English Standard Version (ESV) New International Version (NIV)
1 I will extol you, O LORD, for you have drawn me up and have not let my foes rejoice 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 cried to you for help, and you have healed me. 2 O LORD my God, I called to you for help and you healed me.
3 O LORD, you have brought up my soul from Sheol; you restored me to life from among those who go down to the pit. 3 O LORD, you brought me up from the grave; you spared me from going down into the pit.
4 Sing praises to the LORD, O you his saints, and give thanks to his holy name. 4 Sing to the LORD, you saints of his; praise his holy name.
5 For his anger is but for a moment, and his favor is for a lifetime. Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes with 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 As for me, I said in my prosperity, "I shall never be moved." 6 When I felt secure, I said, "I will never be shaken."
7 By your favor, O LORD, you made my mountain stand strong; you hid your face; I was dismayed. 7 O LORD, when you favored me, you made my mountain stand firm; but when you hid your face, I was dismayed.
8 To you, O LORD, I cry, and to the Lord I plead for mercy: 8 To you, O LORD, I called; to the Lord I cried for mercy:
9 "What profit is there in my death, if I go down to the pit? Will the dust praise you? Will it tell of your faithfulness? 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 Hear, O LORD, and be merciful to me! O LORD, be my helper!" 10 Hear, O LORD, and be merciful to me; O LORD, be my help."
11 You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; you have loosed my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness, 11 You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy,
12 that my glory may sing your praise and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks to you forever! 12 that my heart may sing to you and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give you thanks forever.
