To the chief Musician. On Jeduthun. Of Asaph. A Psalm.
1My voice is unto God#GodHebrew: Elohim and I will cry; my voice is unto God#GodHebrew: Elohim and he will give ear unto me. 2In the day of my trouble, I sought the Lord: my hand was stretched out in the night, and slacked not; my soul refused to be comforted. 3I remembered God#GodHebrew: Elohim and I moaned; I complained, and my spirit was overwhelmed. Selah. 4Thou holdest open mine eyelids; I am full of disquiet and cannot speak. 5I consider the days of old, the years of ancient times. 6I remember my song in the night; I muse in mine own heart, and my spirit maketh diligent search. 7Will the Lord cast off for ever? and will he be favourable no more? 8Hath his loving-kindness ceased for ever? hath his word come to an end from generation to generation? 9Hath ·God#GodHebrew: El forgotten to be gracious? or hath he in anger shut up his tender mercies? Selah. 10Then said I, This is my weakness: --the years of the right hand of the Most High
11Will I remember, --the works of Jah; for I will remember thy wonders of old, 12And I will meditate upon all thy work, and muse upon thy doings. 13O God#GodHebrew: Elohim thy way is in the sanctuary: who is so great a god#godHebrew: el as God#GodHebrew: Elohim 14Thou art the ·God#GodHebrew: El that doest wonders; thou hast declared thy strength among the peoples. 15Thou hast with thine arm redeemed thy people, the sons of Jacob and Joseph. Selah. 16The waters saw thee, O God#GodHebrew: Elohim the waters saw thee; they trembled, yea, the depths were troubled: 17The thick clouds poured out water; the skies sent out a sound, yea, thine arrows went abroad: 18The voice of thy thunder was in the whirlwind, lightnings lit up the world; the earth was troubled and it quaked. 19Thy way is in the sea, and thy paths are in the great waters; and thy footsteps are not known. 20Thou leddest thy people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron.
