Awake to help me, and take notice. p
5 Lord God of * Hosts, You are the God of Israel,
rise up to punish all the nations;
and prowling around the city. r

You ridicule all the nations. v
9 I will keep watch for You, my w strength,
because God is my stronghold. x
10 My faithful God y will come to meet me;
God will let me look down on my adversaries. z
By Your power, make them homeless wanderers a
and bring them down,
Lord, our shield. b
let them be caught in their pride.
They utter curses and lies. c
consume them until they are gone. d
Then people will know throughout e the earth
that God rules over Jacob. f Selah
and prowling around the city. g
they growl if they are not satisfied. h
and will joyfully proclaim
Your faithful love in the morning. i
For You have been a stronghold for me,
a refuge in my day of trouble. j
because God is my stronghold—
my faithful God. k
About The Holman Christian Standard Bible
The complete Holman Christian Standard Bible® is now available for the first time ever! More than fifteen years in the making, crafted by the shared expertise of nearly a hundred conservative scholars and English stylists, the Holman CSB® sets the standard in painstaking biblical accuracy and pure literary form.
Accurate, yet highly readable, it's a translation committed to leaving both the grace and gravity of the original languages intact while carefully creating a smooth flow of wording for the reader.
Stylistically, this inaugural edition contributes to the clarity of the written Word, arranging the poetic portions of the Scripture into complete lines of thought, and revering God's presence on each page by capitalizing all the pronouns that refer to Him.
