1. For the Leader, on yedutun, by Asaf, a song. 2. My voice is to God (Elohim), when I cry out; my voice is to God (Elohim), that He give ear to me. 3. On the day of my distress, I sought Adonai; my wound oozes at night and does not abate; my soul refuses to be comforted. 4. I remember Elohim and I moan; I speak and my spirit becomes faint, Selah. 5. You held my eyes from [getting any sleep]; I am stricken and unable to speak. 6. I think of days of yore, ancient years. 7. I recall my music at night; with my heart I speak and my spirit searches. 8. "Will Adonai forsake [me] forever and nevermore be appeased? 9. Is His kindness ended forever? [Has He] finished saying [words of consolation] for all generations? 10. Has [the Merciful] God forgotten graciousness? Has He, in anger, shut off His mercy?” Selah. 11. And I said, "This is to infirm me, this change of the right hand of the Most High." 12. I recall the deeds of Yah when I remember Your wonder from time immemorial. 13. And I meditate over all Your work, and of Your deeds I speak. 14. Elohim, Your way is in sanctifying [Your Name by judging the wicked]. Who is a great god as Elohim? 15. You are the God Who works wonders; You made known Your might among the peoples. 16. You redeemed Your people with [Your] arm, the sons of Yaacov and Yosef, Selah. 17. The waters saw You, Elohim, the waters perceived You, they trembled, the deeps even quaked. 18. They poured forth thick waters; the skies let out a voice [of thunder], even your arrows [of lightning] went abroad. 19. The sound of Your thunder [rebuked] the wheel[s of Pharao’s chariots]; the lightning illuminated the world; the earth trembled and roared. 20. In the sea [was] Your way, and Your path in mighty waters; and [afterwards], Your steps were not known [when the sea returned to its strength to cover the Egyptians]. 21. You led Your people like sheep by the hand of Moshe and Aharon.
