I looked, but there was no one1 to help, I was appalled that no one gave support; so my own arm2 worked salvation for me, and my own wrath sustained me.36
I trampled4 the nations in my anger; in my wrath I made them drunk5 and poured their blood6 on the ground."
I will tell of the kindnesses7 of the LORD, the deeds for which he is to be praised, according to all the LORD has done for us-- yes, the many good things8 he has done for the house of Israel, according to his compassion9 and many kindnesses.
He said, "Surely they are my people,10 sons who will not be false to me"; and so he became their Savior.119
In all their distress he too was distressed, and the angel12 of his presence13 saved them. In his love and mercy he redeemed14 them; he lifted them up and carried15 them all the days of old.1610
Yet they rebelled17 and grieved his Holy Spirit.18 So he turned and became their enemy19 and he himself fought20 against them.
Then his people recalleda the days of old, the days of Moses and his people-- where is he who brought them through the sea,21 with the shepherd of his flock?22 Where is he who set his Holy Spirit23 among them,
who sent his glorious arm24 of power to be at Moses' right hand, who divided the waters25 before them, to gain for himself everlasting renown,2613
who led27 them through the depths?28 Like a horse in open country, they did not stumble;2914
like cattle that go down to the plain, they were given rest30 by the Spirit of the LORD. This is how you guided your people to make for yourself a glorious name.
Look down from heaven31 and see from your lofty throne,32 holy and glorious. Where are your zeal33 and your might? Your tenderness and compassion34 are withheld35 from us.
