1 Oh come, let us sing to the Lord!
Let us shout joyfully to the Rock of our salvation.
Let us shout joyfully to Him with apsalms.
3 For bthe Lord is the great God,
And the great King above all gods.
4 1In His hand are the deep places of the earth;
The heights of the hills are His also.
5 cThe sea is His, for He made it;
And His hands formed the dry land.
Let dus kneel before the Lord our Maker.
And ewe are the people of His pasture,
And the sheep 2of His hand.
fToday, if you will hear His voice:
8 “Do not harden your hearts, as in the 3rebellion,
9 When hyour fathers tested Me;
They tried Me, though they isaw My work.
And said, ‘It is a people who go astray in their hearts,
And they do not know My ways.’
11 So kI swore in My wrath,
‘They shall not enter My rest.’ ”
About The New King James Version
The New King James Version is a total update of the 1611 King James Version, also known as the "Authorized Version." Every attempt has been made to maintain the beauty of the original version while updating the English grammar to contemporary style and usage. The result is much better "readability." It is noteworthy that the NKJV is one of the few modern translations still based on the "Western" or "Byzantine" manuscript tradition. This makes the New King James Version an invaluable aid to comparative English Bible study.
