Psalm 77
International Standard VersionHolman Christian Standard Bible
1I cry out to God! I cry out to God and he hears me.1For the choir director: according to Jeduthun. Of Asaph. A psalm. I cry aloud to God, aloud to God, and He will hear me.
2When I was in distress, I sought the Lord; my hands were raised at night and they did not grow weary. I refused to be comforted.2I sought the Lord in my day of trouble. My hands were continually lifted up all night long; I refused to be comforted.
3I remember God, and I groan; I meditate, while my spirit grows faint. Interlude3I think of God; I groan; I meditate; my spirit becomes weak. Selah
4You kept my eyes open; I was troubled and couldn't speak.4You have kept me from closing my eyes; I am troubled and cannot speak.
5I thought of ancient times, considering years long past.5I consider days of old, years long past.
6During the night I remembered my song. I meditate in my heart, and my spirit ponders.6At night I remember my music; I meditate in my heart, and my spirit ponders."
7Will the Lord reject me forever and not show favor again?7Will the Lord reject forever and never again show favor?
8Has his gracious love ceased forever? Will his promise be unfulfilled in future generations?8Has His faithful love ceased forever? Is His promise at an end for all generations?
9Has God forgotten to be gracious? Has he in anger withheld his compassion? Interlude9Has God forgotten to be gracious? Has He in anger withheld His compassion?" Selah
10So I say: "It causes me pain that the right hand of the Most High has changed."10So I say, "I am grieved that the right hand of the Most High has changed."
11I will remember the LORD'S deeds; indeed, I will remember your awesome deeds from long ago.11I will remember the LORD's works; yes, I will remember Your ancient wonders.
12As I meditate on all your works, I will consider your awesome deeds.12I will reflect on all You have done and meditate on Your actions.
13God, your way is holy. What god is like our great God?13God, Your way is holy. What god is great like God?
14God, you are the one performing awesome deeds. You reveal your might among the nations.14You are the God who works wonders; You revealed Your strength among the peoples.
15You delivered your people— the descendants of Jacob and Joseph— with your power. Interlude15With power You redeemed Your people, the descendants of Jacob and Joseph. Selah
16The waters saw you, God; the waters saw you and writhed. Indeed, the depths of the sea quaked.16The waters saw You, God. The waters saw You; they trembled. Even the depths shook.
17The clouds poured rain; the skies rumbled. Indeed, your lightning bolts flashed. 17The clouds poured down water. The storm clouds thundered; Your arrows flashed back and forth.
18Your thunderous sound was in a whirlwind; your lightning lights up the world; the earth becomes agitated and quakes.18The sound of Your thunder was in the whirlwind; lightning lit up the world. The earth shook and quaked.
19Your way was through the sea, and your path through mighty waters, but your footprints cannot be traced. 19Your way went through the sea and Your path through the great waters, but Your footprints were unseen.
20You have led your people like a flock by the hands of Moses and Aaron.20You led Your people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron.
