Psalm 44:1-2 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Psalm 44[a]

God’s Past Favor and Israel’s Present Need

For the leader. A maskil of the Korahites.


O God, we have heard with our own ears;
    our ancestors have told us
The deeds you did in their days,
    with your own hand in days of old:


  1. Psalm 44 In this lament the community reminds God of past favors which it has always acknowledged (Ps 44:2–9). But now God has abandoned Israel to defeat and humiliation (Ps 44:10–17), though the people are not conscious of any sin against the covenant (Ps 44:18–23). They struggle with being God’s special people amid divine silence; yet they continue to pray (Ps 44:24–26).
