Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 An Instruction of David, a Prayer when he is in the cave. My voice [is] unto Jehovah, I cry, My voice [is] unto Jehovah, I entreat grace. 1 I cry aloud to the LORD; I lift up my voice to the LORD for mercy.
2 I pour forth before Him my meditation, My distress before Him I declare. 2 I pour out my complaint before him; before him I tell my trouble.
3 When my spirit hath been feeble in me, Then Thou hast known my path; In the way [in] which I walk, They have hid 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 Looking on the right hand -- and seeing, And I have none recognizing; Perished hath refuge from me, There is none inquiring 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 have cried unto thee, O Jehovah, I have 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 Thou unto my loud cry, For I have become very low, Deliver Thou me from my pursuers, For they have been 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 forth from prison my soul to confess Thy name, The righteous do compass me about, When Thou conferrest benefits upon 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.
