Psalms Chapter 77 |
1For the leader; on Jeduthun. Of Asaph. A psalm.
2I cry aloud to God;
I cry to God that He may give ear to me.
3In my time of distress I turn to the Lord,
with my hand [uplifted];
[my eyes] flow all night without respite;
I will not be comforted.
4I call God to mind, I moan,
I complain, my spirit fails. Selah.
5You have held my eyelids open;
I am overwrought, I cannot speak.
6My thoughts turn to days of old,
to years long past.
7I recall at night their jibes at me;
I commune with myself;
my spirit inquires,
8“Will the Lord reject forever
and never again show favor?
9Has His faithfulness disappeared forever?
Will His promise be unfulfilled for all time?
10Has God forgotten how to pity?
Has He in anger stifled His compassion?” Selah.
11And I said, “It is my fault
that the right hand of the Most High has changed.”
12I recall the deeds of the Lord;
yes, I recall Your wonders of old;
13I recount all Your works;
I speak of Your acts.
14O God, Your ways are holiness;
what god is as great as God?
15You are the God who works wonders;
You have manifested Your strength among the peoples.
16By Your arm You redeemed Your people,
the children of Jacob and Joseph. Selah.
17The waters saw You, O God,
the waters saw You and were convulsed;
the very deep quaked as well.
18Clouds streamed water;
the heavens rumbled;
Your arrows flew about;
19Your thunder rumbled like wheels;
lightning lit up the world;
the earth quaked and trembled.
20Your way was through the sea,
Your path, through the mighty waters;
Your tracks could not be seen.
21You led Your people like a flock
in the care of Moses and Aaron.
