2When I was in distress, I sought the Lord; at night I stretched out untiring hands, and I would not be comforted.2In 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.2In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord; In the night my hand was stretched out without weariness; My soul refused to be comforted.2In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord: my sore ran in the night, and ceased not: my soul refused to be comforted.2I sought the Lord in my day of trouble. My hands were continually lifted up all night long; I refused to be comforted.
3I remembered you, God, and I groaned; I meditated, and my spirit grew faint.3When I remember God, I moan; when I meditate, my spirit faints.

6I remembered my songs in the night. My heart meditated and my spirit asked:6I said, “Let me remember my song in the night; let me meditate in my heart.” Then my spirit made a diligent search:6I will remember my song in the night; I will meditate with my heart, And my spirit ponders:6I call to remembrance my song in the night: I commune with mine own heart: and my spirit made diligent search.6At night I remember my music; I meditate in my heart, and my spirit ponders."
