Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 The song of degrees. When I was set in tribulation, I cried to the Lord; and he heard me. (When I was beset with troubles, I cried to the Lord; and he answered me.) 1 I call on the LORD in my distress, and he answers me.
2 Lord, deliver thou my soul from wicked lips; and from a guileful tongue. (Lord, save thou me from wicked lips; and from a deceitful tongue.) 2 Save me, O LORD, from lying lips and from deceitful tongues.
3 What shall be given to thee, either what shall be laid to thee; to a guileful tongue? (What shall be given to thee; that is, how shall he punish thee, O deceitful tongue?) 3 What will he do to you, and what more besides, O deceitful tongue?
4 Sharp arrows of the mighty; with coals that make desolate. (With sharp arrows from the mighty; and with coals that shall make thee desolate.) 4 He will punish you with a warrior's sharp arrows, with burning coals of the broom tree.
5 Alas to me! for my dwelling in an alien land is made long, I dwelled with men dwelling in Kedar; (Alas for me! for my stay here in Mesech is prolonged, and I must live among the people, or in the tents, of Kedar!) 5 Woe to me that I dwell in Meshech, that I live among the tents of Kedar!
6 my soul was much (time) a comeling. I was peaceable with them that hated peace; (I am here too long as a newcomer, or a stranger; yea, too long living with those who hate peace.) 6 Too long have I lived among those who hate peace.
7 when I spake to them, they impugned, either against-said, me without cause. (I am for peace; but whenever I speak of it to them, they be for war.) 7 I am a man of peace; but when I speak, they are for war.
