Prayer for Mercy in Time of Trouble.
For the choir director; with stringed instruments, †upon an eight-string lyre. A Psalm of David.
1 O Lord, ado not rebuke me in Your anger,
Nor chasten me in Your wrath.
2 Be gracious to me, O Lord, for I am apining away;
bHeal me, O Lord, for cmy bones are dismayed.
3 And my asoul is greatly dismayed;
But You, O Lord—bhow long?
4 Return, O Lord, arescue my 1soul;
Save me because of Your lovingkindness.
5 For athere is no 1mention of You in death;
In 2Sheol who will give You thanks?
6 I am aweary with my sighing;
Every night I make my bed swim,
I dissolve my couch with bmy tears.
7 My aeye has wasted away with grief;
It has become old because of all my adversaries.
8 aDepart from me, all you who do iniquity,
For the Lord bhas heard the voice of my weeping.
9 The Lord ahas heard my supplication,
The Lord breceives my prayer.
10 All my enemies will abe ashamed and greatly dismayed;
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 Formalized language and outdated words and phrases have been replaced with their contemporary counterparts.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.
