2 aClouds and thick darkness surround Him;
bRighteousness and justice are the foundation of His throne.
3 aFire goes before Him
And bburns up His adversaries round about.
4 His alightnings lit up the world;
The earth saw and btrembled.
5 The mountains amelted like wax at the presence of the Lord,
At the presence of the bLord of the whole earth.
6 The aheavens declare His righteousness,
And ball the peoples have seen His glory.
7 Let all those be ashamed who serve agraven images,
Who boast themselves of bidols;
And the daughters of Judah have rejoiced
Because of Your judgments, O Lord.
9 For You are the Lord aMost High over all the earth;
10 aHate evil, you who love the Lord,
Who bpreserves the souls of His godly ones;
He cdelivers them from the hand of the wicked.
11 aLight is sown like seed for the righteous
And bgladness for the upright in heart.
12 Be aglad in the Lord, you righteous ones,
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 Formalized language and outdated words and phrases have been replaced with their contemporary counterparts.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.
