The Darby Translation (DBY) New International Version (NIV)
1 {[A Psalm] of David.} Unto thee, Jehovah, do I call; my rock, be not silent unto me, lest, [if] thou keep silence toward me, I become like them that go down into 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 Hear the voice of my supplications, when I cry unto thee, when I lift up my hands toward the oracle of thy holiness. 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 Draw me not away with the wicked, and with the workers of iniquity, who speak peace to their neighbours, and mischief is in their heart. 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 Give them according to their doing, and according to the wickedness of their deeds; give them after the work of their hands, render to them their desert. 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 For they regard not the deeds of Jehovah, nor the work of his hands: he will destroy them, and not build them up. 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 Blessed be Jehovah, for he hath heard the voice of my supplications. 6 Praise be to the LORD, for he has heard my cry for mercy.
7 Jehovah is my strength and my shield; my heart confided in him, and I was helped: therefore my heart exulteth, and with my song will I praise him. 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 Jehovah is their strength; and he is the stronghold of salvation to his anointed one. 8 The LORD is the strength of his people, a fortress of salvation for his anointed one.
9 Save thy people, and bless thine inheritance; and feed them, and lift them up for ever. 9 Save your people and bless your inheritance; be their shepherd and carry them forever.
