RSV 1 To the choirmaster. A Maskil of the Sons of Korah. We have heard with our ears, O God, our fathers have told us, what deeds thou didst perform in their days, in the days of old: NIV 1 We have heard with our ears, O God; our fathers have told us what you did in their days, in days long ago. RSV 2 thou with thy own hand didst drive out the nations, but them thou didst plant; thou didst afflict the peoples, but them thou didst set free; NIV 2 With your hand you drove out the nations and planted our fathers; you crushed the peoples and made our fathers flourish. RSV 3 for not by their own sword did they win the land, nor did their own arm give them victory; but thy right hand, and thy arm, and the light of thy countenance; for thou didst delight in them. NIV 3 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. RSV 4 Thou art my King and my God, who ordainest victories for Jacob. NIV 4 You are my King and my God, who decrees victories for Jacob. RSV 5 Through thee we push down our foes; through thy name we tread down our assailants. NIV 5 Through you we push back our enemies; through your name we trample our foes. RSV 6 For not in my bow do I trust, nor can my sword save me. NIV 6 I do not trust in my bow, my sword does not bring me victory; RSV 7 But thou hast saved us from our foes, and hast put to confusion those who hate us. NIV 7 but you give us victory over our enemies, you put our adversaries to shame. RSV 8 In God we have boasted continually, and we will give thanks to thy name for ever. [Selah] NIV 8 In God we make our boast all day long, and we will praise your name forever. "Selah" RSV 9 Yet thou hast cast us off and abased us, and hast not gone out with our armies. NIV 9 But now you have rejected and humbled us; you no longer go out with our armies. RSV 10 Thou hast made us turn back from the foe; and our enemies have gotten spoil. NIV 10 You made us retreat before the enemy, and our adversaries have plundered us. RSV 11 Thou hast made us like sheep for slaughter, and hast scattered us among the nations. NIV 11 You gave us up to be devoured like sheep and have scattered us among the nations. RSV 12 Thou hast sold thy people for a trifle, demanding no high price for them. NIV 12 You sold your people for a pittance, gaining nothing from their sale. RSV 13 Thou hast made us the taunt of our neighbors, the derision and scorn of those about us. NIV 13 You have made us a reproach to our neighbors, the scorn and derision of those around us. RSV 14 Thou hast made us a byword among the nations, a laughingstock among the peoples. NIV 14 You have made us a byword among the nations; the peoples shake their heads at us. RSV 15 All day long my disgrace is before me, and shame has covered my face, NIV 15 My disgrace is before me all day long, and my face is covered with shame RSV 16 at the words of the taunters and revilers, at the sight of the enemy and the avenger. NIV 16 at the taunts of those who reproach and revile me, because of the enemy, who is bent on revenge. RSV 17 All this has come upon us, though we have not forgotten thee, or been false to thy covenant. NIV 17 All this happened to us, though we had not forgotten you or been false to your covenant. RSV 18 Our heart has not turned back, nor have our steps departed from thy way, NIV 18 Our hearts had not turned back; our feet had not strayed from your path. RSV 19 that thou shouldst have broken us in the place of jackals, and covered us with deep darkness. NIV 19 But you crushed us and made us a haunt for jackals and covered us over with deep darkness. RSV 20 If we had forgotten the name of our God, or spread forth our hands to a strange god, NIV 20 If we had forgotten the name of our God or spread out our hands to a foreign god, RSV 21 would not God discover this? For he knows the secrets of the heart. NIV 21 would not God have discovered it, since he knows the secrets of the heart? RSV 22 Nay, for thy sake we are slain all the day long, and accounted as sheep for the slaughter. NIV 22 Yet for your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered. RSV 23 Rouse thyself! Why sleepest thou, O Lord? Awake! Do not cast us off for ever! NIV 23 Awake, O Lord! Why do you sleep? Rouse yourself ! Do not reject us forever. RSV 24 Why dost thou hide thy face? Why dost thou forget our affliction and oppression? NIV 24 Why do you hide your face and forget our misery and oppression? RSV 25 For our soul is bowed down to the dust; our body cleaves to the ground. NIV 25 We are brought down to the dust; our bodies cling to the ground. RSV 26 Rise up, come to our help! Deliver us for the sake of thy steadfast love! NIV 26 Rise up and help us; redeem us because of your unfailing love.
