77 I cry out to God; I call to God, and he ·will hear [or heard] me. 2 I ·look [sought] for the Lord on the day of ·trouble [L my distress]. All night long I ·reach out my untiring hands [L flow forth my hand and it does not grow weak], but I ·cannot [refuse to] be comforted. 3 When I remember God, I ·become upset [moan]; when I ·think [reflect; meditate], ·I become afraid [my soul faints]. ·Selah[Interlude]
4 You ·keep my eyes from closing [L grab the eyelids of my eyes]. I am too ·upset [disturbed] to say anything. 5 I keep thinking about the old days, the years of long ago [C when things were going well]. 6 At night I remember my songs. I ·think [meditate] and ·I ask myself [L my spirit inquires]: 7 “Will the Lord reject us forever? Will he never be ·kind [favorable] to us again? 8 Is his ·love [loyalty] gone forever? Has he stopped speaking for all time [C he questions God’s commitment to the covenant]? 9 Has God forgotten ·mercy [compassion]? Is he too angry to ·pity [have mercy on] us?” ·Selah[Interlude] 10 Then I say, “This is what makes me sad: ·For years the power of God Most High was with us [L The right hand of the God Most High has changed].”
11 I remember what the Lord did; I remember the ·miracles [wonderful acts] you did long ago. 12 I ·think [mused] about all the things you did and ·consider [meditated on] your deeds.
13 God, your ways are holy. ·No god [L What god…?] is as great as our God. 14 You are the God who does ·miracles [wonders]; you have ·shown [made known to] people your power. 15 By your ·power [L arm] you have ·saved [redeemed] your people, the descendants of Jacob and Joseph. ·Selah[Interlude]
16 God, the waters saw you; they saw you and ·became afraid [L writhed]; the deep waters shook with fear. 17 The clouds poured down their rain. The ·sky [clouds] ·thundered [L gave forth a sound]. Your lightning flashed back and forth like arrows. 18 Your thunder sounded in the whirlwind. Lightning lit up the world. The earth trembled and ·shook [quaked]. 19 You made a way through the sea and paths through the ·deep [L many] waters, but your footprints were not ·seen [revealed]. 20 You led your people like a flock by ·using [L the hand of] Moses and Aaron [Ex. 14–15].
