Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 By David. Jehovah [is] my light and my salvation, Whom do I fear? Jehovah [is] the strength of my life, Of whom am I afraid? 1 The LORD is my light and my salvation-- whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life-- of whom shall I be afraid?
2 When evil doers come near to me to eat my flesh, My adversaries and mine enemies to me, They have stumbled and fallen. 2 When evil men advance against me to devour my flesh, when my enemies and my foes attack me, they will stumble and fall.
3 Though a host doth encamp against me, My heart doth not fear, Though war riseth up against me, In this I [am] confident. 3 Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then will I be confident.
4 One [thing] I asked of Jehovah -- it I seek. My dwelling in the house of Jehovah, All the days of my life, To look on the pleasantness of Jehovah, And to inquire in His temple. 4 One thing I ask of the LORD, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD and to seek him in his temple.
5 For He hideth me in a tabernacle in the day of evil, He hideth me in a secret place of His tent, On a rock he raiseth me up. 5 For in the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling; he will hide me in the shelter of his tabernacle and set me high upon a rock.
6 And now, lifted up is my head, Above my enemies -- my surrounders, And I sacrifice in His tent sacrifices of shouting, I sing, yea, I sing praise to Jehovah. 6 Then my head will be exalted above the enemies who surround me; at his tabernacle will I sacrifice with shouts of joy; I will sing and make music to the LORD.
7 Hear, O Jehovah, my voice -- I call, And favour me, and answer me. 7 Hear my voice when I call, O LORD; be merciful to me and answer me.
8 To Thee said my heart `They sought my face, Thy face, O Jehovah, I seek.' 8 My heart says of you, "Seek his face!" Your face, LORD, I will seek.
9 Hide not Thy face from me, Turn not aside in anger Thy servant, My help Thou hast been. Leave me not, nor forsake me, O God of my salvation. 9 Do not hide your face from me, do not turn your servant away in anger; you have been my helper. Do not reject me or forsake me, O God my Savior.
10 When my father and my mother Have forsaken me, then doth Jehovah gather me. 10 Though my father and mother forsake me, the LORD will receive me.
11 Shew me, O Jehovah, Thy way, And lead me in a path of uprightness, For the sake of my beholders. 11 Teach me your way, O LORD; lead me in a straight path because of my oppressors.
12 Give me not to the will of my adversaries, For risen against me have false witnesses, And they breathe out violence to me. 12 Do not turn me over to the desire of my foes, for false witnesses rise up against me, breathing out violence.
13 I had not believed to look on the goodness of Jehovah In the land of the living! 13 I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.
14 Look unto Jehovah -- be strong, And He doth strengthen thy heart, Yea, look unto Jehovah! 14 Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.
