Common English Bible (CEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 Answer me when I cry out, my righteous God! Set me free from my troubles! Have mercy on me! Listen to my prayer! 1 Answer me when I call to you, O my righteous God. Give me relief from my distress; be merciful to me and hear my prayer.
2 How long, you people, will my reputation be insulted? How long will you continue to love what is worthless and go after lies? Selah 2 How long, O men, will you turn my glory into shame ? How long will you love delusions and seek false gods ? "Selah"
3 Know this: the LORD takes personal care of the faithful. The LORD will hear me when I cry out to him. 3 Know that the LORD has set apart the godly for himself; the LORD will hear when I call to him.
4 So be afraid, and don't sin! Think hard about it in your bed and weep over it! Selah 4 In your anger do not sin; when you are on your beds, search your hearts and be silent. "Selah"
5 Bring righteous offerings, and trust the LORD! 5 Offer right sacrifices and trust in the LORD.
6 Many people say, "We can't find goodness anywhere. The light of your face has left us, LORD!" 6 Many are asking, "Who can show us any good?" Let the light of your face shine upon us, O LORD.
7 But you have filled my heart with more joy than when their wheat and wine are everywhere! 7 You have filled my heart with greater joy than when their grain and new wine abound.
8 I will lie down and fall asleep in peace because you alone, LORD, let me live in safety. 8 I will lie down and sleep in peace, for you alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety.
