Psalm 77

Psalm 77

For the director of music. For Jeduthun. A psalm of Asaph.

I cried out to God for help.
    I cried out to God to hear me.
When I was in trouble, I looked to the Lord for help.
    During the night I lifted up my hands in prayer.
    But I refused to be comforted.

God, I remembered you, and I groaned.
    I thought about you, and I became weak.
You kept me from going to sleep.
    I was so troubled I couldn’t speak.
I thought about days gone by.
    I thought about the years of long ago.
I remembered how I used to sing praise to you in the night.
    I thought about it, and here is what I asked myself.

“Will the Lord turn away from us forever?
    Won’t he ever show us his kindness again?
Has his faithful love disappeared forever?
    Has his promise failed for all time?
Has God forgotten to help us?
    Has he held back his tender love because he was angry?”

10 Then I thought, “Here is what gives me hope.
    For many years the Most High God showed how powerful he is.
11 Lord, I will remember what you did.
    Yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago.
12 I will spend time thinking about everything you have done.
    I will consider all your mighty acts.”

13 God, everything you do is holy.
    What god is as great as our God?
14 You are the God who does miracles.
    You show your power among the nations.
15 With your mighty arm you set your people free.
    You set the children of Jacob and Joseph free.

16 God, the water of the Red Sea saw you.
    It saw you and boiled up.
    The deepest waters were stirred up.
17 The clouds poured down rain.
    The skies rumbled with thunder.
    Lightning flashed back and forth like arrows.
18 Your thunder was heard in the windstorm.
    Your lightning lit up the world.
    The earth trembled and shook.
19 Your path led through the Red Sea.
    You walked through the mighty waters.
    But your footprints were not seen.

20 You led your people like a flock.
    You led them by the hands of Moses and Aaron.

诗篇 77

患难中的安慰

亚萨的诗,照耶杜顿的做法,交给乐长。

1我呼求上帝,我高声呼求,
上帝垂听我的祷告。
我在困境中寻求主。
我整夜举手祷告,
我的心无法得到安慰。
我思想上帝,发出哀叹;
我默想,心灵疲惫不堪。(细拉)
你使我无法合眼,
我心乱如麻,默然无语。
我回想从前的日子,
那久远的岁月,
想起自己夜间所唱的歌。
我沉思默想,扪心自问:
“难道主要永远丢弃我,
不再恩待我了吗?
难道祂的慈爱永远消逝了吗?
祂的应许永远落空了吗?
难道上帝已忘记施恩,
在愤怒中收回了祂的慈爱吗?”(细拉)
10 于是我说:“我感到悲伤的是,
至高者已不再彰显大能。”
11 耶和华啊,我要回想你的作为,
回想你从前所行的奇事。
12 我要默想你所行的一切事,
思想你一切大能的作为。
13 上帝啊,你的作为全然圣洁,
有哪个神明像你一样伟大?
14 你是行奇事的上帝,
你在列邦中彰显你的大能。
15 你以大能救赎了你的子民,
就是雅各和约瑟的后代。(细拉)

16 上帝啊,海水看见你就战栗,

深渊看见你就颤抖。
17 云层倒出雨水,
天上雷霆霹雳,电光四射。
18 旋风中传来你的雷声,
你的闪电照亮世界,
大地颤抖震动。
19 你的道路穿越海洋,经过洪涛,
但你的足迹无人看见。
20 你借着摩西和亚伦的手引领你的子民,
如同牧人引领羊群。
