Psalm 44

1  We have heard with our ears, O God, our forebears have told us, 
   all that you did in their days, in time of old;
2  How with your hand you drove out nations and planted us in, 
   and broke the power of peoples and set us free.
3  For not by their own sword did our ancestors take the land 
   nor did their own arm save them,
4  But your right hand, your arm, and the light of your countenance, 
   because you were gracious to them.
5  You are my King and my God, 
   who commanded salvation for Jacob.
6  Through you we drove back our adversaries; 
   through your name we trod down our foes.
7  For I did not trust in my bow; 
   it was not my own sword that saved me;
8  It was you that saved us from our enemies 
   and put our adversaries to shame.
9  We gloried in God all the day long, 
   and were ever praising your name.
10  But now you have rejected us and brought us to shame, 
   and go not out with our armies.
11  You have made us turn our backs on our enemies, 
   and our enemies have despoiled us.
12  You have made us like sheep to be slaughtered, 
   and have scattered us among the nations.
13  You have sold your people for a pittance 
   and made no profit on their sale.
14  You have made us the taunt of our neighbours, 
   the scorn and derision of those that are round about us.
15  You have made us a byword among the nations; 
   among the peoples they wag their heads.
