Psalms 44

1

[a]For the director of music. Of the Sons of Korah. A maskil.Title: Probably a literary or musical term

1

We have heard it with our ears, O God;
our ancestors have told us
what you did in their days,
in days long ago.

2 With your hand you drove out the nations
and planted our ancestors;
you crushed the peoples
and made our ancestors flourish.

3 It was not by their sword that they won the land,
nor did their arm bring them victory;
it was your right hand, your arm,
and the light of your face, for you loved them.

4

You are my King and my God,
who decrees[b] victories for Jacob.

5 Through you we push back our enemies;
through your name we trample our foes.

6 I put no trust in my bow,
my sword does not bring me victory;

7 but you give us victory over our enemies,
you put our adversaries to shame.

8 In God we make our boast all day long,
and we will praise your name forever.[c]
