Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 `The Erring One,' by David, that he sung to Jehovah concerning the words of Cush a Benjamite. O Jehovah, my God, in Thee I have trusted, Save me from all my pursuers, and deliver me. 1 O LORD my God, I take refuge in you; save and deliver me from all who pursue me,
2 Lest he tear as a lion my soul, Rending, and there is no deliverer. 2 or they will tear me like a lion and rip me to pieces with no one to rescue me.
3 O Jehovah, my God, if I have done this, If there is iniquity in my hands, 3 O LORD my God, if I have done this and there is guilt on my hands--
4 If I have done my well-wisher evil, And draw mine adversary without cause, 4 if I have done evil to him who is at peace with me or without cause have robbed my foe--
5 An enemy pursueth my soul, and overtaketh, And treadeth down to the earth my life, And my honour placeth in the dust. Selah. 5 then let my enemy pursue and overtake me; let him trample my life to the ground and make me sleep in the dust. "Selah"
6 Rise, O Jehovah, in Thine anger, Be lifted up at the wrath of mine adversaries, And awake Thou for me: Judgment Thou hast commanded: 6 Arise, O LORD, in your anger; rise up against the rage of my enemies. Awake, my God; decree justice.
7 And a company of peoples compass Thee, And over it on high turn Thou back, 7 Let the assembled peoples gather around you. Rule over them from on high;
8 Jehovah doth judge the peoples; Judge me, O Jehovah, According to my righteousness, And according to mine integrity on me, 8 let the LORD judge the peoples. Judge me, O LORD, according to my righteousness, according to my integrity, O Most High.
9 Let, I pray Thee be ended the evil of the wicked, And establish Thou the righteous, And a trier of hearts and reins is the righteous God. 9 O righteous God, who searches minds and hearts, bring to an end the violence of the wicked and make the righteous secure.
10 My shield [is] on God, Saviour of the upright in heart! 10 My shield is God Most High, who saves the upright in heart.
11 God [is] a righteous judge, And He is not angry at all times. 11 God is a righteous judge, a God who expresses his wrath every day.
12 If [one] turn not, His sword he sharpeneth, His bow he hath trodden -- He prepareth it, 12 If he does not relent, he will sharpen his sword; he will bend and string his bow.
13 Yea, for him He hath prepared Instruments of death, His arrows for burning pursuers He maketh. 13 He has prepared his deadly weapons; he makes ready his flaming arrows.
14 Lo, he travaileth [with] iniquity, And he hath conceived perverseness, And hath brought forth falsehood. 14 He who is pregnant with evil and conceives trouble gives birth to disillusionment.
15 A pit he hath prepared, and he diggeth it, And he falleth into a ditch he maketh. 15 He who digs a hole and scoops it out falls into the pit he has made.
16 Return doth his perverseness on his head, And on his crown his violence cometh down. 16 The trouble he causes recoils on himself; his violence comes down on his own head.
17 I thank Jehovah, According to His righteousness, And praise the name of Jehovah Most High! 17 I will give thanks to the LORD because of his righteousness and will sing praise to the name of the LORD Most High.
