Good News Translation (GNT) New International Version (NIV)
1 I praise you, Lord, because you have saved me and kept my enemies from gloating 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 I cried to you for help, O Lord my God, and you healed me; 2 O LORD my God, I called to you for help and you healed me.
3 you kept me from the grave. I was on my way to the depths below, but you restored my life. 3 O LORD, you brought me up from the grave; you spared me from going down into the pit.
4 Sing praise to the Lord, all his faithful people! Remember what the Holy One has done, and give him thanks! 4 Sing to the LORD, you saints of his; praise his holy name.
5 His anger lasts only a moment, his goodness for a lifetime. Tears may flow in the 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 I felt secure and said to myself, "I will never be defeated." 6 When I felt secure, I said, "I will never be shaken."
7 You were good to me, Lord; you protected me like a mountain fortress. But then you hid yourself from me, and I was afraid. 7 O LORD, when you favored me, you made my mountain stand firm; but when you hid your face, I was dismayed.
8 I called to you, Lord; I begged for your help: 8 To you, O LORD, I called; to the Lord I cried for mercy:
9 "What will you gain from my death? What profit from my going to the grave? Are dead people able to praise you? Can they proclaim your unfailing goodness? 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 me, Lord, and be merciful! Help me, Lord!" 10 Hear, O LORD, and be merciful to me; O LORD, be my help."
11 You have changed my sadness into a joyful dance; you have taken away my sorrow and surrounded me with joy. 11 You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy,
12 So I will not be silent; I will sing praise to you. Lord, you are my God; I will give you thanks forever. 12 that my heart may sing to you and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give you thanks forever.
