Psalm 44
Douay-Rheims Bible

Redeem Us

(Romans 8:35-39)

1{42:6}Hope in God, for I will still give praise to him: the salvation of my countenance, and my God. [1] Unto the end, for the sons of Core, to give understanding.

2{43:2}We have heard, O God, with our ears: our fathers have declared to us, The work thou hast wrought in their days, and in the days of old.

3{43:3}Thy hand destroyed the Gentiles, and thou plantedst them: thou didst afflict the people and cast them out.

4{43:4}For they got not the possession of the land by their own sword: neither did their own arm save them. But thy right hand and thy arm, and the light of thy countenance: because thou wast pleased with them.

5{43:5}Thou art thyself my king and my God, who commandest the saving of Jacob.

6{43:6}Through thee we will push down our enemies with the horn: and through thy name we will despise them that rise up against us.

7{43:7}For I will not trust in my bow: neither shall my sword save me.

8{43:8}But thou hast saved us from them that afflict us: and hast put them to shame that hate us.

9{43:9}In God shall we glory all the day long: and in thy name we will give praise for ever.

10{43:10}But now thou hast cast us off, and put us to shame: and thou , O God, wilt not go out with our armies.

11{43:11}Thou hast made us turn our back to our enemies: and they that hated us plundered for themselves.

12{43:12}Thou hast given us up like sheep to be eaten: thou hast scattered us among the nations.

13{43:13}Thou hast sold thy people for no price: and there was no reckoning in the exchange of them.

14{43:14}Thou hast made us a reproach to our neighbours, a scoff and derision to them that are round about us.

15{43:15}Thou hast made us a byword among the Gentiles: a shaking of the head among the people.

16{43:16}All the day long my shame is before me: and the confusion of my face hath covered me,

17{43:17}At the voice of him that reproacheth and detracteth me: at the face of the enemy and persecutor.

18{43:18}All these things have come upon us, yet we have not forgotten thee: and we have not done wickedly in thy covenant.

19{43:19}And our heart hath not turned back: neither hast thou turned aside our steps from thy way.

20{43:20}For thou hast humbled us in the place of affliction: and the shadow of death hath covered us.

21{43:21}If we have forgotten the name of our God, and if we have spread forth our hands to a strange god:

22{43:22}Shall not God search out these things: for he knoweth the secrets of the heart. Because for thy sake we are killed all the day long: we are counted as sheep for the slaughter.

23{43:23}Arise, why sleepest thou, O Lord? arise, and cast us not off to the end.

24{43:24}Why turnest thou thy face away? and forgettest our want and our trouble?

25{43:25}For our soul is humbled down to the dust: our belly cleaveth to the earth.

26{43:26}Arise, O Lord, help us and redeem us for thy name's sake.
