Prayer for Deliverance and Guidance.

A Psalm of David.

1 Hear my prayer, O Lord,

aGive ear to my supplications!

Answer me in Your bfaithfulness, in Your crighteousness!

2 And ado not enter into judgment with Your servant,

For in Your sight bno man living is righteous.

3 For the enemy has persecuted my soul;

He has crushed my life ato the ground;

He bhas made me dwell in dark places, like those who have long been dead.

4 Therefore amy spirit 1is overwhelmed within me;

My heart is 2bappalled within me.

5 I aremember the days of old;

I bmeditate on all Your doings;

I cmuse on the work of Your hands.

6 I astretch out my hands to You;

My bsoul longs for You, as a 1parched land.


7 aAnswer me quickly, O Lord, my bspirit fails;

cDo not hide Your face from me,

Or I will become like dthose who go down to the pit.

8 Let me hear Your alovingkindness bin the morning;

For I trust cin You;

Teach me the dway in which I should walk;

For to You I elift up my soul.

9 aDeliver me, O Lord, from my enemies;

1I take refuge in You.

10 aTeach me to do Your will,

For You are my God;

Let bYour good Spirit clead me on level 1ground.

11 aFor the sake of Your name, O Lord, brevive me.

cIn Your righteousness bring my soul out of trouble.

12 And in Your lovingkindness, 1acut off my enemies

And bdestroy all those who afflict my soul,

For cI am Your servant.


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 Formalized language and outdated words and phrases have been replaced with their contemporary counterparts.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.
