Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 By David. -- An Instruction. O the happiness of him whose transgression [is] forgiven, Whose sin is covered. 1 Blessed is he whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered.
2 O the happiness of a man, To whom Jehovah imputeth not iniquity, And in whose spirit there is no deceit. 2 Blessed is the man whose sin the LORD does not count against him and in whose spirit is no deceit.
3 When I have kept silence, become old have my bones, Through my roaring all the day. 3 When I kept silent, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long.
4 When by day and by night Thy hand is heavy upon me, My moisture hath been changed Into the droughts of summer. Selah. 4 For day and night your hand was heavy upon me; my strength was sapped as in the heat of summer. "Selah"
5 My sin I cause Thee to know, And mine iniquity I have not covered. I have said, `I confess concerning My transgressions to Jehovah,' And Thou -- Thou hast taken away, The iniquity of my sin. Selah. 5 Then I acknowledged my sin to you and did not cover up my iniquity. I said, "I will confess my transgressions to the LORD"-- and you forgave the guilt of my sin. "Selah"
6 For this doth every saintly one pray to Thee, As the time to find. Surely at an overflowing of many waters, Unto him they come not. 6 Therefore let everyone who is godly pray to you while you may be found; surely when the mighty waters rise, they will not reach him.
7 Thou [art] a hiding-place for me, From distress Thou dost keep me, [With] songs of deliverance dost compass me. Selah. 7 You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance. "Selah"
8 I cause thee to act wisely, And direct thee in the way that thou goest, I cause mine eye to take counsel concerning thee. 8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you.
9 Be ye not as a horse -- as a mule, Without understanding, With bridle and bit, its ornaments, to curb, Not to come near unto thee. 9 Do not be like the horse or the mule, which have no understanding but must be controlled by bit and bridle or they will not come to you.
10 Many [are] the pains of the wicked; As to him who is trusting in Jehovah, Kindness doth compass him. 10 Many are the woes of the wicked, but the LORD's unfailing love surrounds the man who trusts in him.
11 Be glad in Jehovah, and rejoice, ye righteous, And sing, all ye upright of heart! 11 Rejoice in the LORD and be glad, you righteous; sing, all you who are upright in heart!
