Lexham English Bible (LEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 To you, O Yahweh, I call. O my rock, do not be deaf to me. Or else, if you are silent to me, then I will become like those descending to [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 the voice of my supplications when I cry to you for help, when I lift up my hands toward your holy inner 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 Do not drag me away with [the] wicked or with [the] workers of evil, [who] speak of peace with their neighbors, while evil [is] in their heart. 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 Give to them according to their work, even according to the evil of their deeds. Give to them according to the work of their hands; repay them their rightful due. 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 Because they do not regard the works of Yahweh, nor the work of his hands, he will destroy them and not rebuild them. 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 [is] Yahweh, because he has heard the voice of my supplications. 6 Praise be to the LORD, for he has heard my cry for mercy.
7 Yahweh [is] my strength and my shield. My heart trusts him and I am helped. So my heart rejoices, and with my song I will give thanks 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 Yahweh [is] their strength, and he [is] the refuge for the salvation of his anointed one. 8 The LORD is the strength of his people, a fortress of salvation for his anointed one.
9 Save your people and bless your heritage. Shepherd them also and carry them always. 9 Save your people and bless your inheritance; be their shepherd and carry them forever.
