Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 A Psalm of David. O Jehovah, hear my prayer, Give ear unto my supplications, In Thy faithfulness answer me -- in Thy righteousness. 1 O LORD, hear my prayer, listen to my cry for mercy; in your faithfulness and righteousness come to my relief.
2 And enter not into judgment with Thy servant, For no one living is justified before Thee. 2 Do not bring your servant into judgment, for no one living is righteous before you.
3 For an enemy hath pursued my soul, He hath bruised to the earth my life, He hath caused me to dwell in dark places, As the dead of old. 3 The enemy pursues me, he crushes me to the ground; he makes me dwell in darkness like those long dead.
4 And my spirit in me is become feeble, Within me is my heart become desolate. 4 So my spirit grows faint within me; my heart within me is dismayed.
5 I have remembered days of old, I have meditated on all Thine acts, On the work of Thy hand I muse. 5 I remember the days of long ago; I meditate on all your works and consider what your hands have done.
6 I have spread forth my hands unto Thee, My soul [is] as a weary land for Thee. Selah. 6 I spread out my hands to you; my soul thirsts for you like a parched land. "Selah"
7 Haste, answer me, O Jehovah, My spirit hath been consumed, Hide not Thou Thy face from me, Or I have been compared with those going down [to] the pit. 7 Answer me quickly, O LORD; my spirit fails. Do not hide your face from me or I will be like those who go down to the pit.
8 Cause me to hear in the morning Thy kindness, For in Thee I have trusted, Cause me to know the way that I go, For unto Thee I have lifted up my soul. 8 Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul.
9 Deliver me from mine enemies, O Jehovah, Near Thee I am covered. 9 Rescue me from my enemies, O LORD, for I hide myself in you.
10 Teach me to do Thy good pleasure, For Thou [art] my God -- Thy Spirit [is] good, Lead me into a land of uprightness. 10 Teach me to do your will, for you are my God; may your good Spirit lead me on level ground.
11 For Thy name's sake O Jehovah, Thou dost quicken me, In Thy righteousness, Thou bringest out from distress my soul, 11 For your name's sake, O LORD, preserve my life; in your righteousness, bring me out of trouble.
12 And in Thy kindness cuttest off mine enemies, And hast destroyed all the adversaries of my soul, For I [am] Thy servant! 12 In your unfailing love, silence my enemies; destroy all my foes, for I am your servant.
