Common English Bible (CEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 I cry out to you, LORD. You are my rock; don't refuse to hear me. If you won't talk to me, I'll be just like those going down to the pit. 1 To you I call, O LORD my Rock; do not turn a deaf ear to me. For if you remain silent, I will be like those who have gone down to the pit.
2 Listen to my request for mercy when I cry out to you, when I lift up my hands to your holy inner sanctuary. 2 Hear my cry for mercy as I call to you for help, as I lift up my hands toward your Most Holy Place.
3 Don't drag me off with the wicked and those who do evil; the type who talk nice to their friends while evil thoughts are in their hearts! 3 Do not drag me away with the wicked, with those who do evil, who speak cordially with their neighbors but harbor malice in their hearts.
4 Pay them back for what they've done! Pay them back for their evil deeds! Pay them back for their handiwork! Give back to them exactly what they deserve! 4 Repay them for their deeds and for their evil work; repay them for what their hands have done and bring back upon them what they deserve.
5 Because they have no regard for what the LORD has done, no regard for his handiwork, God will tear them down and never rebuild! 5 Since they show no regard for the works of the LORD and what his hands have done, he will tear them down and never build them up again.
6 Bless the LORD because he has listened to my request for mercy! 6 Praise be to the LORD, for he has heard my cry for mercy.
7 The LORD is my strength and my shield. My heart trusts him. I was helped, my heart rejoiced, and I thank him with my song. 7 The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to him in song.
8 The LORD is his people's strength; he is a fortress of protection for his anointed one. 8 The LORD is the strength of his people, a fortress of salvation for his anointed one.
9 Save your people, God! Bless your possession! Shepherd them and carry them for all time! 9 Save your people and bless your inheritance; be their shepherd and carry them forever.
