Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 The song of degrees. Israel say now; Oft they have fought against me from my youth. (Let Israel say now; they have often fought against me from my youth.) 1 They have greatly oppressed me from my youth-- let Israel say--
2 Oft they [have] fought against me from my youth; and soothly they might not to me (Yea, they have often fought against me from my youth; but truly they could never overcome me.) 2 they have greatly oppressed me from my youth, but they have not gained the victory over me.
3 Sinners forged on my back; they made long their wickedness. (The sinners scourged my back; they made their furrows deep and long in me.) 3 Plowmen have plowed my back and made their furrows long.
4 The Lord is just, (he) shall beat (together) the nolls of sinners; (But the Lord is just, and he shall free me from the bonds of the wicked;) 4 But the LORD is righteous; he has cut me free from the cords of the wicked.
5 all that hate Zion be they shamed, and turned aback. (let all who hate Zion be put to shame, and be turned, or driven, back.) 5 May all who hate Zion be turned back in shame.
6 Be they made as the hay of housetops; that dried up, before that it be drawn up. (Be they made like the grass on the rooftops; it dried up, before that it could be pulled up.) 6 May they be like grass on the roof, which withers before it can grow;
7 Of which hay he that shall reap, shall not fill his hand; and he that shall gather handfuls, shall not fill his bosom. (Of which grass he who shall reap, shall not get a handful; and he who shall gather handfuls, shall not get an armful.) 7 with it the reaper cannot fill his hands, nor the one who gathers fill his arms.
8 And they that passed forth said not, The blessing of the Lord be on you; we blessed you in the name of the Lord. (And so they who pass by, shall never say, The blessing of the Lord be upon you; we bless you in the name of the Lord.) 8 May those who pass by not say, "The blessing of the LORD be upon you; we bless you in the name of the LORD."
