I will recount all of your gwonderful deeds.
2 I will be glad and hexult in you;
they stumble and perish before3 your presence.
4 For you have kmaintained my just cause;
you have lsat on the throne, giving righteous judgment.
5 You have mrebuked the nations; you have made the wicked perish;
you have nblotted out their name forever and ever.
their cities you rooted out;
the very memory of them has perished.
he has established his throne for justice,
8 and he ojudges the world with righteousness;
he pjudges the peoples with uprightness.
a stronghold in stimes of trouble.
10 And those who tknow your name put their trust in you,
for you, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek you.
11 Sing praises to the Lord, who usits enthroned in Zion!
Tell among the peoples his vdeeds!
12 For he who wavenges blood is mindful of them;
he xdoes not forget the cry of the afflicted.
13 yBe gracious to me, O Lord!
See my affliction from those who hate me,
O you who lift me up from zthe gates of death,
that in the gates of athe daughter of Zion
I may brejoice in your salvation.
15 The nations have sunk in cthe pit that they made;
in dthe net that they hid, their own foot has been caught.
16 The Lord has made himself eknown; he has executed judgment;
the wicked are snared in the work of their own hands. Higgaion.4 Selah
17 The wicked shall freturn to Sheol,
all the nations that gforget God.
and hthe hope of the poor shall not perish forever.
let the nations be judged before you!
Let the nations know that they are but jmen! Selah
About English Standard Version
The English Standard Version™ is founded on the conviction that the words of the Bible are the very words of God. And because the words themselves—not just the thoughts or ideas—are inspired by God, each word must be translated with the greatest precision and accuracy. As Jesus Himself stressed, “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God” (Matt. 4:4).
This passion for God’s Word is the driving force behind the translation of the ESV™ Bible. The English Standard Version™ does not try to “improve” on the original in light of today’s culture or by using trendy language. Instead, the utmost care has been taken to express God’s Word in English that most closely captures the meaning of the original, with understandability, beauty, and impact.
