Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
59 Thou hast seen the wrong done to me, O LORD; judge thou my cause. 59 You have seen, O LORD, the wrong done to me. Uphold my cause!
60 Thou hast seen all their vengeance, all their devices against me. 60 You have seen the depth of their vengeance, all their plots against me.
61 "Thou hast heard their taunts, O LORD, all their devices against me. 61 O LORD, you have heard their insults, all their plots against me--
62 The lips and thoughts of my assailants are against me all the day long. 62 what my enemies whisper and mutter against me all day long.
63 Behold their sitting and their rising; I am the burden of their songs. 63 Look at them! Sitting or standing, they mock me in their songs.
64 "Thou wilt requite them, O LORD, according to the work of their hands. 64 Pay them back what they deserve, O LORD, for what their hands have done.
65 Thou wilt give them dullness of heart; thy curse will be on them. 65 Put a veil over their hearts, and may your curse be on them!
66 Thou wilt pursue them in anger and destroy them from under thy heavens, O LORD." 66 Pursue them in anger and destroy them from under the heavens of the LORD.
