Psalms 77

Cut off - As men do their grapes in time of vintage; so the Hebrew verb implies. The spirit - Their breath and life, as he did in the Assyrian army. Night - Which to others was a time of rest and quietness. Troubled - Yea, the thoughts of God were now a matter of trouble, because he was angry with me. Overwhelmed - So far was I from finding relief. Waking - By continual grief. The days - The mighty works of God in former times. My song - The mercies of God vouchsafed to me, and to his people, which have obliged me to sing his praises, not only in the day, but also by night. Cut off - His peculiar people. I said - These suspicions of God's faithfulness proceed from the weakness of my faith. The years - The years wherein God hath done great and glorious works, which are often ascribed to God's right - hand. In holiness - God is holy and just, and true in all his works. Afraid - And stood still, as men astonished, do. Poured - When the Israelites passed over the sea. Arrows - Hail - stones or lightnings. Not known - Because the water returned and covered them. Leddest - First through the sea, and afterwards through the wilderness, with singular care and tenderness, as a shepherd doth his sheep.
