Psalm 77

PSALM 77

To the choirmaster: according to Jeduthun. A Psalm of Asaph.

I cry aloud to God,

aloud to God, that he may hear me.

In 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.

I think of God, and I moan;

I meditate, and my spirit faints. [Selah]

Thou dost hold my eyelids from closing;

I am so troubled that I cannot speak.

I consider the days of old,

I remember the years long ago.

I commune with my heart in the night;

I meditate and search my spirit:

“Will the Lord spurn for ever,

and never again be favorable?

Has his steadfast love for ever ceased?

Are his promises at an end for all time?

Has God forgotten to be gracious?

Has he in anger shut up his compassion?” [Selah]

10 And I say, “It is my grief

that the right hand of the Most High has changed.”

11 I will call to mind the deeds of the Lord;

yea, I will remember thy wonders of old.

12 I will meditate on all thy work,

and muse on thy mighty deeds.

13 Thy way, O God, is holy.

What god is great like our God?

14 Thou art the God who workest wonders,

who hast manifested thy might among the peoples.

15 Thou didst with thy arm redeem thy people,

the sons of Jacob and Joseph. [Selah]

16 When the waters saw thee, O God,

when the waters saw thee, they were afraid,

yea, the deep trembled.

17 The clouds poured out water;

the skies gave forth thunder;

thy arrows flashed on every side.

18 The crash of thy thunder was in the whirlwind;

thy lightnings lighted up the world;

the earth trembled and shook.

19 Thy way was through the sea,

thy path through the great waters;

yet thy footprints were unseen.

20 Thou didst lead thy people like a flock

by the hand of Moses and Aaron.

Psalm 24–25

PSALM 24

A Psalm of David.

The earth is the Lord’s and the fulness thereof,

the world and those who dwell therein;

for he has founded it upon the seas,

and established it upon the rivers.

Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord?

And who shall stand in his holy place?

He who has clean hands and a pure heart,

who does not lift up his soul to what is false,

and does not swear deceitfully.

He will receive blessing from the Lord,

and vindication from the God of his salvation.

Such is the generation of those who seek him,

who seek the face of the God of Jacob. [Selah]

Lift up your heads, O gates!

and be lifted up, O ancient doors!

that the King of glory may come in.

Who is the King of glory?

The Lord, strong and mighty,

the Lord, mighty in battle!

Lift up your heads, O gates!

and be lifted up, O ancient doors!

that the King of glory may come in.

10 Who is this King of glory?

The Lord of hosts,

he is the King of glory! [Selah]

PSALM 25

A Psalm of David.

To thee, O Lord, I lift up my soul. O my God, in thee I trust,

let me not be put to shame;

let not my enemies exult over me.

Yea, let none that wait for thee be put to shame;

let them be ashamed who are wantonly treacherous.

Make me to know thy ways, O Lord;

teach me thy paths.

Lead me in thy truth, and teach me,

for thou art the God of my salvation;

for thee I wait all the day long.

Be mindful of thy mercy, O Lord, and of thy steadfast love,

for they have been from of old.

Remember not the sins of my youth, or my transgressions;

according to thy steadfast love remember me,

for thy goodness’ sake, O Lord!

Good and upright is the Lord;

therefore he instructs sinners in the way.

He leads the humble in what is right,

and teaches the humble his way.

10 All the paths of the Lord are steadfast love and faithfulness,

for those who keep his covenant and his testimonies.

11 For thy name’s sake, O Lord,

pardon my guilt, for it is great.

12 Who is the man that fears the Lord?

Him will he instruct in the way that he should choose.

13 He himself shall abide in prosperity,

and his children shall possess the land.

14 The friendship of the Lord is for those who fear him,

and he makes known to them his covenant.

15 My eyes are ever toward the Lord,

for he will pluck my feet out of the net.

16 Turn thou to me, and be gracious to me;

for I am lonely and afflicted.

17 Relieve the troubles of my heart,

and bring me out of my distresses.

18 Consider my affliction and my trouble,

and forgive all my sins.

19 Consider how many are my foes,

and with what violent hatred they hate me.

20 Oh guard my life, and deliver me;

let me not be put to shame, for I take refuge in thee.

21 May integrity and uprightness preserve me,

for I wait for thee.

22 Redeem Israel, O God,

out of all his troubles.
