New American Standard (NAS) New International Version (NIV)
1 In You, O LORD, I have taken refuge; Let me never be ashamed; In Your righteousness deliver me. 1 In you, O LORD, I have taken refuge; let me never be put to shame; deliver me in your righteousness.
2 Incline Your ear to me, rescue me quickly; Be to me a rock of strength, A stronghold to save me. 2 Turn your ear to me, come quickly to my rescue; be my rock of refuge, a strong fortress to save me.
3 For You are my rock and my fortress; For Your name's sake You will lead me and guide me. 3 Since you are my rock and my fortress, for the sake of your name lead and guide me.
4 You will pull me out of the net which they have secretly laid for me, For You are my strength. 4 Free me from the trap that is set for me, for you are my refuge.
5 Into Your hand I commit my spirit; You have ransomed me, O LORD, God of truth. 5 Into your hands I commit my spirit; redeem me, O LORD, the God of truth.
6 I hate those who regard vain idols, But I trust in the LORD. 6 I hate those who cling to worthless idols; I trust in the LORD.
7 I will rejoice and be glad in Your lovingkindness, Because You have seen my affliction; You have known the troubles of my soul, 7 I will be glad and rejoice in your love, for you saw my affliction and knew the anguish of my soul.
8 And You have not given me over into the hand of the enemy; You have set my feet in a large place. 8 You have not handed me over to the enemy but have set my feet in a spacious place.
9 Be gracious to me, O LORD, for I am in distress; My eye is wasted away from grief, my soul and my body also. 9 Be merciful to me, O LORD, for I am in distress; my eyes grow weak with sorrow, my soul and my body with grief.
10 For my life is spent with sorrow And my years with sighing; My strength has failed because of my iniquity, And my body has wasted away. 10 My life is consumed by anguish and my years by groaning; my strength fails because of my affliction, and my bones grow weak.
11 Because of all my adversaries, I have become a reproach, Especially to my neighbors, And an object of dread to my acquaintances; Those who see me in the street flee from me. 11 Because of all my enemies, I am the utter contempt of my neighbors; I am a dread to my friends-- those who see me on the street flee from me.
12 I am forgotten as a dead man, out of mind; I am like a broken vessel. 12 I am forgotten by them as though I were dead; I have become like broken pottery.
13 For I have heard the slander of many, Terror is on every side; While they took counsel together against me, They schemed to take away my life. 13 For I hear the slander of many; there is terror on every side; they conspire against me and plot to take my life.
14 But as for me, I trust in You, O LORD, I say, "You are my God." 14 But I trust in you, O LORD; I say, "You are my God."
15 My times are in Your hand; Deliver me from the hand of my enemies and from those who persecute me. 15 My times are in your hands; deliver me from my enemies and from those who pursue me.
16 Make Your face to shine upon Your servant; Save me in Your lovingkindness. 16 Let your face shine on your servant; save me in your unfailing love.
17 Let me not be put to shame, O LORD, for I call upon You; Let the wicked be put to shame, let them be silent in Sheol. 17 Let me not be put to shame, O LORD, for I have cried out to you; but let the wicked be put to shame and lie silent in the grave.
18 Let the lying lips be mute, Which speak arrogantly against the righteous With pride and contempt. 18 Let their lying lips be silenced, for with pride and contempt they speak arrogantly against the righteous.
19 How great is Your goodness, Which You have stored up for those who fear You, Which You have wrought for those who take refuge in You, Before the sons of men! 19 How great is your goodness, which you have stored up for those who fear you, which you bestow in the sight of men on those who take refuge in you.
20 You hide them in the secret place of Your presence from the conspiracies of man; You keep them secretly in a shelter from the strife of tongues. 20 In the shelter of your presence you hide them from the intrigues of men; in your dwelling you keep them safe from accusing tongues.
21 Blessed be the LORD, For He has made marvelous His lovingkindness to me in a besieged city. 21 Praise be to the LORD, for he showed his wonderful love to me when I was in a besieged city.
22 As for me, I said in my alarm, "I am cut off from before Your eyes "; Nevertheless You heard the voice of my supplications When I cried to You. 22 In my alarm I said, "I am cut off from your sight!" Yet you heard my cry for mercy when I called to you for help.
23 O love the LORD, all you His godly ones! The LORD preserves the faithful And fully recompenses the proud doer. 23 Love the LORD, all his saints! The LORD preserves the faithful, but the proud he pays back in full.
24 Be strong and let your heart take courage, All you who hope in the LORD. 24 Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the LORD.
