Ps. 73, 77, 78

Psalm 73 uses a some complex tenses.  If I had spoken that way, my body and spirit may fail.  I notice this as I read in Spanish, of course.  But the author writes from a time of trial and speaks hopefully of when God will turn things around for him or her and bring vengeance against wicked (aka the enemies).

Psalm 77 also addresses yearning for God's intervention and noting God's power, using weather as the key metaphor.

The Psalm 78 is a monster recounting the history of the Hebrews from the exodus, flash back to the plagues, then finishing up with praise for David.

All three of these are attributed to Asaph, who appears to have been a musician in David's court.
