New American Standard (NAS) New International Version (NIV)
1 To You, O LORD, I call; My rock, do not be deaf to me, For if You are silent to me, I will become like those who go 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 Hear the voice of my supplications 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 And with those who work iniquity, Who speak peace with their neighbors, While evil 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 Requite them according to their work and according to the evil of their practices; Requite them according to the deeds of their hands; Repay them their recompense. 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 regard the works of the LORD Nor the deeds of His hands, He will tear 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 supplication. 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 exults, And with my song I shall 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, And He is a saving defense 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 carry them forever . 9 Save your people and bless your inheritance; be their shepherd and carry them forever.
