To the Chief Musician. aTo Jeduthun. A Psalm of Asaph.
And He gave ear to me.
My hand was stretched out in the night without ceasing;
My soul refused to be comforted.
I complained, and my spirit was overwhelmed.
I am so troubled that I cannot speak.
The years of ancient times.
I meditate within my heart,
And my spirit 1makes diligent search.
And will He be favorable no more?
Has He in anger shut up His tender mercies?
10 And I said, “This is my 3anguish;
But I will remember the years of the right hand of the Most High.”
Surely I will remember Your wonders of old.
And talk of Your deeds.
Who is so great a God as our God?
You have declared Your strength among the peoples.
The sons of Jacob and Joseph.
The waters saw You, they were dafraid;
The depths also trembled.
The skies sent out a sound;
Your arrows also flashed about.
The lightnings lit up the world;
The earth trembled and shook.
Your path in the great waters,
And Your footsteps were not known.
By the hand of Moses and Aaron.
About The New King James Version
The New King James Version is a total update of the 1611 King James Version, also known as the "Authorized Version." Every attempt has been made to maintain the beauty of the original version while updating the English grammar to contemporary style and usage. The result is much better "readability." It is noteworthy that the NKJV is one of the few modern translations still based on the "Western" or "Byzantine" manuscript tradition. This makes the New King James Version an invaluable aid to comparative English Bible study.
