King James Version (KJV) New International Version (NIV)
1 I cried unto the LORD with my voice; with my voice unto the LORD did I make my supplication . 1 I cry aloud to the LORD; I lift up my voice to the LORD for mercy.
2 I poured out my complaint before him; I shewed 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, then thou knewest my path. In the way wherein I walked have they privily laid 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 I looked on my right hand, and beheld , but there was no man that would know me: refuge failed me; no man cared 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 LORD: I said , Thou art my refuge and 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 praise thy name: the righteous shall compass me about ; for thou shalt 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.
