Psalm 77
New Living TranslationKing James Bible
1I cry out to God; yes, I shout. Oh, that God would listen to 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 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 my trouble I sought the Lord: my sore ran in the night, and ceased not: my soul refused to be comforted.
3I think of God, and I moan, overwhelmed with longing for his help. Interlude3I remembered God, and was troubled: I complained, and my spirit was overwhelmed. Selah.
4You don’t let me sleep. I am too distressed even to pray!4Thou holdest mine eyes waking: I am so troubled that I cannot speak.
5I think of the good old days, long since ended,5I have considered the days of old, the years of ancient times.
6when my nights were filled with joyful songs. I search my soul and ponder the difference now.6I call to remembrance my song in the night: I commune with mine own heart: and my spirit made diligent search.
7Has the Lord rejected me forever? Will he never again be kind to me?7Will the Lord cast off for ever? and will he be favourable no more?
8Is his unfailing love gone forever? Have his promises permanently failed?8Is his mercy clean gone for ever? doth his promise fail for evermore?
9Has God forgotten to be gracious? Has he slammed the door on his compassion? Interlude9Hath God forgotten to be gracious? hath he in anger shut up his tender mercies? Selah.
10And I said, “This is my fate; the Most High has turned his hand against me.”10And I said, This is my infirmity: but I will remember the years of the right hand of the most High.
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: surely I will remember thy wonders of old.
12They are constantly in my thoughts. I cannot stop thinking about your mighty works.12I will meditate also of all thy work, and talk of thy doings.
13O God, your ways are holy. Is there any god as mighty as you?13Thy way, O God, is in the sanctuary: who is so great a God as our God?
14You are the God of great wonders! You demonstrate your awesome power among the nations.14Thou art the God that doest wonders: thou hast declared thy strength among the people.
15By your strong arm, you redeemed your people, the descendants of Jacob and Joseph. Interlude15Thou hast with thine arm redeemed thy 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 thee, O God, the waters saw thee; they were afraid: the depths also were troubled.
17The clouds poured down rain; the thunder rumbled in the sky. Your arrows of lightning flashed.17The clouds poured out water: the skies sent out a sound: thine arrows also went abroad.
18Your thunder roared from the whirlwind; the lightning lit up the world! The earth trembled and shook.18The voice of thy thunder was in the heaven: the lightnings lightened the world: the earth trembled and shook.
19Your road led through the sea, your pathway through the mighty waters— a pathway no one knew was there!19Thy way is in the sea, and thy path in the great waters, and thy footsteps are not known.
20You led your people along that road like a flock of sheep, with Moses and Aaron as their shepherds.20Thou leddest thy people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron.
