For the Chief Musician. To Jeduthun. A Psalm by Asaph.
77:1 My cry goes to God!
Indeed, I cry to God for help,
and for him to listen to me.
77:2 In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord.
My hand was stretched out in the night, and didn’t get tired.
My soul refused to be comforted.
77:3 I remember God, and I groan.
I complain, and my spirit is overwhelmed.
77:4 You hold my eyelids open.
I am so troubled that I can’t speak.
77:5 I have considered the days of old,
the years of ancient times.
77:6 I remember my song in the night.
I consider in my own heart;
my spirit diligently inquires:
77:7 “Will the Lord reject us forever?
Will he be favorable no more?
77:8 Has his loving kindness vanished forever?
Does his promise fail for generations?
77:9 Has God forgotten to be gracious?
Has he, in anger, withheld his compassion?”
77:10 Then I thought, “I will appeal to this:
the years of the right hand of the Most High.”
77:11 I will remember Yah’s deeds;
for I will remember your wonders of old.
77:12 I will also meditate on all your work,
and consider your doings.
77:13 Your way, God, is in the sanctuary.
What god is great like God?
77:14 You are the God who does wonders.
You have made your strength known among the peoples.
77:15 You have redeemed your people with your arm,
the sons of Jacob and Joseph.
77:16 The waters saw you, God.
The waters saw you, and they writhed.
The depths also convulsed.
77:17 The clouds poured out water.
The skies resounded with thunder.
Your arrows also flashed around.
77:18 The voice of your thunder was in the whirlwind.
The lightnings lit up the world.
The earth trembled and shook.
77:19 Your way was through the sea;
your paths through the great waters.
Your footsteps were not known.
77:20 You led your people like a flock,
by the hand of Moses and Aaron.
