Holman Christian Standard (CSB) New International Version (NIV)
1 Lord, I call to You; my rock, do not be deaf to me. If You remain silent to me, I will be 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 the sound of my pleading when I cry to You for help, when I lift up my hands toward Your holy 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 Do not drag me away with the wicked, with the evildoers, who speak in friendly ways with their neighbors, while malice is 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 Repay them according to what they have done- according to the evil of their deeds. Repay them according to the work of their hands; give them back 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 do not consider what the Lord has done or the work of His hands, He will tear them down and not rebuild them. 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 May the Lord be praised, for He has heard the sound of my pleading. 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 in Him, and I am helped. Therefore my heart rejoices, and I praise 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 the strength of His people; He is a stronghold of salvation for His anointed. 8 The LORD is the strength of his people, a fortress of salvation for his anointed one.
9 Save Your people, bless Your possession, shepherd them, and carry them forever. 9 Save your people and bless your inheritance; be their shepherd and carry them forever.
