Psalms 44:1-8 NIV

For the director of music. Of the Sons of Korah. A maskil.

We have heard it with our ears, O God;

our ancestors have told us

what you did in their days,

in days long ago.

With your hand you drove out the nations

and planted our ancestors;

you crushed the peoples

and made our ancestors flourish.

It was not by their sword that they won the land,

nor did their arm bring them victory;

it was your right hand, your arm,

and the light of your face, for you loved them.

You are my King and my God,

who decrees victories for Jacob.

Through you we push back our enemies;

through your name we trample our foes.

I put no trust in my bow,

my sword does not bring me victory;

but you give us victory over our enemies,

you put our adversaries to shame.

8In God we make our boast all day long,

and we will praise your name forever.
