Psalm 44

44:1 To the chiefe Musician for the sonnes of Korah. Wee haue heard with our eares, O God, our fathers haue told vs, what worke thou didst in their dayes, in the times of old. 44:2 How thou didst driue out the heathen with thy hand, & plantedst them; how thou didst afflict the people, and cast them out. 44:3 For they got not the land in possession by their owne sword, neither did their owne arme saue them: but thy right hand, and thine arme, and the light of thy countenance, because thou hadst a fauour vnto them. 44:4 Thou art my King, O God: command deliuerances for Iacob. 44:5 Through thee will wee push downe our enemies: through thy Name will wee tread them vnder that rise vp against vs. 44:6 For I will not trust in my bow, neither shall my sword saue me. 44:7 But thou hast saued vs from our enemies, and hast put them to shame that hated vs. 44:8 In God we boast all the day long: and praise thy Name for euer. Selah. 44:9 But thou hast cast off and put vs to shame; and goest not forth with our armies. 44:10 Thou makest vs to turne backe from the enemie: and they which hate vs, spoile for themselues. 44:11 Thou hast giuen vs like sheepe appointed for meate: and hast scattered vs among the heathen. 44:12 Thou sellest thy people for nought, and doest not increase thy wealth by their price. 44:13 Thou makest vs a reproch to our neighbours, a scorne and a derision to them that are round about vs. 44:14 Thou makest vs 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 couered me. 44:16 For the voice of him that reproacheth, and blasphemeth: by reason of the enemie and auenger. 44:17 All this is come vpon vs; yet haue wee not forgotten thee, neither haue we dealt falsly in thy couenant. 44:18 Our heart is not turned backe: neither haue our steps declined from thy way, 44:19 Though thou hast sore broken vs in the place of dragons, and couered vs with the shadow of death. 44:20 If wee haue 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 wee killed all the day long: wee are counted as sheepe for the slaughter. 44:23 Awake, why sleepest thou, O Lord arise, cast vs not off for euer. 44:24 Wherefore hidest thou thy face and forgettest our affliction, and our oppression 44:25 For our soule is bowed downe to the dust; our belly cleaueth vnto the earth. 44:26 Arise for our helpe, and redeeme vs for thy mercies sake.
