NASB — Psalms 77 — KJV

Comfort in Trouble from Recalling God’s Mighty Deeds.

For the choir director; according to Jeduthun. A Psalm of Asaph.

  1 My voice [rises] to God, and I will acry aloud;
  My voice [rises] to God, and He will hear me.
  2 In the aday of my trouble I sought the Lord;
  bIn the night my chand was stretched out Iwithout weariness;
  My soul drefused to be comforted.
  3 [When] I remember God, then I am adisturbed;
  [When] I bsigh, then cmy spirit grows faint.
      ISelah.
  4 You have held my eyelids [open];
  I am so troubled that I acannot speak.
  5 I have considered the adays of old,
  The years of long ago.
  6 I will remember my asong in the night;
  I bwill meditate with my heart,
  And my spirit Iponders:

The psalmist sheweth what fierce combat he had with diffidence.

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 the Lord: my sore ran in the night, and ceased not: my soul refused to be comforted. 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 I have considered the days of old, the years of ancient times. 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 Lord cast off for ever? and will he be favourable no more? 8 Is his mercy clean gone for ever? doth [his] promise fail for evermore? 9 Hath God forgotten to be gracious? hath he in anger shut up his tender mercies? Selah.

The victory which he had by consideration of God's great and gracious works.

10 And I said, This [is] my infirmity: [but I will remember] the years of the right hand of the most High. 11 I will remember the works of the LORD: surely I will remember thy wonders of old. 12 I will meditate also of all thy work, and talk of thy doings. 13 Thy way, O God, [is] in the sanctuary: who [is so] great a God as [our] God? 14 Thou [art] the God that doest wonders: thou hast declared thy strength among the people. 15 Thou hast with [thine] arm redeemed thy people, the sons of Jacob and Joseph. 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 voice of thy thunder [was] in the heaven: the lightnings lightened the world: the earth trembled and shook. 19 Thy way [is] in the sea, and thy path in the great waters, and thy footsteps are not known. 20 Thou leddest thy people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron.
