Psalms - Chapter 77

1

For the director of music. For Jeduthun. Of Asaph. A psalm. I cried out to God for help; I cried out to God to hear me.


2

When I was in distress, I sought the Lord; at night I stretched out untiring hands and my soul refused to be comforted.


3

I remembered you, O God, and I groaned; I mused, and my spirit grew faint. Selah


4

You kept my eyes from closing; I was too troubled to speak.


5

I thought about the former days, the years of long ago;


6

I remembered my songs in the night. My heart mused and my spirit inquired:


7

"Will the Lord reject forever? Will he never show his favor again?


8

Has his unfailing love vanished forever? Has his promise failed for all time?


9

Has God forgotten to be merciful? Has he in anger withheld his compassion?" Selah


10

Then I thought, "To this I will appeal: the years of the right hand of the Most High."


11

I will remember the deeds of the LORD; yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago.


12

I will meditate on all your works and consider all your mighty deeds.


13

Your ways, O God, are holy. What god is so great as our God?


14

You are the God who performs miracles; you display your power among the peoples.


15

With your mighty arm you redeemed your people, the descendants of Jacob and Joseph. Selah


16

The waters saw you, O God, the waters saw you and writhed; the very depths were convulsed.


17

The clouds poured down water, the skies resounded with thunder; your arrows flashed back and forth.


18

Your thunder was heard in the whirlwind, your lightning lit up the world; the earth trembled and quaked.


19

Your path led through the sea, your way through the mighty waters, though your footprints were not seen.


20

You led your people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron.
