JPS Tanakh 1917
1For the Leader; for Jeduthun. A Psalm of Asaph.
2I will lift up my voice unto God, an cry;
I will lift up my voice unto God, that He may give ear unto me.
3In the day of my trouble I seek the Lord;
With my hand uplifted, [mine eye] streameth in the night without ceasing;
My soul refuseth to be comforted.
4When I think thereon, O God, I must moan;
When I muse thereon, my spirit fainteth.
5Thou holdest fast the lids of mine eyes;
I am troubled, and cannot speak.
6I have pondered the days of old,
the years of ancient times.
7In the night I will call to remembrance my song;
I will commune with mine own heart;
And my spirit maketh diligent search
8‘Will the Lord cast off for ever?
And will He be favourable no more?
9Is His mercy clean gone for ever?
Is His promise come to an end for evermore?
10Hath God forgotten to be gracious?
Hath He in anger shut up his compassions?’
11And I say ‘This is my weakness,
That the right hand of the Most High could change.
12I will make mention of the deeds of the LORD;
Yea, I will remember Thy wonders of old.
13I will meditate also upon all Thy work,
And muse on Thy doings.’
14O God, Thy way is in holiness;
Who is a great god like unto God?
15Thou art the God that doest wonders;
Thou hast made known Thy strength among the peoples.
16Thou hast with Thine arm redeemed Thy people,
The sons of Jacob and Joseph.
17The waters saw Thee, O God;
The waters saw Thee, they were in pain;
The depths also trembled.
18The clouds flooded forth waters;
The skies sent out a sound;
Thine arrows also went abroad.
19The voice of Thy thunder was in the whirlwind;
The lightnings lighted up the world;
The earth trembled and shook.
20Thy way was in the sea,
And Thy path in the great waters,
And Thy footsteps were not known.
21Thou didst lead Thy people like a flock,
By the hand of Moses and Aaron.
