Psalms 44:11

You have given us like sheep appointed for food; and have scattered us among the nations.
Read Chapter 44

Augustine of Hippo

AD 430
10. "Thou has given us like sheep appointed for meat, and hast scattered us among the nations" (ver. 11). We have been "devoured" by "the nations." Those persons are meant, who, through their sufferings, have by process of assimilation, becomes part of the "body" of the Gentile world. For the Church mourns over them, as over members of her body, that have been devoured.

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
