ASV 1 I love thee, O Jehovah, my strength. NIV 1 I love you, O LORD, my strength. ASV 2 Jehovah is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; My God, my rock, in whom I will take refuge; My shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower. NIV 2 The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge. He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. ASV 3 I will call upon Jehovah, who is worthy to be praised: So shall I be saved from mine enemies. NIV 3 I call to the LORD, who is worthy of praise, and I am saved from my enemies. ASV 4 The cords of death compassed me, And the floods of ungodliness made me afraid. NIV 4 The cords of death entangled me; the torrents of destruction overwhelmed me. ASV 5 The cords of Sheol were round about me; The snares of death came upon me. NIV 5 The cords of the grave coiled around me; the snares of death confronted me. ASV 6 In my distress I called upon Jehovah, And cried unto my God: He heard my voice out of his temple, And my cry before him came into his ears. NIV 6 In my distress I called to the LORD; I cried to my God for help. From his temple he heard my voice; my cry came before him, into his ears. ASV 7 Then the earth shook and trembled; The foundations also of the mountains quaked And were shaken, because he was wroth. NIV 7 The earth trembled and quaked, and the foundations of the mountains shook; they trembled because he was angry. ASV 8 There went up a smoke out of his nostrils, And fire out of his mouth devoured: Coals were kindled by it. NIV 8 Smoke rose from his nostrils; consuming fire came from his mouth, burning coals blazed out of it. ASV 9 He bowed the heavens also, and came down; And thick darkness was under his feet. NIV 9 He parted the heavens and came down; dark clouds were under his feet. ASV 10 And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly; Yea, he soared upon the wings of the wind. NIV 10 He mounted the cherubim and flew; he soared on the wings of the wind. ASV 11 He made darkness his hiding-place, his pavilion round about him, Darkness of waters, thick clouds of the skies. NIV 11 He made darkness his covering, his canopy around him-- the dark rain clouds of the sky. ASV 12 At the brightness before him his thick clouds passed, Hailstones and coals of fire. NIV 12 Out of the brightness of his presence clouds advanced, with hailstones and bolts of lightning. ASV 13 Jehovah also thundered in the heavens, And the Most High uttered his voice, Hailstones and coals of fire. NIV 13 The LORD thundered from heaven; the voice of the Most High resounded. ASV 14 And he sent out his arrows, and scattered them; Yea, lightnings manifold, and discomfited them. NIV 14 He shot his arrows and scattered [the enemies], great bolts of lightning and routed them. ASV 15 Then the channels of waters appeared, And the foundations of the world were laid bare, At thy rebuke, O Jehovah, At the blast of the breath of thy nostrils. NIV 15 The valleys of the sea were exposed and the foundations of the earth laid bare at your rebuke, O LORD, at the blast of breath from your nostrils. ASV 16 He sent from on high, he took me; He drew me out of many waters. NIV 16 He reached down from on high and took hold of me; he drew me out of deep waters. ASV 17 He delivered me from my strong enemy, And from them that hated me; For they were too mighty for me. NIV 17 He rescued me from my powerful enemy, from my foes, who were too strong for me. ASV 18 They came upon me in the day of my calamity; But Jehovah was my stay. NIV 18 They confronted me in the day of my disaster, but the LORD was my support. ASV 19 He brought me forth also into a large place; He delivered me, because he delighted in me. NIV 19 He brought me out into a spacious place; he rescued me because he delighted in me. ASV 20 Jehovah hath rewarded me according to my righteousness; According to the cleanness of my hands hath he recompensed me. NIV 20 The LORD has dealt with me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands he has rewarded me. ASV 21 For I have kept the ways of Jehovah, And have not wickedly departed from my God. NIV 21 For I have kept the ways of the LORD; I have not done evil by turning from my God. ASV 22 For all his ordinances were before me, And I put not away his statutes from me. NIV 22 All his laws are before me; I have not turned away from his decrees. ASV 23 I was also perfect with him, And I kept myself from mine iniquity. NIV 23 I have been blameless before him and have kept myself from sin. ASV 24 Therefore hath Jehovah recompensed me according to my righteousness, According to the cleanness of my hands