Were you angry with the rivers,1 O LORD? Was your wrath against the streams? Did you rage against the sea2 when you rode with your horses and your victorious chariots?39
You uncovered your bow, you called for many arrows.4 "Selah" You split the earth with rivers;
the mountains saw you and writhed.5 Torrents of water swept by; the deep roared6 and lifted its waves7 on high.
Sun and moon stood still8 in the heavens at the glint of your flying arrows,9 at the lightning10 of your flashing spear.
In wrath you strode through the earth and in anger you threshed11 the nations.
You came out12 to deliver13 your people, to save your anointed14 one. You crushed15 the leader of the land of wickedness, you stripped him from head to foot. "Selah"
With his own spear you pierced his head when his warriors stormed out to scatter us,16 gloating as though about to devour the wretched17 who were in hiding.
You trampled the sea18 with your horses, churning the great waters.1916
I heard and my heart pounded, my lips quivered at the sound; decay crept into my bones, and my legs trembled.20 Yet I will wait patiently21 for the day of calamity to come on the nation invading us.
Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food,22 though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls,2318
yet I will rejoice in the LORD,24 I will be joyful in God my Savior.25
