Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 To the Overseer. -- A Psalm of David. O the happiness of him Who is acting wisely unto the poor, In a day of evil doth Jehovah deliver him. 1 Blessed is he who has regard for the weak; the LORD delivers him in times of trouble.
2 Jehovah doth preserve him and revive him, He is happy in the land, And Thou givest him not into 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 Jehovah supporteth on a couch of sickness, All his bed Thou hast turned in his weakness. 3 The LORD will sustain him on his sickbed and restore him from his bed of illness.
4 I -- I said, `O Jehovah, favour me, Heal my soul, for I did sin against Thee,' 4 I said, "O LORD, have mercy on me; heal me, for I have sinned against you."
5 Mine enemies say evil of me: When he dieth -- his name hath perished! 5 My enemies say of me in malice, "When will he die and his name perish?"
6 And if he came to see -- vanity he speaketh, His heart gathereth iniquity to itself, He goeth out -- at the street he speaketh. 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 hating me whisper together against me, Against me they devise evil to me: 7 All my enemies whisper together against me; they imagine the worst for me, saying,
8 A thing of Belial is poured out on him, And because he lay down he riseth not again. 8 "A vile disease has beset him; he will never get up from the place where he lies."
9 Even mine ally, in whom I trusted, One eating my bread, made great the heel against me, 9 Even my close friend, whom I trusted, he who shared my bread, has lifted up his heel against me.
10 And Thou, Jehovah, favour me, And cause me to rise, And I give recompence to them. 10 But you, O LORD, have mercy on me; raise me up, that I may repay them.
11 By this I have known, That Thou hast delighted in me, Because my enemy shouteth not over me. 11 I know that you are pleased with me, for my enemy does not triumph over me.
12 As to me, in mine integrity, Thou hast taken hold upon me, And causest me to stand before Thee to the age. 12 In my integrity you uphold me and set me in your presence forever.
13 Blessed [is] Jehovah, God of Israel, From the age -- and unto the age. Amen and Amen. 13 Praise be to the LORD, the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting. Amen and Amen.
