  • 0 To the chief Musician for the sons of Korah, Maschil.
  • 1 We have heard with our ears, O God, Our fathers have told us, which works You did in their days, in days of old:
  • 2 How you drove out the heathen with Your hand, and planted them; how You afflicted the peoples, and cast them out.
  • 3 Because, they did not gain possession of the land by their own sword, nor did their own arm save them; but Your right hand, Your arm, and the light of Your countenance, because You favored them.
  • 4 You are my King, O God; command deliverances for Jacob.
  • 5 Through You we will push down our enemies; through Your name we will trample those who rise up against us.
  • 6 Because I will not trust in my bow, nor will my sword save me.
  • 7 But You have saved us from our enemies, and have put to shame those who hated us.
  • 8 In God we boast all day long, and praise Your name forever. Selah
  • 9 But You have cast us off and put us to shame, and You do not go out with our armies.
  • 10 You make us turn back from the enemy, and those who hate us have taken spoil for themselves.
  • 11 You have given us up like sheep appointed for food, and have scattered us among the heathen.
  • 12 You sell Your people for nothing, and do not increase Your wealth by their price.
  • 13 You make us a byword to the heathen, a scorn and a derision to those who are all around us.
  • 14 You make us a byword among the heathen, a shaking of the head among the people.
  • 15 My confusion is continually before me, and the shame of my face has covered me,
  • 16 because of the voice of him who reproaches and reviles, because of the enemy and avenger.
  • 17 All this has come upon us; but we have not forgotten You, nor have we dealt falsely with Your covenant.
  • 18 Our heart has not turned back, nor have our steps deviated from Your way;
  • 19 though You have severely broken us in the place of dragons, and covered us with the shadow of death.
  • 20 If we had forgotten the name of our God, or stretched out our hands to a foreign god,
  • 21 Would not God search this out? Because He knows the secrets of the heart.
  • 22 Yes, for Your sake we are killed all day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
  • 23 Awake! Why do You sleep, O Lord? Arise! Do not cast us off forever.
  • 24 Why do You hide Your face, and forget our affliction and our oppression?
  • 25 Because, our soul is bowed down to the dust; our body clings to the ground.
  • 26 Arise for our help, and redeem us for Your mercies’ sake.
