019:044:001
We have heard with our ears,
O God,
our fathers have told us,
what work thou didst in their days,
in the times of old.


019:044:002
How thou didst drive out the heathen with thy hand,
and plantedst them;
how thou didst afflict the people,
and cast them out.


019:044:003
For they 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 the light of thy countenance,
because thou hadst a favour unto them.


019:044:004
Thou art my King,
O God:
command deliverances for Jacob.


019:044:005
Through thee will we push down our enemies:
through thy name will we tread them under that rise up against us.


019:044:006
For I will not trust in my bow,
neither shall my sword save me.


019:044:007
But thou hast saved us from our enemies,
and hast put them to shame that hated us.


019:044:008
In God we boast all the day long,
and praise thy name for ever.
Selah.


019:044:009
But thou hast cast off,
and put us to shame;
and goest not forth with our armies.


019:044:010
Thou makest us to turn back from the enemy:
and they which hate us spoil for themselves.


019:044:011
Thou hast given us like sheep appointed for meat;
and hast scattered us among the heathen.


019:044:012
Thou sellest thy people for nought,
and dost not increase thy wealth by their price.


019:044:013
Thou makest us a reproach to our neighbours,
a scorn and a derision to them that are round about us.


019:044:014
Thou makest us a byword among the heathen,
a shaking of the head among the people.


019:044:015
My confusion is continually before me,
and the shame of my face hath covered me,


019:044:016
For the voice of him that reproacheth and blasphemeth;
by reason of the enemy and avenger.


019:044:017
All this is come upon us;
yet have we not forgotten thee,
neither have we dealt falsely in thy covenant.


019:044:018
Our heart is not turned back,
neither have our steps declined from thy way;


019:044:019
Though thou hast sore broken us in the place of dragons,
and covered us with the shadow of death.


019:044:020
If we have forgotten the name of our God,
or stretched out our hands to a strange god;


019:044:021
Shall not God search this out?
for he knoweth the secrets of the heart.


019:044:022
Yea,
for thy sake are we killed all the day long;
we are counted as sheep for the slaughter.


019:044:023
Awake,
why sleepest thou,
O Lord?
arise,
cast us not off for ever.


019:044:024
Wherefore hidest thou thy face,
and forgettest our affliction and our oppression?


019:044:025
For our soul is bowed down to the dust:
our belly cleaveth unto the earth.


019:044:026
Arise for our help,
and redeem us for thy mercies' sake.
