Bible in Basic English (BBE) New International Version (NIV)
1 Will you for ever put me out of your memory, O Lord? will your face for ever be turned away from me? 1 How long, O LORD? Will you forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me?
2 How long is my soul to be in doubt, with sorrow in my heart all the day? how long will he who is against me be given power over me? 2 How long must I wrestle with my thoughts and every day have sorrow in my heart? How long will my enemy triumph over me?
3 Let my voice come before you, and give me an answer, O Lord my God; let your light be shining on me, so that the sleep of death may not overtake me; 3 Look on me and answer, O LORD my God. Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death;
4 And he who is against me may not say, I have overcome him; and those who are troubling me may not be glad when I am moved. 4 my enemy will say, "I have overcome him," and my foes will rejoice when I fall.
5 But I have had faith in your mercy; my heart will be glad in your salvation. 5 But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation.
6 I will make a song to the Lord, because he has given me my reward. 6 I will sing to the LORD, for he has been good to me.
