Psalm 77
International Standard VersionKing James Bible
1I cry out to God! I cry out to God and he hears me.1To the chief Musician, to Jeduthun, A Psalm of Asaph. I cried unto God with my voice, even unto God with my voice; and he gave ear unto 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.2In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord: my sore ran in the night, and ceased not: my soul refused to be comforted.
3I remember God, and I groan; I meditate, while my spirit grows faint. Interlude3I remembered God, and was troubled: I complained, and my spirit was overwhelmed. Selah.
4You kept my eyes open; I was troubled and couldn't speak.4Thou holdest mine eyes waking: I am so troubled that I cannot speak.
5I thought of ancient times, considering years long past.5I have considered the days of old, the years of ancient times.
6During the night I remembered my song. I meditate in my heart, and my spirit ponders.6I call to remembrance my song in the night: I commune with mine own heart: and my spirit made diligent search.
7Will the Lord reject me forever and not show favor again?7Will the Lord cast off for ever? and will he be favourable no more?
8Has his gracious love ceased forever? Will his promise be unfulfilled in future generations?8Is his mercy clean gone for ever? doth his promise fail for evermore?
9Has God forgotten to be gracious? Has he in anger withheld his compassion? Interlude9Hath God forgotten to be gracious? hath he in anger shut up his tender mercies? Selah.
10So I say: "It causes me pain that the right hand of the Most High has changed."10And I said, This is my infirmity: but I will remember the years of the right hand of the most High.
11I will remember the LORD'S deeds; indeed, I will remember your awesome deeds from long ago.11I will remember the works of the LORD: surely I will remember thy wonders of old.
12As I meditate on all your works, I will consider your awesome deeds.12I will meditate also of all thy work, and talk of thy doings.
13God, your way is holy. What god is like our great God?13Thy way, O God, is in the sanctuary: who is so great a God as our God?
14God, you are the one performing awesome deeds. You reveal your might among the nations.14Thou art the God that doest wonders: thou hast declared thy strength among the people.
15You delivered your people— the descendants of Jacob and Joseph— with your power. Interlude15Thou hast with thine arm redeemed thy people, the sons 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 thee, O God, the waters saw thee; they were afraid: the depths also were troubled.
17The clouds poured rain; the skies rumbled. Indeed, your lightning bolts flashed. 17The clouds poured out water: the skies sent out a sound: thine arrows also went abroad.
18Your thunderous sound was in a whirlwind; your lightning lights up the world; the earth becomes agitated and quakes.18The voice of thy thunder was in the heaven: the lightnings lightened the world: the earth trembled and shook.
19Your way was through the sea, and your path through mighty waters, but your footprints cannot be traced. 19Thy way is in the sea, and thy path in the great waters, and thy footsteps are not known.
20You have led your people like a flock by the hands of Moses and Aaron.20Thou leddest thy people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron.