in his eyesight. NIV 24 The LORD has rewarded me according to my righteousness, according to the cleanness of my hands in his sight. ASV 25 With the merciful thou wilt show thyself merciful; With the perfect man thou wilt show thyself perfect; NIV 25 To the faithful you show yourself faithful, to the blameless you show yourself blameless, ASV 26 With the pure thou wilt show thyself pure; And with the perverse thou wilt show thyself froward. NIV 26 to the pure you show yourself pure, but to the crooked you show yourself shrewd. ASV 27 For thou wilt save the afflicted people; But the haughty eyes thou wilt bring down. NIV 27 You save the humble but bring low those whose eyes are haughty. ASV 28 For thou wilt light my lamp: Jehovah my God will lighten my darkness. NIV 28 You, O LORD, keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into light. ASV 29 For by thee I run upon a troop; And by my God do I leap over a wall. NIV 29 With your help I can advance against a troop; with my God I can scale a wall. ASV 30 As for God, his way is perfect: The word of Jehovah is tried; He is a shield unto all them that take refuge in him. NIV 30 As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is flawless. He is a shield for all who take refuge in him. ASV 31 For who is God, save Jehovah? And who is a rock, besides our God, NIV 31 For who is God besides the LORD? And who is the Rock except our God? ASV 32 The God that girdeth me with strength, And maketh my way perfect? NIV 32 It is God who arms me with strength and makes my way perfect. ASV 33 He maketh my feet like hinds' [feet]: And setteth me upon my high places. NIV 33 He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he enables me to stand on the heights. ASV 34 He teacheth my hands to war; So that mine arms do bend a bow of brass. NIV 34 He trains my hands for battle; my arms can bend a bow of bronze. ASV 35 Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation; And thy right hand hath holden me up, And thy gentleness hath made me great. NIV 35 You give me your shield of victory, and your right hand sustains me; you stoop down to make me great. ASV 36 Thou hast enlarged my steps under me, And my feet have not slipped. NIV 36 You broaden the path beneath me, so that my ankles do not turn. ASV 37 I will pursue mine enemies, and overtake them; Neither will I turn again till they are consumed. NIV 37 I pursued my enemies and overtook them; I did not turn back till they were destroyed. ASV 38 I will smite them through, so that they shall not be able to rise: They shall fall under my feet. NIV 38 I crushed them so that they could not rise; they fell beneath my feet. ASV 39 For thou hast girded me with strength unto the battle: Thou hast subdued under me those that rose up against me. NIV 39 You armed me with strength for battle; you made my adversaries bow at my feet. ASV 40 Thou hast also made mine enemies turn their backs unto me, That I might cut off them that hate me. NIV 40 You made my enemies turn their backs in flight, and I destroyed my foes. ASV 41 They cried, but there was none to save; Even unto Jehovah, but he answered them not. NIV 41 They cried for help, but there was no one to save them-- to the LORD, but he did not answer. ASV 42 Then did I beat them small as the dust before the wind; I did cast them out as the mire of the streets. NIV 42 I beat them as fine as dust borne on the wind; I poured them out like mud in the streets. ASV 43 Thou hast delivered me from the strivings of the people; Thou hast made me the head of the nations: A people whom I have not known shall serve me. NIV 43 You have delivered me from the attacks of the people; you have made me the head of nations; people I did not know are subject to me. ASV 44 As soon as they hear of me they shall obey me; The foreigners shall submit themselves unto me. NIV 44 As soon as they hear me, they obey me; foreigners cringe before me. ASV 45 The foreigners shall fade away, And shall come trembling out of their close places. NIV 45 They all lose heart; they come trembling from their strongholds. ASV 46 Jehovah liveth; And blessed be my rock; And exalted be the God of my salvation, NIV 46 The LORD lives! Praise be to my Rock! Exalted be God my Savior! ASV 47 Even the God that executeth vengeance for me, And subdueth peoples under me. NIV 47 He is the God who avenges me, who subdues nations under me, ASV 48 He rescueth me from mine enemies; Yea, thou liftest me up above them that rise up against me; Thou deliverest me from the violent man. NIV 48 who saves me from my enemies. You exalted me above my foes; from violent men you rescued me.
