Psalms 44

The Church, in memory of former favours,

Psalms 44:1 {For the Chief Musician. [A Psalm] of 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 days of old. Psalms 44:2 Thou didst drive out the nations with thy hand; But them thou didst plant: Thou didst afflict the peoples; But them thou didst spread abroad. Psalms 44:3 For they gat 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 wast favorable unto them. Psalms 44:4 Thou art my King, O God: Command deliverance for Jacob. Psalms 44:5 Through thee will we push down our adversaries: Through thy name will we tread them under that rise up against us. Psalms 44:6 For I will not trust in my bow, Neither shall my sword save me.

complaineth of her present evils.

Psalms 44:7 But thou hast saved us from our adversaries, And hast put them to shame that hate us. Psalms 44:8 In God have we made our boast all the day long, And we will give thanks unto thy name for ever. Selah. Psalms 44:9 But now thou hast cast [us] off, and brought us to dishonor, And goest not forth with our hosts. Psalms 44:10 Thou makest us to turn back from the adversary; And they that hate us take spoil for themselves. Psalms 44:11 Thou hast made us like sheep [appointed] for food, And hast scattered us among the nations. Psalms 44:12 Thou sellest thy people for nought, And hast not increased [thy wealth] by their price. Psalms 44:13 Thou makest us a reproach to our neighbors, A scoffing and a derision to them that are round about us. Psalms 44:14 Thou makest us a byword among the nations, A shaking of the head among the peoples. Psalms 44:15 All the day long is my dishonor before me, And the shame of my face hath covered me, Psalms 44:16 For the voice of him that reproacheth and blasphemeth, By reason of the enemy and the avenger.

Professing her integrity,

Psalms 44:17 All this is come upon us; Yet have we not forgotten thee, Neither have we dealt falsely in thy covenant. Psalms 44:18 Our heart is not turned back, Neither have our steps declined from thy way, Psalms 44:19 That thou hast sore broken us in the place of jackals, And covered us with the shadow of death. Psalms 44:20 If we have forgotten the name of our God, Or spread forth our hands to a strange god; Psalms 44:21 Will not God search this out? For he knoweth the secrets of the heart. Psalms 44:22 Yea, for thy sake are we killed all the day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Psalms 44:23 Awake, why sleepest thou, O Lord? Arise, cast [us] not off for ever.

she fervently prayeth for succour.

Psalms 44:24 Wherefore hidest thou thy face, And forgettest our affliction and our oppression? Psalms 44:25 For our soul is bowed down to the dust: Our body cleaveth unto the earth. Psalms 44:26 Rise up for our help, And redeem us for thy lovingkindness' sake.
