Psalm 44:17-19

17-19All this came down on us,

and we've done nothing to deserve it.

We never betrayed your Covenant: our hearts

were never false, our feet never left your path.

Do we deserve torture in a den of jackals?

or lockup in a black hole?

20-22If we had forgotten to pray to our God

or made fools of ourselves with store-bought gods,

Wouldn't God have figured this out?

We can't hide things from him.

No, you decided to make us martyrs,

lambs assigned for sacrifice each day.
