The Darby Translation (DBY) New International Version (NIV)
1 {To the chief Musician. On a stringed instrument. [A Psalm] of David.} Hear, O God, my cry; attend unto my prayer. 1 Hear my cry, O God; listen to my prayer.
2 From the end of the earth will I call unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: thou wilt lead me on to a rock which is too high for me. 2 From the ends of the earth I call to you, I call as my heart grows faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
3 For thou hast been a refuge for me, a strong tower from before the enemy. 3 For you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the foe.
4 I will sojourn in thy tent for ever; I will take refuge in the covert of thy wings. Selah. 4 I long to dwell in your tent forever and take refuge in the shelter of your wings. "Selah"
5 For thou, O God, hast heard my vows; thou hast given [me] the inheritance of those that fear thy name. 5 For you have heard my vows, O God; you have given me the heritage of those who fear your name.
6 Thou wilt add days to the days of the king: his years shall be as many generations. 6 Increase the days of the king's life, his years for many generations.
7 He shall abide before God for ever: bestow loving-kindness and truth, that they may preserve him. 7 May he be enthroned in God's presence forever; appoint your love and faithfulness to protect him.
8 So will I sing forth thy name for ever, performing my vows from day to day. 8 Then will I ever sing praise to your name and fulfill my vows day after day.
