Confidence in a Time of Crisis
For the choir director: according to Jeduthun. Of Asaph. #1Ch 16:5 A psalm.
1I cry aloud to God,
aloud to God, and He will hear me. #Ps 3:4|NoBook| 142:1
2I sought the Lord in my day of trouble.
My hands were continually lifted up
all night long;
I refused to be comforted. #Gn 37:35Jb 11:13Jr 31:15
3I think of God; I groan;
I meditate; my spirit becomes weak. #Ps 42:5|NoBook| 43:5|NoBook| 55:17|NoBook| 143:4Selah
4You have kept me from closing my eyes;
I am troubled and cannot speak. #Ps 39:9
5I consider days of old,
years long past. #Dt 32:7Ps 143:5
6At night I remember my music;
I meditate in my heart, and my spirit ponders. #Ps 4:4|NoBook| 42:8
7“Will the Lord reject forever
and never again show favor? #Ps 44:9|NoBook| 74:1Lm 2:7|NoBook| 3:31
8Has His faithful love ceased forever?
Is His promise at an end for all generations? #Ps 33:11|NoBook| 85:5|NoBook| 89:49
9Has God forgotten to be gracious?
Has He in anger withheld His compassion? ” #Ps 25:6|NoBook| 40:11Is 49:15Selah
10So I say, “I am grieved # Lit “My piercing
that the right hand of the Most High has changed.” #Ps 31:22|NoBook| 73:14
11I will remember the Lord’s works;
yes, I will remember Your ancient wonders. #Ps 105:5|NoBook| 143:5
12I will reflect on all You have done
and meditate on Your actions. #Ps 9:11|NoBook| 90:16|NoBook| 145:5
13God, Your way is holy.
What god is great like God? #Ex 15:11Ps 71:19|NoBook| 86:8
14You are the God who works wonders;
You revealed Your strength among the peoples. #Ps 72:18|NoBook| 106:8
15With power You redeemed Your people,
the descendants of Jacob and Joseph. #Ex 6:6Dt 9:29Ps 74:2Selah
16The waters saw You, God.
The waters saw You; they trembled.
Even the depths shook. #Ps 114:3Hab 3:8
17The clouds poured down water.
The storm clouds thundered;
Your arrows flashed back and forth. #Ps 18:14Hab 3:11Zch 9:14
18The sound of Your thunder was in the whirlwind;
lightning lit up the world. #Ps 29:3|NoBook| 97:4
The earth shook and quaked. #2Sm 22:8Ps 18:7Is 13:13
19Your way went through the sea
and Your path through the great waters,
but Your footprints were unseen. #Is 43:16
20You led Your people like a flock #Ps 78:52|NoBook| 80:1
by the hand of Moses and Aaron. #Ps 105:26Is 63:11-13
