Psalm 44:17-22

View Full Chapter

17All this came upon us, though we had not forgotten you; we had not been false to your covenant.

18Our hearts had not turned back; our feet had not strayed from your path.

19But you crushed us and made us a haunt for jackals; you covered us over with deep darkness.

20If we had forgotten the name of our God or spread out our hands to a foreign god,

21would not God have discovered it, since he knows the secrets of the heart?

22Yet for your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.
