Listen to the Bible

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 44:1 - For the choir director: A psalm[fn] 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:

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 44:2 - You 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.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 44:3 - They 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.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 44:4 - You are my King and my God.
You command victories for Israel.[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 44:5 - Only by your power can we push back our enemies;
only in your name can we trample our foes.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 44:6 - I do not trust in my bow;
I do not count on my sword to save me.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 44:7 - You are the one who gives us victory over our enemies;
you disgrace those who hate us.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 44:8 - O God, we give glory to you all day long
and constantly praise your name.
Interlude

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 44:9 - But now you have tossed us aside in dishonor.
You no longer lead our armies to battle.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 44:10 - You make us retreat from our enemies
and allow those who hate us to plunder our land.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 44:11 - You have butchered us like sheep
and scattered us among the nations.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 44:12 - You sold your precious people for a pittance,
making nothing on the sale.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 44:13 - You let our neighbors mock us.
We are an object of scorn and derision to those around us.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 44:14 - You have made us the butt of their jokes;
they shake their heads at us in scorn.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 44:15 - We can’t escape the constant humiliation;
shame is written across our faces.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 44:16 - All we hear are the taunts of our mockers.
All we see are our vengeful enemies.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 44:17 - All this has happened though we have not forgotten you.
We have not violated your covenant.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 44:18 - Our hearts have not deserted you.
We have not strayed from your path.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 44:19 - Yet you have crushed us in the jackal’s desert home.
You have covered us with darkness and death.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 44:20 - If we had forgotten the name of our God
or spread our hands in prayer to foreign gods,

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 44:21 - God would surely have known it,
for he knows the secrets of every heart.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 44:22 - But for your sake we are killed every day;
we are being slaughtered like sheep.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 44:23 - Wake up, O Lord! Why do you sleep?
Get up! Do not reject us forever.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 44:24 - Why do you look the other way?
Why do you ignore our suffering and oppression?

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 44:25 - We collapse in the dust,
lying face down in the dirt.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 44:26 - Rise up! Help us!
Ransom us because of your unfailing love.
