Psalm 77
New Living TranslationBerean Study Bible
1I cry out to God; yes, I shout. Oh, that God would listen to me!1For the choirmaster. According to Jeduthun. A Psalm of Asaph. I cried out to God; I cried aloud to God to hear me.
2When I was in deep trouble, I searched for the Lord. All night long I prayed, with hands lifted toward heaven, but my soul was not comforted.2In the day of trouble I sought the Lord; through the night my outstretched hands did not grow weary; my soul refused to be comforted.
3I think of God, and I moan, overwhelmed with longing for his help. Interlude3I remembered You, O God, and I groaned; I mused and my spirit grew faint. Selah
4You don’t let me sleep. I am too distressed even to pray!4You have kept my eyes from closing; I am too troubled to speak.
5I think of the good old days, long since ended,5I considered the days of old, the years long in the past.
6when my nights were filled with joyful songs. I search my soul and ponder the difference now.6At night I remembered my song; in my heart I mused, and my spirit pondered:
7Has the Lord rejected me forever? Will he never again be kind to me?7“Will the Lord spurn us forever and never show His favor again?
8Is his unfailing love gone forever? Have his promises permanently failed?8Is His loving devotion gone forever? Has His promise failed for all time?
9Has God forgotten to be gracious? Has he slammed the door on his compassion? Interlude9Has God forgotten to be gracious? Has His anger shut off His compassion?” Selah
10And I said, “This is my fate; the Most High has turned his hand against me.”10So I said, “I am grieved that the right hand of the Most High has changed.”
11But then I recall all you have done, O LORD; I remember your wonderful deeds of long ago.11I will remember the works of the LORD; yes, I will remember Your wonders of old.
12They are constantly in my thoughts. I cannot stop thinking about your mighty works.12I will reflect on all You have done and ponder Your mighty deeds.
13O God, your ways are holy. Is there any god as mighty as you?13Your way, O God, is holy. What god is so great as our God?
14You are the God of great wonders! You demonstrate your awesome power among the nations.14You are the God who works wonders; You display Your strength among the peoples.
15By your strong arm, you redeemed your people, the descendants of Jacob and Joseph. Interlude15With power You redeemed Your people, the sons of Jacob and Joseph. Selah
16When the Red Sea saw you, O God, its waters looked and trembled! The sea quaked to its very depths.16The waters saw You, O God; the waters saw You and swirled; even the depths were shaken.
17The clouds poured down rain; the thunder rumbled in the sky. Your arrows of lightning flashed.17The clouds poured down water; the skies resounded with thunder; Your arrows flashed back and forth.
18Your thunder roared from the whirlwind; the lightning lit up the world! The earth trembled and shook.18Your thunder resounded in the whirlwind; the lightning lit up the world; the earth trembled and quaked.
19Your road led through the sea, your pathway through the mighty waters— a pathway no one knew was there!19Your path led through the sea, Your way through the mighty waters, but Your footprints were not to be found.
20You led your people along that road like a flock of sheep, with Moses and Aaron as their shepherds.20You led Your people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron.
