To the chiefH5329 MusicianH5329 for the sonsH1121 of Korah,H7141 Maschil.H4905 We have heardH8085 with our ears,H241 O God,H430 our fathersH1 have toldH5608 us, what workH6467 you didH6466 in their days,H3117 in the timesH3117 of old.H6924
How you did driveH3423 out the heathenH1471 with your hand,H3027 and plantedH5193 them; how you did afflictH7489 the people,H3816 and castH7971 them out.
For they gotH3423 not the landH776 in possessionH3423 by their own sword,H2719 neitherH3808 did their own armH2220 saveH3467 them: but your rightH3225 hand,H3225 and your arm,H2220 and the lightH216 of your countenance,H6440 becauseH3588 you had a favorH7522 to them.
You are my King,H4428 O God:H430 commandH6680 deliverancesH3444 for Jacob.H3290
Through you will we pushH5055 down our enemies:H6862 through your nameH8034 will we treadH947 them under that riseH6965 up against us.
For I will not trustH982 in my bow,H7198 neitherH3808 shall my swordH2719 saveH3467 me.
But you have savedH3467 us from our enemies,H6862 and have put them to shameH954 that hatedH8130 us.
In GodH430 we boastH1984 allH3605 the dayH3117 long, and praiseH3034 your nameH8034 for ever.H5769 Selah.H5542
But you have castH2186 off, and put us to shame;H3637 and goH3318 not forthH3318 with our armies.H6635
You make us to turnH7725 backH268 from the enemy:H6862 and they which hateH8130 us spoilH8154 for themselves.
You have givenH5414 us like sheepH6629 appointed for meat;H3978 and have scatteredH2219 us among the heathen.H1471
You sellH4376 your peopleH5971 for nothing,H3808 H1952 and do not increaseH7235 your wealth by their price.H4242
You makeH6213 us a reproachH2781 to our neighbors,H7934 a scornH3933 and a derisionH7047 to them that are roundH5439 about us.
You makeH6213 us a bywordH4912 among the heathen,H1471 a shakingH4493 of the headH7218 among the people.H3816
My confusionH3639 is continuallyH3117 beforeH5048 me, and the shameH1322 of my faceH6440 has coveredH3680 me,
For the voiceH6963 of him that reproachesH2778 and blasphemes;H1442 by reasonH6440 of the enemyH341 and avenger.H5358
AllH3605 thisH2063 is comeH935 on us; yet have we not forgottenH7911 you, neitherH3808 have we dealt falselyH8266 in your covenant.H1285
Our heartH3820 is not turnedH5472 back,H268 neither have our stepsH838 declinedH5186 from your way;H734
ThoughH3588 you have sore brokenH1794 us in the placeH4725 of dragons,H8577 and coveredH3680 us with the shadowH6757 of death.H6757
IfH518 we have forgottenH7911 the nameH8034 of our God,H430 or stretchedH6566 out our handsH3709 to a strangeH2114 god;H410
Shall not GodH430 searchH2713 thisH2063 out? for he knowsH3045 the secretsH8587 of the heart.H3820
Yes,H3588 for your sake are we killedH2026 allH3605 the dayH3117 long; we are countedH2803 as sheepH6629 for the slaughter.H2878
Awake,H5782 whyH4100 sleepH3462 you, O Lord?H136 arise,H6974 castH2186 us not off for ever.H5331
WhyH4100 hideH5641 you your face,H6440 and forgetH7911 our afflictionH6040 and our oppression?H3906
For our soulH5315 is bowedH7743 downH7743 to the dust:H6083 our bellyH990 sticksH1692 to the earth.H776
AriseH6965 for our help,H5833 and redeemH6299 us for your mercies'H2617 sake.H4616
