Lexham English Bible (LEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 I cry out with my voice to Yahweh; I implore favor with my voice to Yahweh. 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 declare 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. On 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 [my] right and see. There is no one looking out for me; there is no escape for 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 out to you, O Yahweh. 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 pursuers, for they are stronger than I. 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 encircle me, because 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.
