We have done nothing wrong (Ps 44:20-44:22)

“If we had forgotten the name of our God,

If we have spread out our hands to a strange god,

Would not God discover this?

He knows the secrets of the heart.

Because of you,

We are being killed all day long.

We are accounted

As sheep for the slaughter.”

Once again there is a lament. They have not forgotten the name of God. They have not worshipped strange gods. God would know this if they had done it. They were being killed all day long like sheep going to the slaughter, a repetition of what was just said earlier.
