Psalm 44:9-12

9-12But now you've walked off and left us,

you've disgraced us and won't fight for us.

You made us turn tail and run;

those who hate us have cleaned us out.

You delivered us as sheep to the butcher,

you scattered us to the four winds.

You sold your people at a discount—

you made nothing on the sale.

13-16You made people on the street,

urchins, poke fun and call us names.

You made us a joke among the godless,

a cheap joke among the rabble.

Every day I'm up against it,

my nose rubbed in my shame—

Gossip and ridicule fill the air,

people out to get me crowd the street.
