Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) New International Version (NIV)
1 By David: ADONAI, I am calling to you; my Rock, don't be deaf to my cry. For if you answer me with silence, I will be like those who fall in a pit. 1 To you I call, O LORD my Rock; do not turn a deaf ear to me. For if you remain silent, I will be like those who have gone down to the pit.
2 Hear the sound of my prayers when I cry to you, when I lift my hands toward your holy sanctuary. 2 Hear my cry for mercy as I call to you for help, as I lift up my hands toward your Most Holy Place.
3 Don't drag me off with the wicked, with those whose deeds are evil; they speak words of peace to their fellowmen, but evil is in their hearts. 3 Do not drag me away with the wicked, with those who do evil, who speak cordially with their neighbors but harbor malice in their hearts.
4 Pay them back for their deeds, as befits their evil acts; repay them for what they have done, give them what they deserve. 4 Repay them for their deeds and for their evil work; repay them for what their hands have done and bring back upon them what they deserve.
5 For they don't understand the deeds of ADONAI or what he has done. He will break them down; he will not build them up. 5 Since they show no regard for the works of the LORD and what his hands have done, he will tear them down and never build them up again.
6 Blessed be ADONAI, for he heard my voice as I prayed for mercy. 6 Praise be to the LORD, for he has heard my cry for mercy.
7 ADONAI is my strength and shield; in him my heart trusted, and I have been helped. Therefore my heart is filled with joy, and I will sing praises to him. 7 The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to him in song.
8 ADONAI is strength for [his people], a stronghold of salvation to his anointed. 8 The LORD is the strength of his people, a fortress of salvation for his anointed one.
9 Save your people! Bless your heritage! Shepherd them, and carry them forever! 9 Save your people and bless your inheritance; be their shepherd and carry them forever.
