9Yet you have rejected us and abased us,
and have not gone out with our armies.10You made us turn back from the foe,
and our enemies have gotten spoil.11You have made us like sheep for slaughter,
and have scattered us among the nations.12You have sold your people for a trifle,
demanding no high price for them.
13You have made us the taunt of our neighbors,
the derision and scorn of those around us.14You have made us a byword among the nations,
a laughingstock among the peoples.15All day long my disgrace is before me,
and shame has covered my face16at the words of the taunters and revilers,
at the sight of the enemy and the avenger.
17All this has come upon us,
yet we have not forgotten you,
or been false to your covenant.18Our heart has not turned back,
nor have our steps departed from your way,19yet you have broken us in the haunt of jackals,
and covered us with deep darkness.
20If we had forgotten the name of our God,
or spread out our hands to a strange god,21would not God discover this?
For he knows the secrets of the heart.22Because of you we are being killed all day long,
and accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
