Chapter 77

1

<To the chief music-maker. After Jeduthun. Of Asaph. A Psalm.>\

2

\77:1\I was crying to God with my voice; even to God with my voice, and he gave ear to me.

3

\77:2\In the day of my trouble, my heart was turned to the Lord: my hand was stretched out in the night without resting; my soul would not be comforted.

4

\77:3\I will keep God in memory, with sounds of grief; my thoughts are troubled, and my spirit is overcome. (Selah.)

5

\77:4\You keep my eyes from sleep; I am so troubled that no words come.

6

\77:5\My thoughts go back to the days of the past, to the years which are gone.

7

\77:6\The memory of my song comes back to me in the night; my thoughts are moving in my heart; my spirit is searching with care.

8

\77:7\Will the Lord put me away for ever? will he be kind no longer?

9

\77:8\Is his mercy quite gone for ever? has his word come to nothing?

10

\77:9\Has God put away the memory of his pity? are his mercies shut up by his wrath? (Selah.)

11

\77:10\And I said, It is a weight on my spirit; but I will keep in mind the years of the right hand of the Most High.

12

\77:11\I will keep in mind the works of Jah: I will keep the memory of your wonders in the past.

13

\77:12\I will give thought to all your work, while my mind goes over your acts of power.

14

\77:13\Your way, O God, is holy: what god is so great as our God?

15

\77:14\You are the God who does works of power: you have made your strength clear to the nations.

16

\77:15\With your arm you have made your people free, the sons of Jacob and Joseph. (Selah.)

17

\77:16\The waters saw you, O God; the waters saw you, they were in fear: even the deep was troubled.

18

\77:17\The clouds sent out water; the skies gave out a sound; truly, your arrows went far and wide.

19

\77:18\The voice of your thunder went rolling on; the world was flaming with the light of the storm; the earth was shaking.

20

\77:19\Your way was in the sea, and your road in the great waters; there was no knowledge of your footsteps.

21

\77:20\You were guiding your people like a flock, by the hand of Moses and Aaron.
