New International Reader's Version (NIRV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Lord, don't correct me when you are angry. Don't punish me when you are burning with anger. 1 O LORD, do not rebuke me in your anger or discipline me in your wrath.
2 Lord, have mercy on me. I'm so weak. Lord, heal me. My body is full of pain. 2 Be merciful to me, LORD, for I am faint; O LORD, heal me, for my bones are in agony.
3 My soul is very troubled. Lord, how long will it be until you save me? 3 My soul is in anguish. How long, O LORD, how long?
4 Lord, turn to me and help me. Save me. Your love never fails. 4 Turn, O LORD, and deliver me; save me because of your unfailing love.
5 People can't remember you when they are dead. How can they praise you when they are in the grave? 5 No one remembers you when he is dead. Who praises you from the grave ?
6 My groaning has worn me out. All night long my tears flood my bed. My bed is wet because of my crying. 6 I am worn out from groaning; all night long I flood my bed with weeping and drench my couch with tears.
7 I'm so sad I can't see very well. My eyesight gets worse because of all of my enemies. 7 My eyes grow weak with sorrow; they fail because of all my foes.
8 Get away from me, all of you who do evil. The LORD has heard my sobbing. 8 Away from me, all you who do evil, for the LORD has heard my weeping.
9 The LORD has heard my cry for his favor. The LORD accepts my prayer. 9 The LORD has heard my cry for mercy; the LORD accepts my prayer.
10 All of my enemies will be troubled and put to shame. They will turn back in dishonor. It will happen suddenly. 10 All my enemies will be ashamed and dismayed; they will turn back in sudden disgrace.
