Former Deliverances and Present Troubles.
For the choir director. A ▼▼ Possibly Contemplative, or Didactic, or Skillful PsalmMaskil of the sons of Korah.1 O God, we have heard with our ears,
Our b fathers have told us
The c work that You did in their days,
In the d days of old.
2You with Your own hand e drove out the nations;
Then You f planted them;
You g afflicted the peoples,
Then You h spread them abroad.
3For by their own sword they i did not possess the land,
And their own arm did not save them,
But Your right hand and Your j arm and the k light of Your presence,
For You l favored them.
4You are m my King, O God;
n Command ▼
▼ Lit salvationvictories for Jacob.
5Through You we will p push back our adversaries;
Through Your name we will q trample down those who rise up against us.
6For I will r not trust in my bow,
Nor will my sword save me.
7But You s have saved us from our adversaries,
And You have t put to shame those who hate us.
8In God we have u boasted all day long,
And we will v give thanks to Your name forever. ▼
▼ Selah may mean: Pause, Crescendo or Musical interludeSelah.
9Yet You x have rejected us and brought us to y dishonor,
And z do not go out with our armies.
10You cause us to aa turn back from the adversary;
And those who hate us ab have taken spoil for themselves.
11You give us as ac sheep ▼
▼ Lit for foodto be eaten
And have ae scattered us among the nations.
12You af sell Your people ▼
▼ Lit for no wealthcheaply,
And have not ▼
▼ Or set a high price on themprofited by their sale.
13You make us a ai reproach to our neighbors,
A scoffing and a aj derision to those around us.
14You make us ak a byword among the nations,
▼ Lit shaking of the head, am laughingstock among the peoples.
15All day long my dishonor is before me
▼ Lit the shame of my face has covered memy ao humiliation has overwhelmed me,
16Because of the voice of him who ap reproaches and reviles,
Because of the presence of the aq enemy and the avenger.
17All this has come upon us, but we have ar not forgotten You,
And we have not as dealt falsely with Your covenant.
18Our heart has not at turned back,
And our steps au have not deviated from Your way,
19Yet You have av crushed us in a place of aw jackals
And covered us with ax the shadow of death.
20If we had ay forgotten the name of our God
Or extended our ▼
▼ Lit palmshands to ba a strange god,
21Would not God bb find this out?
For He knows the secrets of the heart.
22But bc for Your sake we are killed all day long;
We are considered as bd sheep to be slaughtered.
23 be Arouse Yourself, why bf do You sleep, O Lord?
Awake bg do not reject us forever.
24Why do You bh hide Your face
And bi forget our affliction and our oppression?
25For our bj soul has sunk down into the dust;
Our body cleaves to the earth.
26 bk Rise up, be our help,
And bl redeem us for the sake of Your lovingkindness.
