For the Chief Musician. By the sons of Korah. A contemplative psalm.1 We have heard with our ears, God;
our fathers have told us,
what work you did in their days,
in the days of old.
2You drove out the nations with your hand,
but you planted them.
You afflicted the peoples,
but you spread them abroad.
3For they did not get the land in possession by their own sword,
neither did their own arm save them;
but your right hand, and your arm, and the light of your face,
because you were favorable to them.
4You are my King, God.
Command victories for Jacob!
5Through you, will we push down our adversaries.
Through your name, will we tread them under who rise up against us.
6For I will not trust in my bow,
neither shall my sword save me.
7But you have saved us from our adversaries,
and have shamed those who hate us.
8In God we have made our boast all day long,
we will give thanks to your name forever.
9But now you rejected us, and brought us to dishonor,
and do not go out with our armies.
10You make us turn back from the adversary.
Those who hate us take spoil for themselves.
11You have made us like sheep for food,
and have scattered us among the nations.
12You sell your people for nothing,
and have gained nothing from their sale.
13You make us a reproach to our neighbors,
a scoffing and a derision to those who are around us.
14You make us a byword among the nations,
a shaking of the head among the peoples.
15All day long my dishonor is before me,
and shame covers my face,
16At the taunt of one who reproaches and verbally abuses,
because of the enemy and the avenger.
17All this has come on us,
yet have we not forgotten you,
Neither have we been false to your covenant.
18Our heart has not turned back,
neither have our steps strayed from your path,
19Though you have crushed us in the haunt of jackals,
and covered us with the shadow of death.
20If we have forgotten the name of our God,
or spread forth our hands to a strange god;
21won't God search this out?
For he knows the secrets of the heart.
22Yes, for your sake we are killed all day long.
We are regarded as sheep for the slaughter. ▼
Why do you sleep, Lord? ▼
▼DSS ms. MT reads "Lord"
Do not reject us forever.
24Why do you hide your face,
and forget our affliction and our oppression?
25For our soul is bowed down to the dust.
Our body cleaves to the earth.
26Rise up to help us.
Redeem us for your loving kindness' sake.
