You have not started any reading plans.
For the choir director: A psalm* of the descendants of Korah.
our ancestors have told us
of all you did in their day,
in days long ago:
and gave all the land to our ancestors.
You crushed their enemies
and set our ancestors free.
it was not their own strong arm that gave them victory.
It was your right hand and strong arm
and the blinding light from your face that helped them,
for you loved them.
You command victories for Israel.*
only in your name can we trample our foes.
I do not count on my sword to save me.
you disgrace those who hate us.
and constantly praise your name.
You no longer lead our armies to battle.
and allow those who hate us to plunder our land.
and scattered us among the nations.
making nothing on the sale.
We are an object of scorn and derision to those around us.
they shake their heads at us in scorn.
shame is written across our faces.
All we see are our vengeful enemies.
We have not violated your covenant.
We have not strayed from your path.
You have covered us with darkness and death.
or spread our hands in prayer to foreign gods,
for he knows the secrets of every heart.
we are being slaughtered like sheep.
Get up! Do not reject us forever.
Why do you ignore our suffering and oppression?
lying face down in the dirt.
Ransom us because of your unfailing love.
