{To the chief Musician.
On Jeduthun.
Of Asaph.
A Psalm.}
My voice is unto God, and I will cry;
my voice is unto God, and he will give ear unto me.
2
In the day of my trouble, I sought the Lord: my hand was stretched out in the night, and slacked not;
my soul refused to be comforted.
3
I remembered God, and I moaned;
I complained, and my spirit was overwhelmed.
Selah.
4
Thou holdest open mine eyelids;
I am full of disquiet and cannot speak.
5
I consider the days of old, the years of ancient times.
6
I remember my song in the night;
I muse in mine own heart, and my spirit maketh diligent search.
7
Will the Lord cast off for ever?
and will he be favourable no more?
8
Hath his loving-kindness ceased for ever?
hath [his] word come to an end from generation to generation?
9
Hath God forgotten to be gracious?
or hath he in anger shut up his tender mercies?
Selah.
10
Then said I, This is my weakness: — the years of the right hand of the Most High
11
Will I remember, — the works of Jah;
for I will remember thy wonders of old,
12
And I will meditate upon all thy work, and muse upon thy doings.
13
O God, thy way is in the sanctuary: who is so great a god as God?
14
Thou art the God that doest wonders;
thou hast declared thy strength among the peoples.
15
Thou hast with [thine] arm redeemed thy people, the sons of Jacob and Joseph.
Selah.
16
The waters saw thee, O God, the waters saw thee;
they trembled, yea, the depths were troubled:
17
The thick clouds poured out water;
the skies sent out a sound, yea, thine arrows went abroad:
18
The voice of thy thunder was in the whirlwind, lightnings lit up the world;
the earth was troubled and it quaked.
19
Thy way is in the sea, and thy paths are in the great waters;
and thy footsteps are not known.
20
Thou leddest thy people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron.
