- To the Overseer, for Jeduthun.
— A Psalm of Asaph.
My voice [is] to God, and I cry, my voice [is] to God, And He hath given ear unto me.
- In a day of my distress the Lord I sought, My hand by night hath been spread out, And it doth not cease, My soul hath refused to be comforted.
- I remember God, and make a noise, I meditate, and feeble is my spirit.
- Thou hast taken hold of the watches of mine eyes, I have been moved, and I speak not.
- I have reckoned the days of old, The years of the ages.
- I remember my music in the night, With my heart I meditate, and my spirit doth search diligently:
- To the ages doth the Lord cast off? Doth He add to be pleased no more?
- Hath His kindness ceased for ever? The saying failed to all generations?
- Hath God forgotten [His] favours? Hath He shut up in anger His mercies? Selah.
- And I say: `My weakness is, The changes of the right hand of the Most High.'
- I mention the doings of Jah, For I remember of old Thy wonders,
- And I have meditated on all Thy working, And I talk concerning Thy doings.
- O God, in holiness [is] Thy way, Who [is] a great god like God?
- Thou [art] the God doing wonders.
Thou hast made known among the peoples Thy strength,
- Thou hast redeemed with strength Thy people, The sons of Jacob and Joseph.
- The waters have seen Thee, O God, The waters have seen Thee, They are afraid — also depths are troubled.
- Poured out waters have thick clouds, The skies have given forth a noise, Also — Thine arrows go up and down.
- The voice of Thy thunder [is] in the spheres, Lightnings have lightened the world, The earth hath trembled, yea, it shaketh.
- In the sea [is] Thy way, And Thy paths [are] in many waters, And Thy tracks have not been known.
- Thou hast led as a flock Thy people, By the hand of Moses and Aaron!
