    Definitions for Psalms 44:10

    Spoil - Booty; prey.

    Clarke's Commentary on Psalms 44:10

    Thou makest us to turn back - This thou didst: and our enemies, profiting by the occasion, finding our strength was departed from us, made us an easy prey, captivated our persons, and spoiled us of our property.

    Barnes' Notes on Psalms 44:10

    Thou makest us to turn back from the enemy - Instead of giving us the victory. That is, we are defeated.

    And they which hate us spoil for themselves - They plunder us; they take our property as spoil, and carry it away. That this was done at the time referred to in the introduction as the time of the composition of the psalm, is apparent from the narrative in the Book of Chronicles. 2 Chronicles 36:7, "Nebuchadnezzar also carried of the vessels of the house of the Lord to Babylon, and put them in his temple at Babylon." Compare 2 Kings 23:33; 2 Kings 24:13-16; 2 Kings 25:13-17.
