Psalm 44:22-26 New King James Version (NKJV)

22 Yet for Your sake we are killed all day long;
We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.

23 Awake! Why do You sleep, O Lord?
Arise! Do not cast us off forever.
24 Why do You hide Your face,
And forget our affliction and our oppression?
25 For our soul is bowed down to the [a]dust;
Our body clings to the ground.
26 Arise for our help,
And redeem us for Your mercies’ sake.

22 Yea, for thy sake are we killed all the day long; we are counted as sheep for the slaughter.
