Arno Gaebelein's Annotated Bible
Psalms 44



Verses 1-26

Psalm 44

The Increased Cry for Deliverance

1. My King, O God! Command deliverances (Psalms 44:1-8)

2. Trouble upon trouble and confusion (Psalms 44:9-21)

3. Awake! Arise for our help! (Psalms 44:22-26)

The third Maschil Psalm. They remember the days of old, what God did for His covenant people in the past, how He gave them the land with an outstretched arm and delivered them from their enemies. They own Him as King and call on Him to command deliverances for Jacob. Then they utter their complaint and describe the great troubles and calamities they are facing; they are spoiled, like sheep appointed for meat, scattered, scorned and derided. Yet they have not forgotten Him. Then follows the cry for the Deliverer and for deliverance. “Arise for our help, and redeem us for Thy mercies’ sake.
