GOD'S WORD Translation (GW) New International Version (NIV)
1 O LORD, I call to you. O my rock, do not turn a deaf ear to me. If you remain silent, I will be like those who go into the 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 my prayer for mercy when I call to you for help, when I lift my hands toward your most holy place. 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 Do not drag me away with wicked people, with troublemakers who speak of peace with their neighbors but have evil 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 what they have done, for their evil deeds. Pay them back for what their hands have done, and 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 The LORD will tear them down and never build them up again, because they never consider what he has done or what his hands have made. 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 Thank the LORD! He has heard my prayer for mercy! 6 Praise be to the LORD, for he has heard my cry for mercy.
7 The LORD is my strength and my shield. My heart trusted him, so I received help. My heart is triumphant; I give thanks to him with my song. 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 The LORD is the strength of his people and a fortress for the victory of his Messiah. 8 The LORD is the strength of his people, a fortress of salvation for his anointed one.
9 Save your people, and bless those who belong to you. Be their shepherd, and carry them forever. 9 Save your people and bless your inheritance; be their shepherd and carry them forever.
