For the choir director. A Psalm of David.
1 O Lord, in Your strength the king will abe glad,
And in Your 1salvation how greatly he will rejoice!
2 You have agiven him his heart’s desire,
And You have not withheld the request of his lips.
3 For You ameet him with the blessings of good things;
You set a bcrown of fine gold on his head.
You agave it to him,
bLength of days forever and ever.
bSplendor and majesty You place upon him.
You make him joyful bwith gladness in Your presence.
7 For the king atrusts in the Lord,
And through the lovingkindness of the Most High bhe will not be shaken.
8 Your hand will afind out all your enemies;
Your right hand will find out those who hate you.
The Lord will bswallow them up in His wrath,
And cfire will devour them.
10 Their 1offspring You will destroy from the earth,
And bdevised a plot,
They will not succeed.
12 For You will amake them turn their back;
We will asing and praise Your power.
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 Formalized language and outdated words and phrases have been replaced with their contemporary counterparts.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.
