New King James Version (NKJV) New International Version (NIV)
1 A Psalm of David. To You I will cry, O Lord my Rock: Do not be silent to me, Lest, if You are silent to me, I become like those who go down 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, When I lift up 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 Do not take me away with the wicked And with the workers of iniquity, Who speak peace to their neighbors, 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 Give them according to their deeds, And according to the wickedness of their endeavors; Give them according to the work of their hands; Render to 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 Because they do not regard the works of the Lord, Nor the operation of His hands, He shall destroy them And 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 the Lord, Because He has heard the voice of my supplications! 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 in Him, and I am helped; Therefore my heart greatly rejoices, And with my song I will praise 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 The Lord is their strength, And He is the saving refuge of His anointed. 8 The LORD is the strength of his people, a fortress of salvation for his anointed one.
9 Save Your people, And bless Your inheritance; Shepherd them also, And bear them up forever. 9 Save your people and bless your inheritance; be their shepherd and carry them forever.
