The Darby Translation (DBY) New International Version (NIV)
1 {To the chief Musician. On stringed instruments. A Psalm of David.} When I call, answer me, O God of my righteousness: in pressure thou hast enlarged me; be gracious unto me, and hear my prayer. 1 Answer me when I call to you, O my righteous God. Give me relief from my distress; be merciful to me and hear my prayer.
2 Ye sons of men, till when is my glory [to be put] to shame? [How long] will ye love vanity, will ye seek after a lie? Selah. 2 How long, O men, will you turn my glory into shame ? How long will you love delusions and seek false gods ? "Selah"
3 But know that Jehovah hath set apart the pious [man] for himself: Jehovah will hear when I call unto him. 3 Know that the LORD has set apart the godly for himself; the LORD will hear when I call to him.
4 Be moved with anger, and sin not; meditate in your own hearts upon your bed, and be still. Selah. 4 In your anger do not sin; when you are on your beds, search your hearts and be silent. "Selah"
5 Offer sacrifices of righteousness, and confide in Jehovah. 5 Offer right sacrifices and trust in the LORD.
6 Many say, Who shall cause us to see good? Lift up upon us the light of thy countenance, O Jehovah. 6 Many are asking, "Who can show us any good?" Let the light of your face shine upon us, O LORD.
7 Thou hast put joy in my heart, more than in the time that their corn and their new wine was in abundance. 7 You have filled my heart with greater joy than when their grain and new wine abound.
8 In peace will I both lay me down and sleep; for thou, Jehovah, alone makest me to dwell in safety. 8 I will lie down and sleep in peace, for you alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety.
