1 I cry out with my voice to God; with my voice to God, that he may hear me. 2 In the day I [have] trouble, I seek the Lord. At night my hand stretches out {continually}; my soul refuses to be comforted. 3 I remember God and I groan loudly; I meditate and my spirit grows faint.
4 You hold [open] my eyelids. I am troubled and cannot speak. 5 I think about [the] days from long ago, [the] years of ancient times. 6 I remember my song in the night. With my heart I meditate, and my spirit searches [to understand].
7 Will the Lord reject [us] forever, and will he never be pleased [with us] again? 8 Has his loyal love ceased forever? Is [his] promise ended throughout generations? 9 Has God forgotten to have compassion? Or has he closed off his mercies in anger? Selah
10 So I said, "This pierces me-- the right [hand] of the Most High [has] changed." 11 I will remember the deeds of Yah. Surely I will remember your wonders from long ago. 12 I will also muse on all your work, and meditate on your deeds.
13 O God, your way [is] distinctive. Who [is] a great god like [our] God? 14 You [are] the God who works wonders; you have made known your might among the peoples. 15 With [your] arm you redeemed your people, the children of Jacob and Joseph. Selah
16 Waters saw you, O God; waters saw you [and] they trembled. Surely [the] deeps shook. 17 [The] clouds poured out water. [The] skies {thundered}. Your arrows also {flew about}. 18 The sound of your thunder [was] in the whirlwind; lightnings lit [the] world; the earth shook and quaked. 19 Your way [was] through the sea, and your path through many waters. Yet your footprints were not discerned. 20 You led your people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron.
