The Book of Psalms
1 – Unto the end, for Idithun, a psalm of Asaph.
2 – I cried to the Lord with my voice; to God with my voice, and he gave ear to me.
3 – In the day of my trouble I sought God, with my hands lifted up to him in the night, and I was not deceived. My soul refused to be comforted:
4 – I remembered God, and was delighted, and was exercised, and my spirit swooned away.
5 – My eyes prevented the watches: I was troubled, and I spoke not.
6 – I thought upon the days of old: and I had in my mind the eternal years.
7 – And I meditated in the night with my own heart: and I was exercised and I swept my spirit.
8 – Will God then cast off for ever? or will he never be more favourable again?
9 – Or will he cut off his mercy for ever, from generation to generation?
10 – Or will God forget to shew mercy? or will he in his anger shut up his mercies?
11 – And I said, Now have I begun: this is the change of the right hand of the most High.
12 – I remembered the works of the Lord: for I will be mindful of thy wonders from the beginning.
13 – And I will meditate on all thy works: and will be employed in thy inventions.
14 – Thy way, O God, is in the holy place: who is the great God like our God?
15 – Thou art the God that dost wonders. Thou hast made thy power known among the nations:
16 – with thy arm thou hast redeemed thy people the children of Jacob and of Joseph.
17 – The waters saw thee, O God, the waters saw thee: and they were afraid, and the depths were troubled.
18 – Great was the noise of the waters: the clouds sent out a sound. For thy arrows pass:
19 – the voice of thy thunder in a wheel. Thy lightnings enlightened the world: the earth shook and trembled.
20 – Thy way is in the sea, and thy paths in many waters: and thy footsteps shall not be known.
21 – Thou hast conducted thy people like sheep, by the hand of Moses and Aaron
