New King James Version
53 And He (A)led them on safely, so that they did not fear;
But the sea (B)overwhelmed their enemies.
54 And He brought them to His (C)holy border,
This mountain (D)which His right hand had acquired.
55 (E)He also drove out the nations before them,
(F)Allotted them an inheritance by [a]survey,
And made the tribes of Israel dwell in their tents.
- Psalm 78:55 surveyed measurement, lit. measuring cord
New International Version
53 He guided them safely, so they were unafraid;
but the sea engulfed(A) their enemies.(B)
54 And so he brought them to the border of his holy land,
to the hill country his right hand(C) had taken.
55 He drove out nations(D) before them
and allotted their lands to them as an inheritance;(E)
he settled the tribes of Israel in their homes.
