Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 44:1 - {To the chief Musician. Of the sons of Korah. An instruction.} O God, with our ears have we heard, our fathers have told us, the work thou wroughtest in their days, in the days of old:
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 44:2 - Thou, by thy hand, didst dispossess the nations, but them thou didst plant; thou didst afflict the peoples, but them didst thou cause to spread out.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 44:3 - For not by their own sword did they take possession of the land, neither did their own arm save them; but thy right hand, and thine arm, and the light of thy countenance, because thou hadst delight in them.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 44:4 - Thou thyself art my king, O God: command deliverance for Jacob.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 44:5 - Through thee will we push down our adversaries; through thy name will we tread them under that rise up against us.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 44:6 - For I will not put confidence in my bow, neither shall my sword save me.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 44:7 - For thou hast saved us from our adversaries, and hast put them to shame that hate us.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 44:8 - In God will we boast all the day, and we will praise thy name for ever. Selah.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 44:9 - But thou hast cast off, and put us to confusion, and dost not go forth with our armies;
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 44:10 - Thou hast made us to turn back from the adversary, and they that hate us spoil for themselves;
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 44:11 - Thou hast given us over like sheep appointed for meat, and hast scattered us among the nations;
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 44:12 - Thou hast sold thy people for nought, and hast not increased thy wealth by their price;
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 44:13 - Thou makest us a reproach to our neighbours, a mockery and a derision for them that are round about us;
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 44:14 - Thou makest us a byword among the nations, a shaking of the head among the peoples.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 44:15 - All the day my confusion is before me, and the shame of my face hath covered me,
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 44:16 - Because of the voice of him that reproacheth and blasphemeth; by reason of the enemy and the avenger.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 44:17 - All this is come upon us; yet have we not forgotten thee, neither have we dealt falsely against thy covenant:
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 44:18 - Our heart is not turned back, neither have our steps declined from thy path;
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 44:19 - Though thou hast crushed us in the place of jackals, and covered us with the shadow of death.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 44:20 - If we had forgotten the name of our God, and stretched out our hands to a strange god,
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 44:21 - Would not God search this out? for he knoweth the secrets of the heart.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 44:22 - But for thy sake are we killed all the day long; we are reckoned as sheep for slaughter.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 44:23 - Awake, why sleepest thou, Lord? arise, cast us not off for ever.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 44:24 - Wherefore hidest thou thy face, and forgettest our affliction and our oppression?
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 44:25 - For our soul is bowed down to the dust; our belly cleaveth unto the earth.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 44:26 - Rise up for our help, and redeem us for thy loving-kindness' sake.

In 1867, John Nelson Darby translated the New Testament from Greek into English. Further revisions were done in 1872 and 1884. Darby’s work was first published as The Holy Scriptures: A New Translation from the Original Languages by J. N. Darby. After Darby’s death in 1882, some of his students worked together to produce the complete Darby Bible based on the Masoretic Hebrew text, Darby’s German (Elberfelder), and the French (Pau) translations. In 1890, the first complete Darby Bible was published in English. This translation of the Bible is in the public domain.
