Hebrew Names Version (HNV) New International Version (NIV)
1 <> To you, LORD, I call. My rock, don't be deaf to me; Lest, if you are silent to me, I would become like those who 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 petitions, when I cry to you, When I lift up my hands toward your Most Holy Place. 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 draw me away with the wicked, With the workers of iniquity who speak shalom with their neighbors, But mischief 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 Give them according to their work, and according to the wickedness of their doings. Give them according to the operation of their hands. Bring back on them 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 don't regard the works of the LORD, Nor the operation of his hands, He will break them down 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 the LORD, Because he has heard the voice of my petitions. 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 has trusted in him, and I am helped. Therefore my heart greatly rejoices. With my song I will thank 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 The LORD is their strength. He is a stronghold of salvation to his anointed. 8 The LORD is the strength of his people, a fortress of salvation for his anointed one.
9 Save your people, and bless your inheritance. Be their shepherd also, and bear them up forever. 9 Save your people and bless your inheritance; be their shepherd and carry them forever.
