|Comfort in Trouble from Recalling Gods Mighty Deeds|
|For the Chief Musician; after the manner of Jeduthun. A Psalm of Asaph.|
| ||I WILL cry unto God with my voice,|
Even unto God with my voice; and he will give ear unto me.
| ||In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord:|
My hand was stretched out in the night, and slacked not;
My soul refused to be comforted.
| ||I remember God, and am disquieted:|
I complain, and my spirit is 1 overwhelmed. [Selah
| ||Thou holdest mine eyes watching:|
I am so troubled that I cannot speak.
| ||I have considered the days of old,|
The years of ancient times.
| ||I call to remembrance my song in the night:|
I commune with mine own heart;
And my spirit maketh diligent search.
| ||Will the Lord cast off for ever?|
And will he be favorable no more?
| ||Is his lovingkindness clean gone for ever?|
Doth his promise fail for evermore?
| ||Hath God forgotten to be gracious?|
Hath he in anger shut up his tender mercies? [Selah
| ||And I said, This 2 is my infirmity;|
But I will remember the years of the right hand of the Most High.
| ||I will make mention of the deeds of Jehovah; 3|
For I will remember thy wonders of old.
| ||I will meditate also upon all thy work,|
And muse on thy doings.
| ||Thy way, O God, is in 4 the sanctuary:|
Who is a great god like unto God?
| ||Thou art the God that doest wonders:|
Thou hast made known thy strength among the peoples.
| ||Thou hast with thine arm redeemed thy people,|
The sons of Jacob and Joseph. [Selah
| ||The waters saw thee, O God;|
The waters saw thee, they were 5 afraid:
The depths also trembled.
| ||The clouds poured out water;|
The skies sent out a sound:
Thine arrows also went abroad.
| ||The voice of thy thunder was in the whirlwind;|
The lightnings lightened the world:
The earth trembled and shook.
| ||Thy way was in the sea,|
And thy paths in the great waters,
And thy footsteps were not known.
| ||Thou leddest thy people like a flock,|
By the hand of Moses and Aaron.
