Psalm 44

Past Victory—Present Defeat

For the choir director. By the Sons of Korah. A maskil.

Past Victory

God, our ears have heard.
Our fathers have told us the work you performed
    in their days, in days long ago.
By your hand you drove out the nations,
but you planted your people.
You crushed the peoples,
but you sent your people forward.
For it was not by their sword
    that they took possession of the land.
It was not their arm that saved them.
It was your right hand and your arm,
and the light from your face,
because you took pleasure in them.
