[To the chiefe musician,
to Ieduthun,
a Psalme of Asaph.]
1
I cryed vnto God with my voice: euen vnto God with my voice, and he gaue eare vnto me.
2
In the day of my trouble, I sought the Lord;
my sore ranne in the night, and ceased not: my soule refused to be comforted.
3
I remembred God, and was troubled: I complained, and my spirit was ouerwhelmed.
Selah.
4
Thou holdest mine eyes waking: I am so troubled that I cannot speake.
5
I haue considered the dayes of old, the yeeres of auncient times.
6
I call to remembrance my song in the night: I commune with mine owne heart, and my spirit made diligent search.
7
Will the Lord cast off for euer?
and will hee be fauourable no more?
8
Is his mercy cleane gone for euer?
doth his promise faile for euermore?
9
Hath God forgotten to be gracious?
hath he in anger shut vp his tender mercies?
Selah.
10
And I sayd, This is my infirmitie: but I will remember the yeeres of the right hand of the most high.
11
I will remember the workes of the Lord: surely I will remember thy wonders of old.
12
I will meditate also of all thy worke, and talke of thy doings.
13
Thy way, O God, is in the Sanctuarie: who is so great a God, as our God?
14
Thou art the God that doest wonders;
thou hast declared thy strength among the people.
15
Thou hast with thine arme redeemed thy people, the sonnes of Iacob and Ioseph.
Selah.
16
The waters saw thee, O God, the waters saw thee: they were afraid;
the depths also were troubled.
17
The cloudes powred out water, the skies sent out a sound;
thine arrowes also went abroad.
18
The voice of thy thunder was in the heauen: the lightnings lightned the world, the earth trembled and shooke.
19
Thy way is in the sea, and thy path in the great waters: and thy foot-steps are not knowen.
20
Thou leddest thy people like a flock, by the hand of Moses and Aaron.
