O Lord, I have heard bthy speech, and cwas afraid:

O Lord, ||drevive ethy work in the midst of the years,

In the midst of the years make known;

fIn wrath remember mercy.

God came from ||gTeman,

And hthe Holy One from mount Paran. Selah.

His glory covered the heavens,

And the earth was full of his praise.

And ihis brightness was as the light;

He had ||horns coming out of his hand:

And jthere was the hiding of his power.

kBefore him went the pestilence,

And ||klburning coals went forth mat his feet.

He stood, and measured the earth:

He beheld, and ndrove asunder the nations;

And othe everlasting pmountains were scattered,

The perpetual phills did bow:

His ways are everlasting.

I saw the tents of ||qCushan ||in raffliction:

And the curtains of the land of tMidian did tremble.

uWas the Lord displeased against vthe rivers?

Was thine anger against vthe rivers?

uWas thy wrath against the sea,

That wthou didst ride upon thine horses and ||thy chariots of salvation?

xThy bow was made quite naked,

yAccording to the oaths of the tribes, even thy word. Selah.

||zThou didst cleave the earth with vrivers.

10  aThe mountains bsaw thee, and bthey trembled:

The overflowing of the water passed by:

cThe deep uttered his voice,

And dlifted up his hands on high.

11  eThe sun and moon stood still in ftheir habitation:

||At the light of gthine arrows they went,

And at ithe shining of thy glittering spear.

12  jThou didst march through the land in indignation,

Thou didst kthresh the heathen in anger.

13  jThou wentest forth for the salvation of thy people,

Even for salvation with lthine anointed;

mThou woundedst the head out of the house of the wicked,

nBy discovering the foundation unto othe neck. Selah.

14  Thou didst strike through with his staves the head of phis villages:

qThey came out as a whirlwind rto scatter me:

Their rejoicing was as to devour the poor ssecretly.

15  tThou didst walk through the sea uwith thine horses,

Through the ||heap of great waters.

16  vWhen I heard, wmy belly trembled;

My lips quivered at the voice:

xRottenness entered into my bones, and I trembled in myself,

That yI might rest in the day of trouble:

When he cometh up unto the people, zhe will ||invade them with his troops.

17  Although the fig tree shall not blossom,

Neither shall fruit be in the vines;

The labour of the olive shall zzfail,

And the fields shall yield no meat;

The flock shall be acut off from bthe fold,

And there shall be no herd in the stalls:

18  cYet I will rejoice in the Lord,

dI will joy in the God of my salvation.
