Confidence in God during National Distress

1For the leader; ‘al Jeduthun. A psalm of Asaph.

I

2I cry aloud to God, cry to God to hear me. 3On the day of my distress I seek the Lord; by night my hands are raised unceasingly; m Pss 50, 15; 88, 2 . I refuse to be consoled. 4When I think of God, I groan; as I ponder, my spirit grows faint. n Jon 2, 8 .   Selah 5My eyes cannot close in sleep; I am troubled and cannot speak. 6I consider the days of old; the years long past 7I remember. o Ps 143, 5; Dt 32, 7 . In the night I meditate in my heart; I ponder and my spirit broods: 8“Will the Lord reject us forever, p 77, 8–10: Pss 13, 2; 44, 24; 74, 1; 80, 5; 89, 47; LAm 3, 31 . never again show favor? 9Has God's love ceased forever? Has the promise failed for all ages? 10Has God forgotten mercy, in anger withheld compassion?”   Selah 11I conclude:* “My sorrow is this, the right hand of the Most High has left us.” q Ex 15, 6. 12; Pss 17, 7; 18, 36 .
