Third Millennium Bible (TMB) New International Version (NIV)
1 <> Unto Thee will I cry, O LORD my rock; be not silent to me, lest, if Thou be silent, 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 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 Draw me not away with the wicked and with the workers of iniquity, who speak peace to 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 to them according to their deeds and according to the wickedness of their endeavors; give to them according to the work of their hands; render to them their deserts. 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 regard not the works of the LORD, nor the operation of His hands, He shall 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 the LORD, because He hath heard the voice of my supplications! 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 trusted in Him, and I am helped. Therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth, 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 The LORD is their strength, and He is the saving strength of His anointed. 8 The LORD is the strength of his people, a fortress of salvation for his anointed one.
9 Save the people, and bless Thine inheritance; feed them also, and lift them up forever. 9 Save your people and bless your inheritance; be their shepherd and carry them forever.
