Psalm 77


For the choir director: according to Jeduthun. Of Asaph.r A psalm.

I cry aloud to God,

aloud to God, and he will hear me.s

I sought the Lord in my day of trouble.

My hands were continually lifted up

all night long;

I refused to be comforted.t

I think of God; I groan;

I meditate; my spirit becomes weak.u


You have kept me from closing my eyes;

I am troubled and cannot speak.v

I consider days of old,

years long past.w

At night I remember my music;

I meditate in my heart, and my spirit ponders.x

“Will the Lord reject forever

and never again show favor?y

Has his faithful love ceased forever?

Is his promise at an end for all generations?z

Has God forgotten to be gracious?

Has he in anger withheld his compassion?”aa


10 So I say, “I am grieved

that the right hand of the Most High has changed.”B,ab

11 I will remember the Lord’s works;

yes, I will remember your ancient wonders.ac

12 I will reflect on all you have done

and meditate on your actions.ad

13 God, your way is holy.

What god is great like God?ae

14 You are the God who works wonders;

you revealed your strength among the peoples.af

15 With power you redeemed your people,

the descendants of Jacob and Joseph.ag


16 The water saw you, God.

The water saw you; it trembled.

Even the depths shook.ah

17 The clouds poured down water.

The storm clouds thundered;

your arrows flashed back and forth.a

18 The sound of your thunder was in the whirlwind;

lightning lit up the world.b

The earth shook and quaked.c

19 Your way went through the sea

and your path through the vast water,

but your footprints were unseen.d

20 You led your people like a flocke

by the hand of Moses and Aaron.f


About Christian Standard Bible

The Christian Standard Bible (CSB) is a highly trustworthy, faithful translation that is proven to be the optimal blend of accuracy and readability. It’s as literal to the original as possible without sacrificing clarity. The CSB is poised to become the translation that pastors rely on and Bible readers turn to again and again to read and to share with others.

The CSB is an original translation: more than 100 scholars from 17 denominations translated directly from the best available Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic source texts into English. Its source texts are the standard used by scholars and seminaries today.

The CSB is trustworthy: the conservative, evangelical scholars of the CSB affirm the authority of Scripture as the inerrant Word of God and seek the highest level of faithfulness to the original and accuracy in their translation. These scholars and LifeWay, the non-profit ministry that stewards the CSB, also champion the Bible against cultural trends that would compromise its truths.

The CSB is clear: it is as literal a translation of the ancient source texts as possible, but, in the many places throughout Scripture where a word-for-word rendering might obscure the meaning for a modern audience, it uses a more dynamic translation. In all cases, the intent is to convey the original meaning of God’s Word as faithfully and as clearly as possible.
