kjv@Psalms:44:1@ We have heard with our ears, O God, our fathers have told us, what work thou didst in their days, in the times of old.
kjv@Psalms:44:2@ How thou didst drive out the heathen with thy hand, and plantedst them; how thou didst afflict the people, and cast them out.
kjv@Psalms:44:3@ For they got not the land in possession by their own sword, neither did their own arm save them: but thy right hand, and thine arm, and the light of thy countenance, because thou hadst a favour unto them.
This chapter is a hard read. It is like two extremes: praise and near accusation. Given the history of Israel it is hard to see a time when they stood blameless in the Lord, but, it may well be at this time they did stand perfect and still God had sore broken them. I am sure that God would have His just reasons. Perhaps it's something He was doing towards Israel's enemies or something wrong they had done recently but not currently (but I think that He would tell them so). It would be difficult however in most situations to be so bold as to say that anybody or any nation at any time ever had a time when they were without fault.
