Revised Standard Version
19 O Lord, my strength and my stronghold,
my refuge in the day of trouble,
to thee shall the nations come
from the ends of the earth and say:
“Our fathers have inherited nought but lies,
worthless things in which there is no profit.
20 Can man make for himself gods?
Such are no gods!”
21 “Therefore, behold, I will make them know, this once I will make them know my power and my might, and they shall know that my name is the Lord.”Read full chapter
New International Version
19 Lord, my strength and my fortress,
my refuge(A) in time of distress,
to you the nations will come(B)
from the ends of the earth and say,
“Our ancestors possessed nothing but false gods,(C)
worthless idols(D) that did them no good.(E)
20 Do people make their own gods?
Yes, but they are not gods!”(F)
21 “Therefore I will teach them—
this time I will teach them
my power and might.
Then they will know
that my name(G) is the Lord.
