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