American Standard Version (ASV) New International Version (NIV)
1 I cry with my voice unto Jehovah; With my voice unto Jehovah do I make supplication. 1 I cry aloud to the LORD; I lift up my voice to the LORD for mercy.
2 I pour out my complaint before him; I show before him my trouble. 2 I pour out my complaint before him; before him I tell my trouble.
3 When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, Thou knewest my path. In the way wherein I walk Have they hidden a snare for me. 3 When my spirit grows faint within me, it is you who know my way. In the path where I walk men have hidden a snare for me.
4 Look on [my] right hand, and see; For there is no man that knoweth me: Refuge hath failed me; No man careth for my soul. 4 Look to my right and see; no one is concerned for me. I have no refuge; no one cares for my life.
5 I cried unto thee, O Jehovah; I said, Thou art my refuge, My portion in the land of the living. 5 I cry to you, O LORD; I say, "You are my refuge, my portion in the land of the living."
6 Attend unto my cry; For I am brought very low: Deliver me from my persecutors; For they are stronger than I. 6 Listen to my cry, for I am in desperate need; rescue me from those who pursue me, for they are too strong for me.
7 Bring my soul out of prison, That I may give thanks unto thy name: The righteous shall compass me about; For thou wilt deal bountifully with me. 7 Set me free from my prison, that I may praise your name. Then the righteous will gather about me because of your goodness to me.
