me,
44:16 For the voice of him that reproacheth and blasphemeth; by
 reason of the enemy and avenger.
44:17 All this is come upon us; yet we have not forgotten thee,
 neither have we dealt falsely in thy covenant.
44:18 Our heart is not turned back, neither have our steps
 declined from thy way;
44:19 Though thou hast severely broke us in the place of
 dragons, and covered us with the shades of death.
44:20 If we have forgotten the name of our God, or stretched out
 our hands to a strange god;
44:21 Will not God search out this? for he knoweth the secrets
 of the heart.
44:22 Yes, for thy sake are we killed all the day long; we are
 counted as sheep for the slaughter.
44:23 Awake, why sleepest thou, O LORD? arise, cast [us] not off
 for ever.
44:24 Why hidest thou thy face, [and] forgettest our affliction
 and our oppression?
44:25 For our soul is bowed down to the dust: our belly cleaveth
 to the earth.
44:26 Arise for our help, and redeem us for thy mercies' sake.
