Why does it have strange spelling?
1 The Psalmist sheweth what fierce combate hee had with diffidence. 10 The victory which he had by consideration of Gods great and gratious workes.
I cryed vnto God with my voice: euen vnto God with my voice, and he gaue eare vnto me.
In the day of my trouble, I sought the Lord; my sore ranne in the night, and ceased not: my soule refused to be comforted.2
I remembred God, and was troubled: I complained, and my spirit was ouerwhelmed. Selah.
Thou holdest mine eyes waking: I am so troubled that I cannot speake.
I haue considered the dayes of old, the yeeres of auncient times.
I call to remembrance my song in the night: I commune with mine owne heart, and my spirit made diligent search.
Will the Lord cast off for euer? and will hee be fauourable no more?
Is his mercy cleane gone for euer? doth his promise faile for euermore?8
Hath God forgotten to be gracious? hath he in anger shut vp his tender mercies? Selah.
And I sayd, This is my infirmitie: but I will remember the yeeres of the right hand of the most high.
I will remember the workes of the Lord: surely I will remember thy wonders of old.
I will meditate also of all thy worke, and talke of thy doings.
Thy way, O God, is in the Sanctuarie: who is so great a God, as our God?
Thou art the God that doest wonders; thou hast declared thy strength among the people.
Thou hast with thine arme redeemed thy people, the sonnes of Iacob and Ioseph. Selah.
The waters saw thee, O God, the waters saw thee: they were afraid; the depths also were troubled.
The cloudes powred out water, the skies sent out a sound; thine arrowes also went abroad.17
The voice of thy thunder was in the heauen: the lightnings lightned the world, the earth trembled and shooke.
Thy way is in the sea, and thy path in the great waters: and thy foot-steps are not knowen.
Thou leddest thy people like a flock, by the hand of Moses and Aaron.20
