Common English Bible (CEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 I cry out loud for help from the LORD. I beg out loud for mercy from the LORD. 1 I cry aloud to the LORD; I lift up my voice to the LORD for mercy.
2 I pour out my concerns before God; I announce my distress to him. 2 I pour out my complaint before him; before him I tell my trouble.
3 When my spirit is weak inside me, you still know my way. But they've hidden a trap for me in the path I'm taking. 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 right beside me: See? No one pays attention to me. There's no escape for me. No one cares about my life. 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 cry to you, LORD, for help. "You are my refuge," I say. "You are all I have 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 Pay close attention to my shouting, because I've been brought down so low! Deliver me from my oppressors because they're stronger than me. 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 Get me out of this prison so I can give thanks to your name. Then the righteous will gather all around me because of your good deeds to 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.
