1 «To the chief Musician, to Jeduthun, A Psalm of Asaph.» I cried unto God with my voice, [even] unto God with my voice; and he gave ear unto me.
2 In the day of my trouble I sought ye Lord: my sore ranne and ceased not in the night: my soule refused comfort.
3 I remembered God, and was troubled: I complained, and my spirit was overwhelmed. Selah.
4 Thou holdest mine eyes waking: I am so troubled that I cannot speak.
5 Then I considered the daies of olde, and the yeeres of ancient time.
6 I call to remembrance my song in the night: I commune with mine own heart: and my spirit made diligent search.
7 Will the Lorde absent him selfe for euer? and will he shewe no more fauour?
8 Is his mercy clean gone for ever? doth [his] promise fail for evermore?
9 Hath God forgotten to be mercifull? hath he shut vp his teder mercies in displeasure? Selah.
10 And I said, This [is] my infirmity: [but I will remember] the years of the right hand of the most High.
11 I remembred the workes of the Lorde: certainely I remembred thy wonders of olde.
12 I did also meditate all thy woorkes, and did deuise of thine actes, saying,
13 Thy way, O God, [is] in the sanctuary: who [is so] great a God as [our] God?
14 Thou art ye God that doest wonders: thou hast declared thy power among the people.
15 Thou hast redeemed thy people with thine arme, euen the sonnes of Iaakob & Ioseph. Selah.
16 The waters saw thee, O God, the waters saw thee; they were afraid: the depths also were troubled.
17 The clouds poured out water: the skies sent out a sound: thine arrows also went abroad.
18 The voyce of thy thunder was rounde about: the lightnings lightened the worlde: the earth trembled and shooke.
19 Thy way [is] in the sea, and thy path in the great waters, and thy footsteps are not known.
20 Thou diddest leade thy people like sheepe by the hand of Moses and Aaron.
