Book of Psalms Chapter 44

PSALMS 44:1 We have heard with our ears, O God, our fathers have told us, what work thou didst in their days, in the times of old.

PSALMS 44:2 How thou didst drive out the heathen with thy hand, and plantedst them; how thou didst afflict the people, and cast them out.

PSALMS 44:3 For they got not the land in possession by their own sword, neither did their own arm save them: but thy right hand, and thine arm, and the light of thy countenance, because thou hadst a favour unto them.

PSALMS 44:4 Thou art my King, O God: command deliverances for Jacob.

PSALMS 44:5 Through thee will we push down our enemies: through thy name will we tread them under that rise up against us.

PSALMS 44:6 For I will not trust in my bow, neither shall my sword save me.

PSALMS 44:7 But thou hast saved us from our enemies, and hast put them to shame that hated us.

PSALMS 44:8 In God we boast all the day long, and praise thy name for ever. Selah.

PSALMS 44:9 But thou hast cast off, and put us to shame; and goest not forth with our armies.

PSALMS 44:10 Thou makest us to turn back from the enemy: and they which hate us spoil for themselves.

PSALMS 44:11 Thou hast given us like sheep appointed for meat; and hast scattered us among the heathen.

PSALMS 44:12 Thou sellest thy people for nought, and dost not increase thy wealth by their price.

PSALMS 44:13 Thou makest us a reproach to our neighbours, a scorn and a derision to them that are round about us.

PSALMS 44:14 Thou makest us a byword among the heathen, a shaking of the head among the people.

PSALMS 44:15 My confusion is continually before me, and the shame of my face hath covered me,

PSALMS 44:16 For the voice of him that reproacheth and blasphemeth; by reason of the enemy and avenger.

PSALMS 44:17 All this is come upon us; yet have we not forgotten thee, neither have we dealt falsely in thy covenant.

PSALMS 44:18 Our heart is not turned back, neither have our steps declined from thy way;

PSALMS 44:19 Though thou hast sore broken us in the place of dragons, and covered us with the shadow of death.

PSALMS 44:20 If we have forgotten the name of our God, or stretched out our hands to a strange god;

PSALMS 44:21 Shall not God search this out? for he knoweth the secrets of the heart.

PSALMS 44:22 Yea, for thy sake are we killed all the day long; we are counted as sheep for the slaughter.

PSALMS 44:23 Awake, why sleepest thou, O Lord? arise, cast us not off for ever.

PSALMS 44:24 Wherefore hidest thou thy face, and forgettest our affliction and our oppression?

PSALMS 44:25 For our soul is bowed down to the dust: our belly cleaveth unto the earth.

PSALMS 44:26 Arise for our help, and redeem us for thy mercies' sake.

History of the King James Bible

Meaning and pronunciation of Hebrew names in the Old Testament

Preface to the First Edition of the King James Bible

The bible and Zionism

The Bible, the Old Testament, has become a mainstay of human culture, but it is first and foremost a historical document of the Jewish people and our culture. It tells the story of our ancient kingdoms and civilization in the Land of Israel, and therefore it kept alive the tie of the people of Israel to the land of Israel for 2000 years. It forms the moral and cultural basis of Zionist ideology and aspirations.

The Bible, the Old Testament, is accepted by the three major Western faiths. It is a major work of Western civilization. The Bible documents the historic connection of the Jewish people to the land of Israel, even for those who do not believe that the Bible is the literal word of God, and even for those who do not believe in God at all. It is the historic epic of the Jewish people in our land.
