In the Day of Trouble I Sought the LORD1 For the choirmaster. According to Jeduthun. A Psalm of Asaph. I cried aloud to God, I cried out to God to hear me. 2 In the day of trouble I sought the Lord; through the night my outstretched hands did not grow weary; my soul refused to be comforted. 3 I remembered You, O God, and I groaned; I mused [and] my spirit grew faint. Selah 4 You have kept my eyes from closing; I am too troubled to speak. 5 I considered days of old, years long in the past. 6 At night I remembered my song; in my heart I mused, [and] my spirit pondered: 7 “Will the Lord spurn [us] forever and never show His favor again? 8 Is His loving devotion gone forever? Has His promise failed for all time? 9 Has God forgotten to be gracious? Has His anger shut off His compassion?” Selah 10 So I said, “I am grieved that the right hand of the Most High has changed.” 11 I will remember the works of the LORD; yes, I will remember Your wonders of old. 12 I will reflect on all You have done and ponder Your mighty deeds. 13 Your way, O God, is holy. What god [is so] great as [our] God? 14 You are the God who works wonders; You display Your strength among the peoples. 15 With power You redeemed Your people, the sons of Jacob and Joseph. Selah 16 The waters saw You, O God; the waters saw You and swirled; even the depths were shaken. 17 The clouds poured down water; the skies resounded with thunder; Your arrows flashed back and forth. 18 Your thunder resounded in the whirlwind; the lightning lit up the world; the earth trembled and quaked. 19 Your path led through the sea, Your way through the mighty waters, but Your footprints were not to be found. ▼
▼Or were unknown20 You led Your people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron.
