New International Reader's Version (NIRV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Lord, how long must I wait? Will you forget me forever? How long will you turn your face away from me? 1 How long, O LORD? Will you forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me?
2 How long must I struggle with my thoughts? How long must my heart be sad day after day? How long will my enemies keep winning the battle over me? 2 How long must I wrestle with my thoughts and every day have sorrow in my heart? How long will my enemy triumph over me?
3 LORD my God, look at me and answer me. Give me new life, or I will die. 3 Look on me and answer, O LORD my God. Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death;
4 Then my enemies will say, "We have beaten him." They will be filled with joy when I die. 4 my enemy will say, "I have overcome him," and my foes will rejoice when I fall.
5 But I trust in your faithful love. My heart is filled with joy because you will save me. 5 But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation.
6 I will sing to the Lord. He has been so good to me. 6 I will sing to the LORD, for he has been good to me.
