God Praised and Supplicated to Give Victory.

A Song, a Psalm of David.

1 aMy heart is steadfast, O God;

I will sing, I will sing praises, even with my 1soul.

2 Awake, harp and lyre;

I will awaken the dawn!

3 I will give thanks to You, O Lord, among the peoples,

And I will sing praises to You among the nations.

4 For Your alovingkindness is great babove the heavens,

And Your truth reaches to the skies.

5 aBe exalted, O God, above the heavens,

And Your glory above all the earth.

6 aThat Your beloved may be delivered,

Save with Your right hand, and answer me!

7 God has spoken in His 1holiness:

“I will exult, I will portion out Shechem

And measure out the valley of Succoth.

8 “Gilead is Mine, Manasseh is Mine;

Ephraim also is the 1helmet of My head;

aJudah is My 2scepter.

9 “Moab is My washbowl;

Over Edom I shall throw My shoe;

Over Philistia I will shout aloud.”

10 aWho will bring me into the besieged city?

Who 1will lead me to Edom?

11 Have not You Yourself, O God, arejected us?

And will You not go forth with our armies, O God?

12 Oh give us help against the adversary,

For adeliverance 1by man is in vain.

13 1Through God we will do valiantly,

And ait is He who shall tread down our adversaries.


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 Formalized language and outdated words and phrases have been replaced with their contemporary counterparts.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