Psalms 44

The Church, in memory of former favours,

Psalms 44:1 {To the chiefe musition, a wise instruction of the sonnes of Corach.} We haue hearde with our eares O Lorde: our fathers haue tolde vs what workes thou hast done in their daies in the olde tyme. Psalms 44:2 Howe thou hast driuen out the heathen with thy hande and planted them in: howe thou hast destroyed the nations & placed them. Psalms 44:3 For they gat not the lande in possession through their owne sworde: neither was it their owne arme that saued them. But thy ryght hande, and thine arme, & the lyght of thy countenaunce: because thou hadst a fauour vnto them. Psalms 44:4 Thou art my kyng O Lorde: commaunde that Iacob be saued. Psalms 44:5 Through thee we wyll ouerthrowe our enemies: and in thy name we wyll treade them vnder that ryse vp agaynst vs. Psalms 44:6 For I wyll not trust in my bowe: and it is not my sworde that can saue me.

complaineth of her present evils.

Psalms 44:7 But it is thou that sauest vs from our enemies: and thou puttest them to confusion that hate vs. Psalms 44:8 We make our boast of God all the day long: and we wyll confesse thy name for euer. Selah. Psalms 44:9 But nowe thou art farre of, and thou puttest vs to confusion: neither goest thou foorth with our armies. Psalms 44:10 Thou makest vs to turne away backwarde from the enemie: so that they which hate vs, do make vs a spoyle vnto them. Psalms 44:11 Thou hast delyuered vs as sheepe to be eaten: and thou hast scattered vs among the heathen. Psalms 44:12 Thou hast solde thy people for naught: and thou hast taken no money for them. Psalms 44:13 Thou hast made vs a rebuke to our neighbours: to be laughed to scorne and had in derision of them that are rounde about vs. Psalms 44:14 Thou hast made vs [to be] a fable among the heathen: [and to be such] that the people shake their head at vs. Psalms 44:15 My confusion is dayly before me, and the shame of my face couereth me: Psalms 44:16 for [to heare] the voyce of the slaunderer & blasphemer, and for to see the enemie and the auenger.

Professing her integrity,

Psalms 44:17 [And though] all this be come vpon vs: [yet] we do not forget thee, nor shewe our selues to be false in thy couenaunt. Psalms 44:18 Our heart is not turned backe, neither our steppes be declined out of thy pathes: Psalms 44:19 no not when thou hast smitten vs in the place of dragons, and couered vs with the shadowe of death. Psalms 44:20 If we had forgotten the name of our Lorde, and holden vp our handes to any straunge god: Psalms 44:21 woulde not God searche it out? for he knoweth the very secretes of the heart. Psalms 44:22 For thy sake also are we kylled all the day long: and are counted as sheepe appoynted to be slayne. Psalms 44:23 Stirre vp O Lorde, why slepest thou? awake & be not absent from vs for euer:

she fervently prayeth for succour.

Psalms 44:24 wherfore hydest thou thy face, and forgettest our miserie and tribulation? Psalms 44:25 For our soule is brought lowe vnto the dust: our belly cleaueth vnto the grounde. Psalms 44:26 Aryse vp thou our ayde, and redeeme vs: for thy louyng kindnesse sake.
