New International Version
Then I thought, "To this I will appeal: the years when the Most High stretched out his right hand.
King James Bible

Darby Bible Translation
Then said I, This is my weakness: -- the years of the right hand of the Most High
World English Bible
Then I thought, "I will appeal to this: the years of the right hand of the Most High."
Young's Literal Translation
And I say: 'My weakness is, The changes of the right hand of the Most High.'
Psalm 77:10 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
And I said, This is my infirmity - The Hebrew is very obscure, and has been differently translated: ואמר חלותי היא שנות ימימן עליון vaomar challothi hi shenoth yemin elyon; "And I said, Is this my weakness? Years the right hand of the Most High." If חלותי challothi comes from חלה chalah, and signifies to pray, as De Dieu has thought, then his translation may be proper: Precari hoc meum est; mutare dextram Altissimi. "To pray, this my business; to change the right hand of the Most High." I can do nothing else than pray; God is the Ruler of events. Mr. N. M. Berlin translates, "Dolere meum hoc est; mutare est dextra Altissimi." To grieve is my portion; to change (my condition) belongs to the right hand of the Most High. Here שנות shenoth, which we translate years, is derived from שנה shanah, to change. This latter appears to me the better translation; the sum of the meaning is, "I am in deep distress; the Most High alone can change my condition." The old Psalter, following the Vulgate, - Et dixi, Nunc coepi: haec mutatio dexterae Excelsi, - translates: And I said, Now I began this chaunchyng of ryght hand of hihegh (highest) Alswa say, God sal noght kast al man kynde fra his sigt with outen ende: for nowe I began to understand the syker; (the truth); that man sal be brogt to endles; and thar fore, now I said, that this chaunchyng fra wreth to mercy, is thrugh Ihu Criste that chaunges me fra ill to gude, fra noy to gladnes.
Once more, Coverdale, who is followed by Matthews and Becke, takes the passage by storm: "At last I came to this poynte, that I thought; O why art thou so foolish? The right hande of the Most Hyest can chaunge all."

this is. Or as Dr. Waterland renders, This my affliction is a change of the right hand of the Most High, i.e. it proceeds from a change of God's conduct towards me. De Dieu renders, Precari, hoc meum est; mutare dextram Altissimi: To pray, this is my business: to change the right hand of the Most High. I can do nothing else than pray: God is the Ruler of events. Mr. N.M. Berlin translates, Dolere meum hoc est: mutare est dextrae Altissimi: To grieve is my portion: to change (my condition) belongs to the right hand of the Most High.

"Thy way is in the sea." --PSALM lxxvii. 11-20. And the sea appears to be the most trackless of worlds! The sea is the very symbol of mystery, the grim dwelling-house of innumerable things that have been lost. But God's way moves here and there across this trackless wild. God is never lost among our mysteries. He knows his way about. When we are bewildered He sees the road, and He sees the end even from the beginning. Even the sea, in every part of it, is the Lord's highway. When His way is in …

In my alarm I said, "I am cut off from your sight!" Yet you heard my cry for mercy when I called to you for help.
With your hand you drove out the nations and planted our ancestors; you crushed the peoples and made our ancestors flourish.
It was not by their sword that they won the land, nor did their arm bring them victory; it was your right hand, your arm, and the light of your face, for you loved them.
All day long I have been afflicted, and every morning brings new punishments.
I remember the days of long ago; I meditate on all your works and consider what your hands have done.
"When my life was ebbing away, I remembered you, LORD, and my prayer rose to you, to your holy temple.
