Psalm 77
NET BibleNew American Standard Bible 1995
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. 1For the choir director; according to Jeduthun. A Psalm of Asaph. My voice rises to God, and I will cry aloud; My voice rises to God, and He will hear 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; In the night my hand was stretched out without weariness; 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) 3When I remember God, then I am disturbed; When I sigh, then my spirit grows faint. Selah.
4You held my eyelids open; I was troubled and could not speak. 4You have held my eyelids open; 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 long ago.
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 will remember my song in the night; I will meditate with my heart, And my spirit ponders:
7I asked, "Will the Lord reject me forever? Will he never again show me his favor? 7Will the Lord reject forever? And will He never be favorable again?
8Has his loyal love disappeared forever? Has his promise failed forever? 8Has His lovingkindness ceased forever? Has His promise come to an end forever?
9Has God forgotten to be merciful? Has his anger stifled his compassion?" 9Has God forgotten to be gracious, Or has He in anger withdrawn His compassion? Selah.
10Then I said, "I am sickened by the thought that the sovereign One might become inactive. 10Then I said, "It is my grief, That the right hand of the Most High has changed."
11I will remember the works of the LORD. Yes, I will remember the amazing things you did long ago! 11I shall remember the deeds of the LORD; Surely I will remember Your wonders of old.
12I will think about all you have done; I will reflect upon your deeds!" 12I will meditate on all Your work And muse on Your deeds.
13O God, your deeds are extraordinary! What god can compare to our great God? 13Your way, O God, is holy; What god is great like our God?
14You are the God who does amazing things; you have revealed your strength among the nations. 14You are the God who works wonders; You have made known Your strength among the peoples.
15You delivered your people by your strength--the children of Jacob and Joseph. (Selah) 15You have by Your power redeemed Your 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 You, O God; The waters saw You, they were in anguish; The deeps also trembled.
17The clouds poured down rain; the skies thundered. Yes, your arrows flashed about. 17The clouds poured out water; The skies gave forth a sound; Your arrows flashed here and there.
18Your thunderous voice was heard in the wind; the lightning bolts lit up the world; the earth trembled and shook. 18The sound of Your thunder was in the whirlwind; The lightnings lit up the world; The earth trembled and shook.
19You walked through the sea; you passed through the surging waters, but left no footprints. 19Your way was in the sea And Your paths in the mighty waters, And Your footprints may not be known.
20You led your people like a flock of sheep, by the hand of Moses and Aaron. 20You led Your people like a flock By the hand of Moses and Aaron.
