Good News Translation (GNT) New International Version (NIV)
1 Hear my cry, O God; listen to my prayer! 1 Hear my cry, O God; listen to my prayer.
2 In despair and far from home I call to you! Take me to a safe refuge, 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 you are my protector, my strong defense against my enemies. 3 For you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the foe.
4 Let me live in your sanctuary all my life; let me find safety under your wings. 4 I long to dwell in your tent forever and take refuge in the shelter of your wings. "Selah"
5 You have heard my promises, O God, and you have given me what belongs to those who honor you. 5 For you have heard my vows, O God; you have given me the heritage of those who fear your name.
6 Add many years to the king's life; let him live on and on! 6 Increase the days of the king's life, his years for many generations.
7 May he rule forever in your presence, O God; protect him with your constant love and faithfulness. 7 May he be enthroned in God's presence forever; appoint your love and faithfulness to protect him.
8 So I will always sing praises to you, as I offer you daily what I have promised. 8 Then will I ever sing praise to your name and fulfill my vows day after day.
