Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
1 To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David. How long, O LORD? Wilt thou forget me for ever? How long wilt thou hide thy face 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 bear pain in my soul, and have sorrow in my heart all the day? How long shall my enemy be exalted 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 Consider and answer me, O LORD my God; lighten my eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death; 3 Look on me and answer, O LORD my God. Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death;
4 lest my enemy say, "I have prevailed over him"; lest my foes rejoice because I am shaken. 4 my enemy will say, "I have overcome him," and my foes will rejoice when I fall.
5 But I have trusted in thy steadfast love; my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation. 5 But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation.
6 I will sing to the LORD, because he has dealt bountifully with me. 6 I will sing to the LORD, for he has been good to me.
