Praise to the Lord, and Warning against Unbelief.
1 O come, let us asing for joy to the Lord,
Let us shout joyfully to bthe rock of our salvation.
2 Let us acome before His presence bwith 1thanksgiving,
Let us shout joyfully to Him cwith 2psalms.
3 For the Lord is a agreat God
And a great King babove all gods,
4 In whose hand are the adepths of the earth,
The peaks of the mountains are His also.
5 1The sea is His, for it was He awho made it,
And His hands formed the dry land.
6 Come, let us aworship and bow down,
Let us bkneel before the Lord our cMaker.
And awe are the people of His 1bpasture and the sheep of His hand.
cToday, 2if you would hear His voice,
8 Do not harden your hearts, as at 1aMeribah,
As in the day of 2bMassah in the wilderness,
9 “When your fathers atested Me,
They tried Me, though they had seen My work.
10 “For aforty years I loathed that generation,
And said they are a people who err in their heart,
And they do not know My ways.
11 “Therefore I aswore in My anger,
Truly they shall not enter into My brest.”
About New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update
The New American Standard Bible, long considered a favorite study Bible by serious students of the Scriptures, has been completely revised and updated in this new 1995 translation. Preserving the Lockman Foundation's standard of creating a literal translation of the original Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic manuscripts, the 1995 NASB provides a literal translation that is very readable. Formalized language and outdated words and phrases have been replaced with their contemporary counterparts. In short, the 1995 NASB is a Bible translation that is very conducive to word-by-word study and is also able to be read (and understood) by the whole family.
