Book of Psalms
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 plantedst them; how thou didst afflict the
people, and cast them out.
44:3 For they got not the land in possession by
their own sword, neither did their own arm save
them: but thy right hand, and thine arm, and the
light of thy countenance, because thou hadst a
favour unto them.
44:4 Thou art my King, O God: command deliverances
44:5 Through thee will we push down our enemies:
through thy name will we 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 which hate us spoil for themselves.
44:11 Thou hast given us like sheep appointed for
meat; and hast scattered us among the heathen.
44:12 Thou sellest thy people for nought, and dost
not increase thy wealth by their price.
44:13 Thou makest us a reproach to our neighbours, a
scorn and a derision to them that are round about
44:14 Thou makest us a byword 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 have we not
forgotten thee, neither have we dealt falsely in thy
44:18 Our heart is not turned back, neither have our
steps declined from thy way;
44:19 Though thou hast sore broken us in the place
of dragons, and covered us with the shadow of death.
44:20 If we have forgotten the name of our God, or
stretched out our hands to a strange god;
44:21 Shall not God search this out? for he knoweth
the secrets of the heart.
44:22 Yea, 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 Wherefore 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 unto the earth.
44:26 Arise for our help, and redeem us for thy
