1 {To the Chanter, for Jeduthun, a Psalm of Asaph} I cried unto God with my voice; yea, even unto God cried I with my voice, and he heard me. 2 In the time of my trouble I sought the LORD, I held up mine hands to him in the night season, for my soul refused all other comfort. 3 When I was in heaviness, I thought upon God: when my heart was vexed, then did I speak. Selah.
4 Thou heldest mine eyes waking, I was so feeble, that I could not speak. 5 Then remembered I the times of old, and the years that were past. 6 I called to remembrance my song in the night, I communed with mine own heart, and sought out my spirit.
7 Will the LORD absent himself forever? Will he be no more intreated? 8 Is his mercy clean gone? Is his promise come utterly to an end for evermore? 9 Hath God forgotten to be gracious? Or, hath he shut up his loving-kindness in displeasure? Selah.
10 At the last, I came to this point, that I thought, "O why art thou so foolish? the righthand of the most highest can change all!" 11 Therefore will I remember the works of the LORD, and call to mind thy wonders of old time. 12 I will speak of all thy works, and my talking shall be of thy doings.
13 Thy way, O God, is holy: who is so great a God as our God? 14 Thou art the God that doest wonders, and hast declared thy power among the people. 15 Thou, with thine arm, hast delivered thy people, even the sons of Jacob and Joseph. Selah.
16 The waters saw thee, O God; the waters saw thee, and were afraid, the depths were moved. 17 The thick clouds poured out water, the air thundered, and thine arrows went abroad. 18 The voice of thy thunder was heard round about; the lightnings shone upon the ground. The earth was moved, and shook withal. 19 Thy way is in the sea, and thy paths in the great waters; and thy footsteps are not known. 20 Thou leddest thy people like sheep, by the hand of Moses and Aaron.
