Good News Translation (GNT) New International Version (NIV)
1 From the depths of my despair I call to you, Lord. 1 Out of the depths I cry to you, O LORD;
2 Hear my cry, O Lord; listen to my call for help! 2 O Lord, hear my voice. Let your ears be attentive to my cry for mercy.
3 If you kept a record of our sins, who could escape being condemned? 3 If you, O LORD, kept a record of sins, O Lord, who could stand?
4 But you forgive us, so that we should stand in awe of you. 4 But with you there is forgiveness; therefore you are feared.
5 I wait eagerly for the Lord's help, and in his word I trust. 5 I wait for the LORD, my soul waits, and in his word I put my hope.
6 I wait for the Lord more eagerly than sentries wait for the dawn - than sentries wait for the dawn. 6 My soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen wait for the morning, more than watchmen wait for the morning.
7 Israel, trust in the Lord, because his love is constant and he is always willing to save. 7 O Israel, put your hope in the LORD, for with the LORD is unfailing love and with him is full redemption.
8 He will save his people Israel from all their sins. 8 He himself will redeem Israel from all their sins.
