Psalm 77 RSV/NIV - Online Parallel Bible

Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
1 To the choirmaster: according to Jeduthun. A Psalm of Asaph. I cry aloud to God, aloud to God, that he may hear me. 1 I cried out to God for help; I cried out to God to hear me.
2 In the day of my trouble I seek the Lord; in the night my hand is stretched out without wearying; my soul refuses to be comforted. 2 When I was in distress, I sought the Lord; at night I stretched out untiring hands and my soul refused to be comforted.
3 I think of God, and I moan; I meditate, and my spirit faints. [Selah] 3 I remembered you, O God, and I groaned; I mused, and my spirit grew faint. "Selah"
4 Thou dost hold my eyelids from closing; I am so troubled that I cannot speak. 4 You kept my eyes from closing; I was too troubled to speak.
5 I consider the days of old, I remember the years long ago. 5 I thought about the former days, the years of long ago;
6 I commune with my heart in the night; I meditate and search my spirit: 6 I remembered my songs in the night. My heart mused and my spirit inquired:
7 "Will the Lord spurn for ever, and never again be favorable? 7 "Will the Lord reject forever? Will he never show his favor again?
8 Has his steadfast love for ever ceased? Are his promises at an end for all time? 8 Has his unfailing love vanished forever? Has his promise failed for all time?
9 Has God forgotten to be gracious? Has he in anger shut up his compassion?" [Selah] 9 Has God forgotten to be merciful? Has he in anger withheld his compassion?" "Selah"
10 And I say, "It is my grief that the right hand of the Most High has changed." 10 Then I thought, "To this I will appeal: the years of the right hand of the Most High."
11 I will call to mind the deeds of the LORD; yea, I will remember thy wonders of old. 11 I will remember the deeds of the LORD; yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago.
12 I will meditate on all thy work, and muse on thy mighty deeds. 12 I will meditate on all your works and consider all your mighty deeds.
13 Thy way, O God, is holy. What god is great like our God? 13 Your ways, O God, are holy. What god is so great as our God?
14 Thou art the God who workest wonders, who hast manifested thy might among the peoples. 14 You are the God who performs miracles; you display your power among the peoples.
15 Thou didst with thy arm redeem thy people, the sons of Jacob and Joseph. [Selah] 15 With your mighty arm you redeemed your people, the descendants of Jacob and Joseph. "Selah"
16 When the waters saw thee, O God, when the waters saw thee, they were afraid, yea, the deep trembled. 16 The waters saw you, O God, the waters saw you and writhed; the very depths were convulsed.
17 The clouds poured out water; the skies gave forth thunder; thy arrows flashed on every side. 17 The clouds poured down water, the skies resounded with thunder; your arrows flashed back and forth.
18 The crash of thy thunder was in the whirlwind; thy lightnings lighted up the world; the earth trembled and shook. 18 Your thunder was heard in the whirlwind, your lightning lit up the world; the earth trembled and quaked.
19 Thy way was through the sea, thy path through the great waters; yet thy footprints were unseen. 19 Your path led through the sea, your way through the mighty waters, though your footprints were not seen.
20 Thou didst lead thy people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron. 20 You led your people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron.
