Bible in Basic English (BBE) New International Version (NIV)
1 I will give you praise and honour, O Lord, because through you I have been lifted up; you have not given my haters cause to be glad over me. 1 I will exalt you, O LORD, for you lifted me out of the depths and did not let my enemies gloat over me.
2 O Lord my God, I sent up my cry to you, and you have made me well. 2 O LORD my God, I called to you for help and you healed me.
3 O Lord, you have made my soul come again from the underworld: you have given me life and kept me from going down among the dead. 3 O LORD, you brought me up from the grave; you spared me from going down into the pit.
4 Make songs to the Lord, O you saints of his, and give praise to his holy name. 4 Sing to the LORD, you saints of his; praise his holy name.
5 For his wrath is only for a minute; in his grace there is life; weeping may be for a night, but joy comes in the morning. 5 For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime; weeping may remain for a night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.
6 When things went well for me I said, I will never be moved. 6 When I felt secure, I said, "I will never be shaken."
7 Lord, by your grace you have kept my mountain strong: when your face was turned from me I was troubled. 7 O LORD, when you favored me, you made my mountain stand firm; but when you hid your face, I was dismayed.
8 My voice went up to you, O Lord; I made my prayer to the Lord. 8 To you, O LORD, I called; to the Lord I cried for mercy:
9 What profit is there in my blood if I go down into the underworld? will the dust give you praise, or be a witness to your help? 9 "What gain is there in my destruction, in my going down into the pit? Will the dust praise you? Will it proclaim your faithfulness?
10 Give ear to me, O Lord, and have mercy on me: Lord, be my helper. 10 Hear, O LORD, and be merciful to me; O LORD, be my help."
11 By you my sorrow is turned into dancing; you have taken away my clothing of grief, and given me robes of joy; 11 You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy,
12 So that my glory may make songs of praise to you and not be quiet. O Lord my God, I will give you praise for ever. 12 that my heart may sing to you and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give you thanks forever.
