King James Version (KJV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the LORD will deliver him in time of trouble. 1 Blessed is he who has regard for the weak; the LORD delivers him in times of trouble.
2 The LORD will preserve him, and keep him alive ; and he shall be blessed upon the earth: and thou wilt not deliver him unto the will of his enemies . 2 The LORD will protect him and preserve his life; he will bless him in the land and not surrender him to the desire of his foes.
3 The LORD will strengthen him upon the bed of languishing: thou wilt make all his bed in his sickness. 3 The LORD will sustain him on his sickbed and restore him from his bed of illness.
4 I said , LORD, be merciful unto me: heal my soul; for I have sinned against thee. 4 I said, "O LORD, have mercy on me; heal me, for I have sinned against you."
5 Mine enemies speak evil of me, When shall he die , and his name perish ? 5 My enemies say of me in malice, "When will he die and his name perish?"
6 And if he come to see me, he speaketh vanity: his heart gathereth iniquity to itself; when he goeth abroad, he telleth it. 6 Whenever one comes to see me, he speaks falsely, while his heart gathers slander; then he goes out and spreads it abroad.
7 All that hate me whisper together against me: against me do they devise my hurt. 7 All my enemies whisper together against me; they imagine the worst for me, saying,
8 An evil disease, say they, cleaveth fast unto him: and now that he lieth he shall rise up no more . 8 "A vile disease has beset him; he will never get up from the place where he lies."
9 Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted , which did eat of my bread, hath lifted up his heel against me. 9 Even my close friend, whom I trusted, he who shared my bread, has lifted up his heel against me.
10 But thou, O LORD, be merciful unto me, and raise me up , that I may requite them. 10 But you, O LORD, have mercy on me; raise me up, that I may repay them.
11 By this I know that thou favourest me, because mine enemy doth not triumph over me. 11 I know that you are pleased with me, for my enemy does not triumph over me.
12 And as for me, thou upholdest me in mine integrity, and settest me before thy face for ever. 12 In my integrity you uphold me and set me in your presence forever.
13 Blessed be the LORD God of Israel from everlasting, and to everlasting. Amen, and Amen. 13 Praise be to the LORD, the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting. Amen and Amen.
