Comfort in Trouble from Recalling God’s Mighty Deeds.
To the Chief Musician; according to Jeduthun [one of David’s three chief musicians, founder of an official musical family]. A Psalm of Asaph.
77 My voice rises to God, and I will cry aloud; My voice rises to God, and He will hear me. 2 In the day of my trouble I [desperately] sought the Lord; In the night my hand was [a]stretched out [in prayer] without weariness; My soul refused to be comforted. 3 I remember God; then I am disquieted and I groan; I sigh [in prayer], and my spirit grows faint. Selah. 4 You have held my eyelids open; I am so troubled that I cannot speak. 5 I have considered the ancient days, The years [of prosperity] of long, long ago. 6 I will remember my song in the night; I will meditate with my heart, And my spirit searches:
7 Will the Lord reject forever? And will He never be favorable again? 8 Has His lovingkindness ceased forever? Have His promises ended for all time? 9 Has God forgotten to be gracious? Or has He in anger withdrawn His compassion? Selah. 10 And I said, “This is my grief, That the right hand of the Most High has changed [and His lovingkindness is withheld].”
11 I will [solemnly] remember the deeds of the Lord; Yes, I will [wholeheartedly] remember Your wonders of old. 12 I will meditate on all Your works And thoughtfully consider all Your [great and wondrous] deeds. 13 Your way, O God, is holy [far from sin and guilt]. What god is great like our God? 14 You are the [awesome] God who works [powerful] wonders; You have demonstrated Your power among the people. 15 You have with Your [great] arm redeemed Your people, The sons of Jacob and Joseph. Selah.
16 The waters [of the Red Sea] saw You, O God; The waters saw You, they were in anguish; The deeps also trembled. 17 The clouds poured down water; The skies sent out a sound [of rumbling thunder]; Your arrows (lightning) flashed here and there. 18 The voice of Your thunder was in the [b]whirlwind; The lightnings illumined the world; The earth trembled and shook. 19 Your way [of escape for Your people] was through the sea, And Your paths through the great waters, And Your footprints were not traceable. 20 You led Your people like a flock By the hand of Moses and Aaron [to the promised goal].
