Psalm 77
NET BibleKing James Bible
1For the music director, Jeduthun; a psalm of Asaph. I will cry out to God and call for help! I will cry out to God and he will pay attention to me. 1To the chief Musician, to Jeduthun, A Psalm of Asaph. I cried unto God with my voice, even unto God with my voice; and he gave ear unto me.
2In my time of trouble I sought the Lord. I kept my hand raised in prayer throughout the night. I refused to be comforted. 2In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord: my sore ran in the night, and ceased not: my soul refused to be comforted.
3I said, "I will remember God while I groan; I will think about him while my strength leaves me." (Selah) 3I remembered God, and was troubled: I complained, and my spirit was overwhelmed. Selah.
4You held my eyelids open; I was troubled and could not speak. 4Thou holdest mine eyes waking: I am so troubled that I cannot speak.
5I thought about the days of old, about ancient times. 5I have considered the days of old, the years of ancient times.
6I said, "During the night I will remember the song I once sang; I will think very carefully." I tried to make sense of what was happening. 6I call to remembrance my song in the night: I commune with mine own heart: and my spirit made diligent search.
7I asked, "Will the Lord reject me forever? Will he never again show me his favor? 7Will the Lord cast off for ever? and will he be favourable no more?
8Has his loyal love disappeared forever? Has his promise failed forever? 8Is his mercy clean gone for ever? doth his promise fail for evermore?
9Has God forgotten to be merciful? Has his anger stifled his compassion?" 9Hath God forgotten to be gracious? hath he in anger shut up his tender mercies? Selah.
10Then I said, "I am sickened by the thought that the sovereign One might become inactive. 10And I said, This is my infirmity: but I will remember the years of the right hand of the most High.
11I will remember the works of the LORD. Yes, I will remember the amazing things you did long ago! 11I will remember the works of the LORD: surely I will remember thy wonders of old.
12I will think about all you have done; I will reflect upon your deeds!" 12I will meditate also of all thy work, and talk of thy doings.
13O God, your deeds are extraordinary! What god can compare to our great God? 13Thy way, O God, is in the sanctuary: who is so great a God as our God?
14You are the God who does amazing things; you have revealed your strength among the nations. 14Thou art the God that doest wonders: thou hast declared thy strength among the people.
15You delivered your people by your strength--the children of Jacob and Joseph. (Selah) 15Thou hast with thine arm redeemed thy people, the sons of Jacob and Joseph. Selah.
16The waters saw you, O God, the waters saw you and trembled. Yes, the depths of the sea shook with fear. 16The waters saw thee, O God, the waters saw thee; they were afraid: the depths also were troubled.
17The clouds poured down rain; the skies thundered. Yes, your arrows flashed about. 17The clouds poured out water: the skies sent out a sound: thine arrows also went abroad.
18Your thunderous voice was heard in the wind; the lightning bolts lit up the world; the earth trembled and shook. 18The voice of thy thunder was in the heaven: the lightnings lightened the world: the earth trembled and shook.
19You walked through the sea; you passed through the surging waters, but left no footprints. 19Thy way is in the sea, and thy path in the great waters, and thy footsteps are not known.
20You led your people like a flock of sheep, by the hand of Moses and Aaron. 20Thou leddest thy people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron.
