Psalms 44
New Living Translation
44[For the choir director: A psalm of the descendants of Korah.] O God, we have heard it with our own ears—our ancestors have told us of all you did in their day, in days long ago.H5329H1121H7141H4905H8085H241H430H1H5608H6467H6466H3117H3117H6924 2You drove out the pagan nations by your power and gave all the land to our ancestors. You crushed their enemies and set our ancestors free.H3423H1471H3027H5193H7489H3816H7971 3They did not conquer the land with their swords; it was not their own strong arm that gave them victory. It was your right hand and strong arm and the blinding light from your face that helped them, for you loved them.H3423H776H3423H2719H2220H3467H3225H2220H216H6440H7521 4You are my King and my God. You command victories for Israel.H4428H430H6680H3444H3290 5Only by your power can we push back our enemies; only in your name can we trample our foes.H5055H6862H8034H947H6965 6I do not trust in my bow; I do not count on my sword to save me.H982H7198H2719H3467 7You are the one who gives us victory over our enemies; you disgrace those who hate us.H3467H6862H954H8130 8O God, we give glory to you all day long and constantly praise your name. InterludeH430H1984H3117H3034H8034H5769H5542 9But now you have tossed us aside in dishonor. You no longer lead our armies to battle.H637H2186H3637H3318H6635 10You make us retreat from our enemies and allow those who hate us to plunder our land.H7725H268H6862H8130H8154 11You have butchered us like sheep and scattered us among the nations.H5414H6629H3978H2219H1471 12You sold your precious people for a pittance, making nothing on the sale.H4376H5971H1952H7235H4242 13You let our neighbors mock us. We are an object of scorn and derision to those around us.H7760H2781H7934H3933H7047H5439 14You have made us the butt of their jokes; they shake their heads at us in scorn.H7760H4912H1471H4493H7218H3816 15We can't escape the constant humiliation; shame is written across our faces.H3639H3117H1322H6440H3680 16All we hear are the taunts of our mockers. All we see are our vengeful enemies.H6963H2778H1442H6440H341H5358 17All this has happened though we have not forgotten you. We have not violated your covenant.H935H7911H8266H1285 18Our hearts have not deserted you. We have not strayed from your path.H3820H5472H268H838H5186H734 19Yet you have crushed us in the jackal's desert home. You have covered us with darkness and death.H1794H4725H8577H3680H6757 20If we had forgotten the name of our God or spread our hands in prayer to foreign gods,H7911H8034H430H6566H3709H2114H410 21God would surely have known it, for he knows the secrets of every heart.H430H2713H3045H8587H3820 22But for your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep.H2026H3117H2803H6629H2878 23Wake up, O Lord! Why do you sleep? Get up! Do not reject us forever.H5782H3462H136H6974H2186H5331 24Why do you look the other way? Why do you ignore our suffering and oppression?H5641H6440H7911H6040H3906 25We collapse in the dust, lying face down in the dirt.H5315H7743H6083H990H1692H776 26Rise up! Help us! Ransom us because of your unfailing love.H6965H5833H6299H2617
