Comfort in Trouble from Recalling God's Mighty Deeds.
For the choir director; according F815 to Jeduthun. A Psalm of Asaph.
1 My voice rises to God, and I will cry R2326 aloud;
My voice rises to God, and He will hear me.
2 In the day R2327 of my trouble I sought the Lord;
In R2328 the night my hand R2329 was stretched out without F816 weariness;
My soul refused R2330 to be comforted.
3 When I remember God, then I am disturbed; R2331
When I sigh, R2332 then my R2333 spirit grows faint. Selah. F817
4 You have held my eyelids open;
I am so troubled that I cannot R2334 speak.
5 I have considered the days R2335 of old,
The years of long ago.
6 I will remember my song R2336 in the night;
I will R2337 meditate with my heart,
And my spirit ponders: F818
7 Will the Lord reject R2338 forever?
And will He never R2339 be favorable again?
8 Has His lovingkindness R2340 ceased forever?
Has His promise R2341 F819 come to an end forever? F820
9 Has God forgotten R2342 to be gracious,
Or has He in anger withdrawn F821 His compassion? R2343 Selah.
10 Then I said, "It R2344 is my grief, F822
That the right R2345 hand of the Most High has changed."
11 I shall remember the deeds R2346 of the F823 LORD;
Surely I will remember R2346 Your wonders of old.
12 I will meditate R2347 on all Your work
And muse on Your deeds.
13 Your way, O God, is holy; R2348
What R2349 god is great like our God?
14 You are the God R2350 who works wonders;
You have made R2351 known Your strength among the peoples.
15 You have by Your power F824 redeemed R2352 Your people,
The sons of Jacob and Joseph. R2353 Selah.
16 The waters R2354 saw You, O God;
The waters saw You, they were in anguish;
The deeps also trembled.
17 The clouds R2355 poured out water;
The skies gave R2356 forth a sound;
Your arrows R2357 flashed F825 here and there.
18 The sound R2358 of Your thunder was in the whirlwind;
The lightnings R2359 lit up the world;
The earth R2360 trembled and shook.
19 Your way R2361 was in the sea
And Your paths in the mighty waters,
And Your footprints may not be known.
20 You led R2362 Your people like a flock
By the hand of Moses R2363 and Aaron.
