Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) New International Version (NIV)
1 A prayer of David: Listen, ADONAI, and answer me, for I am poor and needy. 1 Hear, O LORD, and answer me, for I am poor and needy.
2 Preserve my life, for I am faithful; save your servant, who puts his trust in you because you are my God. 2 Guard my life, for I am devoted to you. You are my God; save your servant who trusts in you.
3 Take pity on me, Adonai, for I cry to you all day. 3 Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I call to you all day long.
4 Fill your servant's heart with joy, for to you, Adonai, I lift my heart. 4 Bring joy to your servant, for to you, O Lord, I lift up my soul.
5 Adonai, you are kind and forgiving, full of grace toward all who call on you. 5 You are forgiving and good, O Lord, abounding in love to all who call to you.
6 Listen, ADONAI, to my prayer; pay attention to my pleading cry. 6 Hear my prayer, O LORD; listen to my cry for mercy.
7 On the day of my trouble I am calling on you, for you will answer me. 7 In the day of my trouble I will call to you, for you will answer me.
8 There is none like you among the gods, Adonai; no deeds compare with yours. 8 Among the gods there is none like you, O Lord; no deeds can compare with yours.
9 All the nations you have made will come and bow before you, Adonai; they will honor your name. 9 All the nations you have made will come and worship before you, O Lord; they will bring glory to your name.
10 For you are great, and you do wonders; you alone are God. 10 For you are great and do marvelous deeds; you alone are God.
11 ADONAI, teach me your way, so that I can live by your truth; make me single-hearted, so that I can fear your name. 11 Teach me your way, O LORD, and I will walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name.
12 I will thank you, Adonai my God, with my whole heart; and I will glorify your name forever. 12 I will praise you, O Lord my God, with all my heart; I will glorify your name forever.
13 For your grace toward me is so great! You have rescued me from the lowest part of Sh'ol. 13 For great is your love toward me; you have delivered me from the depths of the grave.
14 God, arrogant men are rising against me, a gang of brutes is seeking my life, and to you they pay no attention. 14 The arrogant are attacking me, O God; a band of ruthless men seeks my life-- men without regard for you.
15 But you, Adonai, are a merciful, compassionate God, slow to anger and rich in grace and truth. 15 But you, O Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness.
16 Turn to me, and show me your favor; strengthen your servant, save your slave-girl's son. Give me a sign of your favor, so that those who hate me will see it and be ashamed, because you, ADONAI, have helped and comforted me. 16 Turn to me and have mercy on me; grant your strength to your servant and save the son of your maidservant.
17 17 Give me a sign of your goodness, that my enemies may see it and be put to shame, for you, O LORD, have helped me and comforted me.
