Psalm 44 ©
1 The church calling to mind former favours, 9 complaineth of present evils: 17 professing her integrity, 23 she fervently prayeth for succour.
To the chief Musician for athe sons of Korah, Maschil.
For dthey got not the land in possession by their own sword, neither did their own arm save them: but thy right hand, and thine arm, and ethe light of thy countenance, because thou hadst a favour unto them.
For jI will not trust in my bow, neither shall my sword save me.
Thou ohast given us 1like sheep appointed for meat; and hast pscattered us among the heathen.
My tconfusion is continually before me, and the shame of my face hath covered me,
Yea, gfor thy sake are we killed all the day long; we are counted as sheep for the slaughter.
For jour soul is bowed down to the dust: our belly cleaveth unto the earth.
Arise 4for our help, and redeem us for thy mercies' sake.
