Context
Redeem Us

1We have heard with our ears, O God, our fathers have told us, what work you did in their days, in the times of old. 2How you did drive out the heathen with your hand, and planted them; how you did afflict the people, and cast them out. 3For they got not the land in possession by their own sword, neither did their own arm save them: but your right hand, and your arm, and the light of your countenance, because you had a favor to them. 4You are my King, O God: command deliverances for Jacob. 5Through you will we push down our enemies: through your name will we tread them under that rise up against us. 6For I will not trust in my bow, neither shall my sword save me. 7But you have saved us from our enemies, and have put them to shame that hated us. 8In God we boast all the day long, and praise your name for ever. Selah. 9But you have cast off, and put us to shame; and go not forth with our armies. 10You make us to turn back from the enemy: and they which hate us spoil for themselves. 11You have given us like sheep appointed for meat; and have scattered us among the heathen. 12You sell your people for nothing, and do not increase your wealth by their price. 13You make us a reproach to our neighbors, a scorn and a derision to them that are round about us. 14You make us a byword among the heathen, a shaking of the head among the people. 15My confusion is continually before me, and the shame of my face has covered me, 16For the voice of him that reproaches and blasphemes; by reason of the enemy and avenger. 17All this is come on us; yet have we not forgotten you, neither have we dealt falsely in your covenant. 18Our heart is not turned back, neither have our steps declined from your way; 19Though you have sore broken us in the place of dragons, and covered us with the shadow of death. 20If we have forgotten the name of our God, or stretched out our hands to a strange god; 21Shall not God search this out? for he knows the secrets of the heart. 22Yes, for your sake are we killed all the day long; we are counted as sheep for the slaughter. 23Awake, why sleep you, O Lord? arise, cast us not off for ever. 24Why hide you your face, and forget our affliction and our oppression? 25For our soul is bowed down to the dust: our belly sticks to the earth. 26Arise for our help, and redeem us for your mercies' sake.
