Psalms 44

The Church, in memory of former favours,

Psalms 44:1 {To the Chief Musician. For the Sons of Korah. An Instructive Psalm.} O God! with our own ears, have we heard, Our fathers, have recounted to us,—The work thou didst work, In their day, In the days of aforetime: Psalms 44:2 Thou thyself, with thine own hand—Didst dispossess, nations, and didst plant them, Didst break peoples in pieces, and didst spread them out: Psalms 44:3 For, not by their own sword, gat they possession of the land, Nor did, their own arm, win victory for them,—But thine own right hand, and thine own arm, and the light of thy face, Because thou hadst accepted them. Psalms 44:4 Thou thyself, art my king, O God, Command thou the victories of Jacob. Psalms 44:5 By thee, will we thrust at, our adversaries, In thy Name, will we tread down our assailants; Psalms 44:6 For, not in my bow, will I trust, Nor shall, my sword, give me victory;

complaineth of her present evils.

Psalms 44:7 For thou hast saved us from our adversaries, And, them who hated us, hast thou put to shame. Psalms 44:8 In God, have we boasted all the day, And, thy Name—unto times age-abiding, will we praise. [Selah.] Psalms 44:9 But nay thou hast rejected, and confounded us, And wilt not go forth with our hosts; Psalms 44:10 Thou sufferest us to turn back from the adversary, And, they who hate us, have plundered at will: Psalms 44:11 Thou dost give us up like sheep to be devoured, And, amongst the nations, hast thou scattered us. Psalms 44:12 Thou dost sell thy people for, no-value, And hast not made increase by their price. Psalms 44:13 Thou dost make us, A reproach to our neighbours, A mockery and a derision to them who are round about us: Psalms 44:14 Thou dost make us, A by-word among the nations,—A shaking of the head among the peoples. Psalms 44:15 All the day, is my confusion before me, And, the shame of my face, hath covered me: Psalms 44:16 At the voice of him who reproacheth and revileth, At the face of the foe and avenger.

Professing her integrity,

Psalms 44:17 All this, hath come upon us, Yet had we not forgotten thee, Neither had we dealt falsely with thy covenant; Psalms 44:18 Our heart had not drawn back, Nor had our goings swerved from thy path; Psalms 44:19 That thou shouldst have crushed us down in the place of wild dogs, And covered us over with a deadly shadow. Psalms 44:20 If we had forgotten the Name of our God, And had spread forth our hands unto the GOD of the foreigner, Psalms 44:21 Would not, God, have searched into this, Seeing that, he, knoweth the secrets of the heart? Psalms 44:22 Surely, for thy sake, have we been slain all the day, We have been accounted as sheep for slaughter. Psalms 44:23 Awake thou! wherefore shouldst thou sleep, O Lord? Bestir thee! do not reject us altogether!

she fervently prayeth for succour.

Psalms 44:24 Wherefore shouldst thou hide, thy face? Shouldst forget our humiliation and our oppression? Psalms 44:25 For our soul, sinketh down to the dust, Our body, cleaveth to the earth. Psalms 44:26 Arise to our help, And ransom us, because of thine own lovingkindness.
