Tehillim (Psalms) 77
1My voice is to Elohim, and I cry; My voice is to Elohim, and He listened to me.
2In the day of my distress I sought יהוה; My hand was stretched out in the night And it did not cease, My being refused to be comforted.
3I remembered Elohim, and groaned; I complained, and my spirit grew faint. Selah.
4You ceased the watches of my eyes, I was too troubled to speak.
5I have thought about the days of old, The years long past.
6I remember my song in the night, I meditate within my heart, And my spirit searches diligently.
7Would יהוה reject forever, And never again be pleased?
8Has His loving-commitment ceased forever, Has the promise failed for all generations?
9Has Ěl forgotten to show favour? Has He shut up His compassions in displeasure? Selah.
10And I said, “This is my grief: That the right hand of the Most High has changed.”
11I remember the deeds of Yah, For I remember Your wonders of old.
12And I shall meditate on all Your work, And talk of Your deeds.
13Your way, O Elohim, is in Set-apartness;#See Isa. 35:8 Who is a great Ěl like Elohim?
14You are the Ěl who does wonders; You have made known Your strength among the peoples.
15By Your arm You have redeemed Your people, The sons of Ya‛aqoḇ and Yosĕph. Selah.
16The waters saw You, O Elohim; The waters saw You, they were afraid; The depths also trembled.
17The clouds poured out water; The heavens rumbled; Also, Your arrows flashed back and forth.
18The voice of Your thunder rolled along; Lightnings lit up the world; The earth trembled and shook.
19Your way was in the sea, And Your path in the great waters, And Your footsteps were not known.
20You did lead Your people like a flock By the hand of Mosheh and Aharon.
