Psalm 44 for the overcomer, through the sons of Korah, giving understanding

Tune: #958 Since Long Ago at Bethany We Parted (Danny Boy)
audio file from
1 O God, with our   ears have we heard our fathers.
They told us the   work in their days You did,
in days of old.   2 You, by Your hand uprooted
the nations, and   our fathers You planted.
You afflict the   peoples, and them You spread out,
3 for not by their   own sword did they possess
the land, neither   did their own arm deliver them,
but Thy right hand and   the light of Thy countenance
and Thine own arm, because You had delight in them.
4 Thou Thyself art   my King. O God decree
deliverance    for Jacob, 5 that we through Thee
will push down all   of our adversaries,
through Thy name will   we tread them down that rise 'gainst us.
6 For I won't put   in my bow confidence,
neither shall my   sword save me, 7 for You had saved us
from our foes and had   put them to shame that hate us.
8 In God did we   boast all the day, and we would praise
Thy name ever   and forever. Selah.
9 But You cast off   and put us to confusion,
and with our ar-   mies, Thou goest forth not.
10 You make us turn   back from the adversary,
and they that hate   us for themselves spoiled us.
11 Thou givest us   over like sheep to be consumed,
and among many   nations You have scattered us.
12 You sell for nought   Your people and have gained nothing
by their price.13 You    have made us a reproach,
to our neighbors   a mockery and derision,
for them that are  round about us a joke.
14 Thou makest us   a byword to the nations,
to the peoples, a shaking head, disgrace.
15 All the day my   confusion is before me,
and covering me   is the shame upon my face,
16 from the voice of   him that reproaches and blasphemes,
by reason of   the foe and enemy.
17 All this is come   on us, yet we forget not Thee,
 nor have we dealt   'gainst Thy cov'nant falsely.
18 Our heart is not   turned back, neither have our steps
strayed from Thy path   19 though Thou hast crushed us in
the jackals' place,   and covered us with death's shadow.
20 If we had the name  of our true God forgotten,
or stretched out our   hands unto a foreign god,
21 would not God search   this out for knoweth He
the heart's secrets    22 But for Thy sake are we killed
all day. Reckoned    as sheep for slaughter we.
23 Awake, O Lord,   why sleepest Thou? Arise! Do not,
do not cast us   off forever from Thee.
24 Wherefore hidest   Thou Thy face? Thou forgettest
our affliction and    oppression and poverty.
25 For our soul is   bowed down unto the dust; O Lord.
Our belly cleaves    to the earth as a worm.
26 Rise up for our    help and do redeem us for
thy mercy's sake,  according to Thy Word.

Revelation 2:7 He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies. To him that overcomes, I will give to him to eat of the tree of life which is in the paradise of God.
11 He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies. He that overcomes shall in no wise be injured of the second death.
17 He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies. To him that overcomes, to him will I give of the hidden manna; and I will give to him a white stone, and on the stone a new name written, which no one knows but he that receives it.
26 And he that overcomes, and he that keeps unto the end my works, to him will I give authority over the nations,
 27 and he shall shepherd them with an iron rod; as vessels of pottery are they broken in pieces, as I also have received from my Father;
 28 and I will give to him the morning star.
 29 He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies.
3:5 He that overcomes, *he* shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot his name out of the book of life, and will confess his name before my Father and before his angels.
 6 He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies.
12 He that overcomes, him will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more at all out; and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven, from my God, and my new name.
 13 He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies.
20 Behold, I stand at the door and am knocking; if any one hear my voice and open the door, I will come in unto him and sup with him, and he with me.
 21 He that overcomes, to him will I give to sit with me in my throne; as *I* also have overcome, and have sat down with my Father in his throne.
 22 He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies.
Romans 8:17 and if children, then heirs-- heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him.
26 Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.
 27 And he who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.
 28 And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.
35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword?
 36 As it is written, "For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered."
 37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.
 38 For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers,
 39 nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Mark 4:35 And on that day, when evening was come, he says to them, Let us go over to the other side:
 36 and having sent away the crowd, they take him with them, as he was, in the ship. But other ships also were with him.
 37 And there comes a violent gust of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it already filled.
 38 And *he* was in the stern sleeping on the cushion. And they awake him up and say to him, Teacher, dost thou not care that we are perishing?
 39 And awaking up he rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, Silence; be mute. And the wind fell, and there was a great calm.
 40 And he said to them, Why are ye thus fearful? how is it ye have not faith?
Daniel 9:25 Know therefore and understand: From the going forth of the word to restore and to build Jerusalem unto Messiah, the Prince, are seven sevens, and sixty-two sevens. The street and the moat shall be built again, even in troublous times.
Ezra 4:1 Now when the adversaries of Judah and Benjamin heard that the returned exiles were building a temple to the LORD, the God of Israel,
4 Then the people of the land discouraged the people of Judah and made them afraid to build
5 and bribed counselors against them to frustrate their purpose, all the days of Cyrus king of Persia, even until the reign of Darius king of Persia.
 6 And in the reign of Ahasuerus, in the beginning of his reign, they wrote an accusation against the inhabitants of Judah and Jerusalem.
 7 In the days of Artaxerxes, Bishlam and Mithredath and Tabeel and the rest of their associates wrote to Artaxerxes king of Persia. The letter was written in Aramaic and translated.
23 Then, when the copy of King Artaxerxes' letter was read before Rehum and Shimshai the scribe and their associates, they went in haste to the Jews at Jerusalem and by force and power made them cease.
24 Then the work on the house of God that is in Jerusalem stopped, and it ceased until the second year of the reign of Darius king of Persia.
