dPs. 86:7; [Ps. 20:1; 50:15; Isa. 26:16]
In the Day of Trouble I Seek the Lord
To the choirmaster: according to aJeduthun. A Psalm of bAsaph.1 I ccry aloud to God,
aloud to God, and he will hear me.
2 dIn the day of my trouble I seek the Lord;
in ethe night my fhand is stretched out without wearying;
my soul grefuses to be comforted.
3When I remember God, I hmoan;
when I meditate, my spirit faints. Selah
4 You hold my eyelids open;
I am so itroubled that I cannot speak.
5I consider jthe days of old,
the years long ago.
6I said, ▼
▼Hebrew lacks I said“Let me remember my lsong in the night;
let me mmeditate in my heart.”
Then my spirit made a diligent search:
7“Will the Lord nspurn forever,
and never again obe favorable?
8Has his steadfast love forever ceased?
Are his ppromises at an end for all time?
9 qHas God forgotten to be gracious?
rHas he in anger shut up his compassion?” Selah

13Your way, O God, is xholy.
yWhat god is great like our God?
14You are the God who zworks wonders;
you have aamade known your might among the peoples.
15You abwith your arm redeemed your people,
the children of Jacob and Joseph. Selah
16 When acthe waters saw you, O God,
when the waters saw you, they were afraid;
indeed, the deep trembled.
17The clouds poured out water;
the skies adgave forth thunder;
your aearrows flashed on every side.
18 afThe crash of your thunder was in the whirlwind;
agyour lightnings lighted up the world;
the earth ahtrembled and shook.
19Your aiway was through the sea,
your path through the great waters;
yet your footprints ajwere unseen. ▼
20You alled your people like a flock
by the hand of Moses and Aaron.
