For the [music] director, on Jeduthun. Of Asaph. A psalm.

Remembering God’s Help for Israel

1 I cry out with my voice to God; with my voice to God, that he may hear me.
2 In the day I [have] trouble, I seek the Lord. At night my hand stretches out {continually}; my soul refuses to be comforted.
3 I remember God and I groan loudly; I meditate and my spirit grows faint.
4 You hold [open] my eyelids. I am troubled and cannot speak.
5 I think about [the] days from long ago, [the] years of ancient times.
6 I remember my song in the night. With my heart I meditate, and my spirit searches [to understand].
7 Will the Lord reject [us] forever, and will he never be pleased [with us] again?
8 Has his loyal love ceased forever? Is [his] promise ended throughout generations?
9 Has God forgotten to have compassion? Or has he closed off his mercies in anger? Selah
10 So I said, "This pierces me-- the right [hand] of the Most High [has] changed."
11 I will remember the deeds of Yah. Surely I will remember your wonders from long ago.
12 I will also muse on all your work, and meditate on your deeds.
13 O God, your way [is] distinctive. Who [is] a great god like [our] God?
14 You [are] the God who works wonders; you have made known your might among the peoples.
15 With [your] arm you redeemed your people, the children of Jacob and Joseph. Selah
16 Waters saw you, O God; waters saw you [and] they trembled. Surely [the] deeps shook.
17 [The] clouds poured out water. [The] skies {thundered}. Your arrows also {flew about}.
18 The sound of your thunder [was] in the whirlwind; lightnings lit [the] world; the earth shook and quaked.
19 Your way [was] through the sea, and your path through many waters. Yet your footprints were not discerned.
20 You led your people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron.
