In the Day of Trouble I Seek the Lord1 I c cry aloud to God,
aloud to God, and he will hear me.
2 d In the day of my trouble I seek the Lord;
in e the night my f hand is stretched out without wearying;
my soul g refuses to be comforted.
3When I remember God, I h moan;
when I meditate, my spirit faints. Selah
4 You hold my eyelids open;
I am so i troubled that I cannot speak.
5I consider j the days of old,
the years long ago.
6I said, ▼
▼Hebrew lacks I said“Let me remember my l song in the night;
let me m meditate in my heart.”
Then my spirit made a diligent search:
7“Will the Lord n spurn forever,
and never again o be favorable?
8Has his steadfast love forever ceased?
Are his p promises at an end for all time?
9 q Has God forgotten to be gracious?
r Has he in anger shut up his compassion?” Selah
10 Then I said, “I will appeal to this,

11 I will remember the deeds of the Lord;
yes, I will u remember your wonders of old.
12I will ponder all your v work,
and meditate on your w mighty deeds.
13Your way, O God, is x holy.
y What god is great like our God?
14You are the God who z works wonders;
you have aa made known your might among the peoples.
15You ab with your arm redeemed your people,
the children of Jacob and Joseph. Selah
16 When ac the waters saw you, O God,
when the waters saw you, they were afraid;
indeed, the deep trembled.
17The clouds poured out water;
the skies ad gave forth thunder;
your ae arrows flashed on every side.
18 af The crash of your thunder was in the whirlwind;
ag your lightnings lighted up the world;
the earth ah trembled and shook.
19Your ai way was through the sea,
your path through the great waters;
yet your footprints aj were unseen. ▼
20You al led your people like a flock
by the hand of Moses and Aaron.
