Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 A Prayer of David. Hear, O Jehovah, righteousness, attend my cry, Give ear [to] my prayer, without lips of deceit. 1 Hear, O LORD, my righteous plea; listen to my cry. Give ear to my prayer-- it does not rise from deceitful lips.
2 From before thee my judgment doth go out; Thine eyes do see uprightly. 2 May my vindication come from you; may your eyes see what is right.
3 Thou hast proved my heart, Thou hast inspected by night, Thou hast tried me, Thou findest nothing; My thoughts pass not over my mouth. 3 Though you probe my heart and examine me at night, though you test me, you will find nothing; I have resolved that my mouth will not sin.
4 As to doings of man, Through a word of Thy lips I have observed The paths of a destroyer; 4 As for the deeds of men-- by the word of your lips I have kept myself from the ways of the violent.
5 To uphold my goings in Thy paths, My steps have not slidden. 5 My steps have held to your paths; my feet have not slipped.
6 I -- I called Thee, for Thou dost answer me, O God, incline Thine ear to me, hear my speech. 6 I call on you, O God, for you will answer me; give ear to me and hear my prayer.
7 Separate wonderfully Thy kindness, O Saviour of the confiding, By Thy right hand, from withstanders. 7 Show the wonder of your great love, you who save by your right hand those who take refuge in you from their foes.
8 Keep me as the apple, the daughter of the eye; In shadow of Thy wings thou dost hide me. 8 Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings
9 From the face of the wicked who spoiled me. Mine enemies in soul go round against me. 9 from the wicked who assail me, from my mortal enemies who surround me.
10 Their fat they have closed up, Their mouths have spoken with pride: 10 They close up their callous hearts, and their mouths speak with arrogance.
11 `Our steps now have compassed [him];' Their eyes they set to turn aside in the land. 11 They have tracked me down, they now surround me, with eyes alert, to throw me to the ground.
12 His likeness as a lion desirous to tear, As a young lion dwelling in secret places. 12 They are like a lion hungry for prey, like a great lion crouching in cover.
13 Arise, O Jehovah, go before his face, Cause him to bend. Deliver my soul from the wicked, Thy sword, 13 Rise up, O LORD, confront them, bring them down; rescue me from the wicked by your sword.
14 From men, Thy hand, O Jehovah, From men of the world, their portion [is] in life, And [with] Thy hidden things Thou fillest their belly, They are satisfied [with] sons; And have left their abundance to their sucklings. 14 O LORD, by your hand save me from such men, from men of this world whose reward is in this life. You still the hunger of those you cherish; their sons have plenty, and they store up wealth for their children.
15 I -- in righteousness, I see Thy face; I am satisfied, in awaking, [with] Thy form! 15 And I--in righteousness I will see your face; when I awake, I will be satisfied with seeing your likeness.
