Psalm 77

77
In the Day of Trouble I Seek the Lord
To the choirmaster: according to #Ps. 39, title Jeduthun. A Psalm of #Ps. 50, titleAsaph.
1I #See Ps. 3:4cry aloud to God,
aloud to God, and he will hear me.
2 # Ps. 86:7; [Ps. 20:1; 50:15; Isa. 26:16] In the day of my trouble I seek the Lord;
in #Ps. 63:6; Isa. 26:9 the night my #[Ps. 143:6] hand is stretched out without wearying;
my soul #Gen. 37:35refuses to be comforted.
3When I remember God, I #Ps. 42:5, 11; 43:5moan;
when I meditate, my spirit faints. Selah
4You hold my eyelids open;
I am so #[Gen. 41:8]troubled that I cannot speak.
5I consider #ver. 10, 11; Ps. 44:1; 143:5; Deut. 32:7; Isa. 51:9the days of old,
the years long ago.
6I said,#77:6 Hebrew lacks I said “Let me remember my #See Ps. 42:8 song in the night;
let me #Ps. 4:4meditate in my heart.”
Then my spirit made a diligent search:
7“Will the Lord #See Ps. 44:9 spurn forever,
and never again #Ps. 85:1be favorable?
8Has his steadfast love forever ceased?
Are his #[Rom. 9:6]promises at an end for all time?
9 # [Isa. 49:15] Has God forgotten to be gracious?
# [Hab. 3:2] Has he in anger shut up his compassion?” Selah
10Then I said, “I will appeal to this,
to the years of the #[Ps. 118:15]right hand of the Most High.”#77:10 Or This is my grief: that the right hand of the Most High has changed
11I will remember the deeds of the Lord;
yes, I will #ver. 5; Ps. 105:5remember your wonders of old.
12I will ponder all your #Ps. 90:16 work,
and meditate on your #Ps. 9:11mighty deeds.
13Your way, O God, is #Ps. 73:17 holy.
# See Ps. 35:10 What god is great like our God?
14You are the God who #See Ps. 72:18 works wonders;
you have #Ps. 106:8made known your might among the peoples.
15You #[Ps. 74:2; Ex. 6:6; Deut. 9:29]with your arm redeemed your people,
the children of Jacob and Joseph. Selah
16When #Ps. 114:3; Ex. 14:21; Josh. 3:15, 16; Hab. 3:10the waters saw you, O God,
when the waters saw you, they were afraid;
indeed, the deep trembled.
17The clouds poured out water;
the skies #[Ps. 68:33] gave forth thunder;
your #See Ps. 18:14arrows flashed on every side.
18 # Ps. 104:7 The crash of your thunder was in the whirlwind;
# Ps. 97:4 your lightnings lighted up the world;
the earth #See Ps. 18:7trembled and shook.
19Your #Hab. 3:15 way was through the sea,
your path through the great waters;
yet your footprints #See Ps. 36:6were unseen.#77:19 Hebrew unknown
20You #Ps. 78:52, 53; 80:1; Ex. 13:21; 14:19; Isa. 63:11, 12led your people like a flock
by the hand of Moses and Aaron.
