Arouse Yourself, why do You sleep, O Lord?
Awake, do not reject us forever.
Arise, O Lord, in Your anger;
Lift up Yourself against the rage of my adversaries,
And arouse Yourself for me; You have appointed judgment.
Then the Lord awoke as if from sleep,
Like a warrior overcome by wine.
Stir up Yourself, and awake to my right
And to my cause, my God and my Lord.
“Because of the devastation of the afflicted, because of the groaning of the needy,
Now I will arise,” says the Lord; “I will set him in the safety for which he longs.”
Yet You have rejected us and brought us to dishonor,
And do not go out with our armies.
For no guilt of mine, they run and set themselves against me.
Arouse Yourself to help me, and see!
A Maskil of Asaph.
O God, why have You rejected us forever?
Why does Your anger smoke against the sheep of Your pasture?
Will the Lord reject forever?
And will He never be favorable again?
O Lord, why do You reject my soul?
Why do You hide Your face from me?
Awake, awake, put on strength, O arm of the Lord;
Awake as in the days of old, the generations of long ago.
Was it not You who cut Rahab in pieces,
Who pierced the dragon?
Jesus Himself was in the stern, asleep on the cushion; and they *woke Him and *said to Him, “Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?”
