Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 To the Overseer. -- By a servant of Jehovah, by David. The transgression of the wicked Is affirming within my heart, `Fear of God is not before his eyes, 1 An oracle is within my heart concerning the sinfulness of the wicked: There is no fear of God before his eyes.
2 For he made [it] smooth to himself in his eyes, To find his iniquity to be hated. 2 For in his own eyes he flatters himself too much to detect or hate his sin.
3 The words of his mouth [are] iniquity and deceit, He ceased to act prudently -- to do good. 3 The words of his mouth are wicked and deceitful; he has ceased to be wise and to do good.
4 Iniquity he deviseth on his bed, He stationeth himself on a way not good, Evil he doth not refuse.' 4 Even on his bed he plots evil; he commits himself to a sinful course and does not reject what is wrong.
5 O Jehovah, in the heavens [is] Thy kindness, Thy faithfulness [is] unto the clouds. 5 Your love, O LORD, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies.
6 Thy righteousness [is] as mountains of God, Thy judgments [are] a great deep. Man and beast Thou savest, O Jehovah. 6 Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains, your justice like the great deep. O LORD, you preserve both man and beast.
7 How precious [is] Thy kindness, O God, And the sons of men In the shadow of Thy wings do trust. 7 How priceless is your unfailing love! Both high and low among men find refuge in the shadow of your wings.
8 They are filled from the fatness of Thy house, And the stream of Thy delights Thou dost cause them to drink. 8 They feast on the abundance of your house; you give them drink from your river of delights.
9 For with Thee [is] a fountain of life, In Thy light we see light. 9 For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light.
10 Draw out Thy kindness to those knowing Thee, And Thy righteousness to the upright of heart. 10 Continue your love to those who know you, your righteousness to the upright in heart.
11 Let not a foot of pride meet me, And a hand of the wicked let not move me. 11 May the foot of the proud not come against me, nor the hand of the wicked drive me away.
12 There have workers of iniquity fallen, They have been overthrown, And have not been able to arise! 12 See how the evildoers lie fallen-- thrown down, not able to rise!
