Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
13 Oh that thou wouldest hide me in Sheol, that thou wouldest conceal me until thy wrath be past, that thou wouldest appoint me a set time, and remember me! 13 "If only you would hide me in the grave and conceal me till your anger has passed! If only you would set me a time and then remember me!
14 If a man die, shall he live again? All the days of my service I would wait, till my release should come. 14 If a man dies, will he live again? All the days of my hard service I will wait for my renewal to come.
15 Thou wouldest call, and I would answer thee; thou wouldest long for the work of thy hands. 15 You will call and I will answer you; you will long for the creature your hands have made.
16 For then thou wouldest number my steps, thou wouldest not keep watch over my sin; 16 Surely then you will count my steps but not keep track of my sin.
17 my transgression would be sealed up in a bag, and thou wouldest cover over my iniquity. 17 My offenses will be sealed up in a bag; you will cover over my sin.
