Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 By David. Unto Thee, O Jehovah, I call, My rock, be not silent to me! Lest Thou be silent to me, And I have been compared With 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 Hear the voice of my supplications, In my crying unto Thee, In my lifting up my hands toward thy holy oracle. 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 with the wicked, And with workers of iniquity, Speaking peace with their neighbours, And evil 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 to them according to their acting, And according to the evil of their doings. According to the work of their hands give to them. Return their deed to them. 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 attend not to the doing of Jehovah, And unto the work of His hands. He throweth them down, And doth 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 [is] 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, In Him my heart trusted, and I have been helped. And my heart exulteth, And with my song I 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 Jehovah [is] strength to him, Yea, the strength of the salvation of His anointed [is] He. 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 carry them to the age! 9 Save your people and bless your inheritance; be their shepherd and carry them forever.
