1 H5329 To the chief Musician [H8764] H1121 for the sons H7141 of Korah H4905 , Maschil [H8688] H8085 . We have heard [H8804] H241 with our ears H430 , O God H1 , our fathers H5608 have told [H8765] H6467 us, what work H6466 thou didst [H8804] H3117 in their days H3117 , in the times H6924 of old.
2 H3423 How thou didst drive out [H8689] H1471 the heathen H3027 with thy hand H5193 , and plantedst [H8799] H7489 them; how thou didst afflict [H8686] H3816 the people H7971 , and cast them out [H8762] .
3 H3423 For they got H776 not the land H3423 in possession [H8804] H2719 by their own sword H2220 , neither did their own arm H3467 save [H8689] H3225 them: but thy right hand H2220 , and thine arm H216 , and the light H6440 of thy countenance H7521 , because thou hadst a favour [H8804] unto them.
5 H5055 Through thee will we push down [H8762] H6862 our enemies H8034 : through thy name H947 will we tread them under [H8799] H6965 that rise up [H8801] against us.
6 H982 For I will not trust [H8799] H7198 in my bow H2719 , neither shall my sword H3467 save [H8686] me.
7 H3467 But thou hast saved [H8689] H6862 us from our enemies H954 , and hast put them to shame [H8689] H8130 that hated [H8764] us.
8 H430 In God H1984 we boast [H8765] H3117 all the day H3034 long, and praise [H8686] H8034 thy name H5769 for ever H5542 . Selah.
9 H637 But H2186 thou hast cast off [H8804] H3637 , and put us to shame [H8686] H3318 ; and goest not forth [H8799] H6635 with our armies.
10 H7725 Thou makest us to turn [H8686] H268 back H6862 from the enemy H8130 : and they which hate [H8764] H8154 us spoil [H8804] for themselves.
11 H5414 Thou hast given [H8799] H6629 us like sheep H3978 appointed for meat H2219 ; and hast scattered [H8765] H1471 us among the heathen.
12 H4376 Thou sellest [H8799] H5971 thy people H1952 for nought H7235 , and dost not increase [H8765] H4242 thy wealth by their price.
13 H7760 Thou makest [H8799] H2781 us a reproach H7934 to our neighbours H3933 , a scorn H7047 and a derision H5439 to them that are round about us.
14 H7760 Thou makest [H8799] H4912 us a byword H1471 among the heathen H4493 , a shaking H7218 of the head H3816 among the people.
15 H3639 My confusion H3117 is continually H1322 before me, and the shame H6440 of my face H3680 hath covered [H8765] me,
16 H6963 For the voice H2778 of him that reproacheth [H8764] H1442 and blasphemeth [H8764] H6440 ; by reason H341 of the enemy [H8802] H5358 and avenger [H8693] .
17 H935 All this is come [H8804] H7911 upon us; yet have we not forgotten [H8804] H8266 thee, neither have we dealt falsely [H8765] H1285 in thy covenant.
18 H3820 Our heart H5472 is not turned [H8738] H268 back H838 , neither have our steps H5186 declined [H8799] H734 from thy way;
19 H1794 Though thou hast sore broken [H8765] H4725 us in the place H8577 of dragons H3680 , and covered [H8762] H6757 us with the shadow of death.
20 H7911 If we have forgotten [H8804] H8034 the name H430 of our God H6566 , or stretched out [H8799] H3709 our hands H2114 to a strange [H8801] H410 god;
21 H430 Shall not God H2713 search this out [H8799] H3045 ? for he knoweth [H8802] H8587 the secrets H3820 of the heart.
22 H2026 Yea, for thy sake are we killed [H8795] H3117 all the day H2803 long; we are counted [H8738] H6629 as sheep H2878 for the slaughter.
23 H5782 Awake [H8798] H3462 , why sleepest [H8799] H136 thou, O Lord H6974 ? arise [H8685] H2186 , cast us not off [H8799] H5331 for ever.
24 H5641 Wherefore hidest [H8686] H6440 thou thy face H7911 , and forgettest [H8799] H6040 our affliction H3906 and our oppression?
25 H5315 For our soul H7743 is bowed down [H8804] H6083 to the dust H990 : our belly H1692 cleaveth [H8804] H776 unto the earth.
