New King James Version (NKJV) New International Version (NIV)
1 To the Chief Musician. With stringed instruments. On an eight-stringed harp. A Psalm of David. O Lord, do not rebuke me in Your anger, Nor chasten me in Your hot displeasure. 1 O LORD, do not rebuke me in your anger or discipline me in your wrath.
2 Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I am weak; O Lord, heal me, for my bones are troubled. 2 Be merciful to me, LORD, for I am faint; O LORD, heal me, for my bones are in agony.
3 My soul also is greatly troubled; But You, O Lord--how long? 3 My soul is in anguish. How long, O LORD, how long?
4 Return, O Lord, deliver me! Oh, save me for Your mercies' sake! 4 Turn, O LORD, and deliver me; save me because of your unfailing love.
5 For in death there is no remembrance of You; In the grave who will give You thanks? 5 No one remembers you when he is dead. Who praises you from the grave ?
6 I am weary with my groaning; All night I make my bed swim; I drench my couch with my tears. 6 I am worn out from groaning; all night long I flood my bed with weeping and drench my couch with tears.
7 My eye wastes away because of grief; It grows old because of all my enemies. 7 My eyes grow weak with sorrow; they fail because of all my foes.
8 Depart from me, all you workers of iniquity; For the Lord has heard the voice of my weeping. 8 Away from me, all you who do evil, for the LORD has heard my weeping.
9 The Lord has heard my supplication; The Lord will receive my prayer. 9 The LORD has heard my cry for mercy; the LORD accepts my prayer.
10 Let all my enemies be ashamed and greatly troubled; Let them turn back and be ashamed suddenly. 10 All my enemies will be ashamed and dismayed; they will turn back in sudden disgrace.
