Psalm 44:3-7 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

For they did not take the land by their sword—
their arm did not bring them victory—
but by Your right hand, Your arm,
and the light of Your face,
for You were pleased with them.

You are my King, my God,
who ordains[a] victories for Jacob.
Through You we drive back our foes;
through Your name we trample our enemies.
For I do not trust in my bow,
and my sword does not bring me victory.
But You give us victory over our foes
and let those who hate us be disgraced.

Psalm 44:3-7 New International Version (NIV)

It was not by their sword that they won the land,
    nor did their arm bring them victory;
it was your right hand, your arm,
    and the light of your face, for you loved them.

You are my King and my God,
    who decrees[a] victories for Jacob.
Through you we push back our enemies;
    through your name we trample our foes.
I put no trust in my bow,
    my sword does not bring me victory;
but you give us victory over our enemies,
    you put our adversaries to shame.

Psalm 44:3-7 King James Version (KJV)

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.

Thou art my King, O God: command deliverances for Jacob.

Through thee will we push down our enemies: through thy name will we tread them under that rise up against us.

For I will not trust in my bow, neither shall my sword save me.

But thou hast saved us from our enemies, and hast put them to shame that hated us.
