1 aDeliver me from my enemies, O my God;
2 Deliver me from athose who do iniquity
And save me from bmen of bloodshed.
bNot for my transgression nor for my sin, O Lord,
5 You, aO Lord God of hosts, the God of Israel,
cDo not be gracious to any who are treacherous in iniquity.
And go around the city.
7 Behold, they abelch forth with their mouth;
bSwords are in their lips,
For, they say, “cWho hears?”
8 But You, O Lord, alaugh at them;
You bscoff at all the nations.
For God is my bstronghold.
11 Do not slay them, aor my people will forget;
O Lord, cour shield.
Let them even be bcaught in their pride,
To the ends of the earth.
14 They areturn at evening, they howl like a dog,
And go around the city.
And 2growl if they are not satisfied.
16 But as for me, I shall asing of Your strength;
For You have been my dstronghold
And a erefuge in the day of my distress.
17 aO my strength, I will sing praises to You;
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 Formalized language and outdated words and phrases have been replaced with their contemporary counterparts.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.
