1 aIn You, O Lord, I have taken refuge;
Let me never be ashamed.
2 aIn Your righteousness deliver me and rescue me;
bIncline Your ear to me and save me.
You have given ccommandment to save me,
4 aRescue me, O my God, out of the hand of the wicked,
Out of the 1grasp of the wrongdoer and ruthless man,
5 For You are my ahope;
You are He who btook me from my mother’s womb;
7 I have become a amarvel to many,
For You are bmy strong refuge.
8 My amouth is filled with Your praise
And with bYour glory all day long.
9 Do not cast me off in the atime of old age;
Do not forsake me when my strength fails.
10 For my enemies have spoken 1against me;
11 Saying, “aGod has forsaken him;
Pursue and seize him, for there is bno one to deliver.”
12 O God, ado not be far from me;
O my God, bhasten to my help!
13 Let those who are adversaries of my soul be aashamed and consumed;
14 But as for me, I will ahope continually,
15 My amouth shall tell of Your righteousness
And of bYour salvation all day long;
I will bmake mention of Your righteousness, Yours alone.
17 O God, You ahave taught me from my youth,
And I still bdeclare Your wondrous deeds.
18 And even when I am aold and gray, O God, do not forsake me,
Your power to all who are to come.
You who have bdone great things;
O God, cwho is like You?
21 May You increase my agreatness
And turn to bcomfort me.
Even Your 2truth, O my God;
To You I will sing praises with the blyre,
O cHoly One of Israel.
23 My lips will ashout for joy when I sing praises to You;
And my bsoul, which You have redeemed.
24 My atongue also will utter Your righteousness all day long;
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 Formalized language and outdated words and phrases have been replaced with their contemporary counterparts.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.
