English Standard Version (ESV) New International Version (NIV)
1 With my voice I cry out to the LORD; with my voice I plead for mercy to the LORD. 1 I cry aloud to the LORD; I lift up my voice to the LORD for mercy.
2 I pour out my complaint before him; I tell my trouble before him. 2 I pour out my complaint before him; before him I tell my trouble.
3 When my spirit faints within me, you know my way! In the path where I walk they have hidden a trap for me. 3 When my spirit grows faint within me, it is you who know my way. In the path where I walk men have hidden a snare for me.
4 Look to the right and see: there is none who takes notice of me; no refuge remains to me; no one cares for my soul. 4 Look to my right and see; no one is concerned for me. I have no refuge; no one cares for my life.
5 I cry to you, O LORD; I say, "You are my refuge, my portion in the land of the living." 5 I cry to you, O LORD; I say, "You are my refuge, my portion in the land of the living."
6 Attend to my cry, for I am brought very low! Deliver me from my persecutors, for they are too strong for me! 6 Listen to my cry, for I am in desperate need; rescue me from those who pursue me, for they are too strong for me.
7 Bring me out of prison, that I may give thanks to your name! The righteous will surround me, for you will deal bountifully with me. 7 Set me free from my prison, that I may praise your name. Then the righteous will gather about me because of your goodness to me.
