GOD'S WORD Translation (GW) New International Version (NIV)
1 I will honor you highly, O LORD, because you have pulled me out [of the pit] and have not let my enemies 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 out to you for help, and you healed me. 2 O LORD my God, I called to you for help and you healed me.
3 O LORD, you brought me up from the grave. You called me back to life from among those who had gone into the pit. 3 O LORD, you brought me up from the grave; you spared me from going down into the pit.
4 Make music to praise the LORD, you faithful people who belong to him. Remember his holiness by giving thanks. 4 Sing to the LORD, you saints of his; praise his holy name.
5 His anger lasts only a moment. His favor lasts a lifetime. Weeping may last for the night, but there is a song of joy 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 all was well with me, I said, "I will never be shaken." 6 When I felt secure, I said, "I will never be shaken."
7 O LORD, by your favor you have made my mountain stand firm. When you hid your face, I was terrified. 7 O LORD, when you favored me, you made my mountain stand firm; but when you hid your face, I was dismayed.
8 I will cry out to you, O LORD. I will plead to the Lord for mercy: 8 To you, O LORD, I called; to the Lord I cried for mercy:
9 "How will you profit if my blood is shed, if I go into the pit? Will the dust [of my body] give thanks to you? Will it tell about your truth?" 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 have pity on me! O LORD, be my helper! 10 Hear, O LORD, and be merciful to me; O LORD, be my help."
11 You have changed my sobbing into dancing. You have removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy 11 You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy,
12 so that my soul may praise you with music 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.
