Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 To the Overseer with Stringed Instruments. -- A Psalm of David. In my calling answer Thou me, O God of my righteousness. In adversity Thou gavest enlargement to me; Favour 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 Sons of men! till when [is] my glory for shame? Ye love a vain thing, ye seek 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 And know ye that Jehovah Hath separated a saintly one to Himself. Jehovah heareth in my calling to Him. 3 Know that the LORD has set apart the godly for himself; the LORD will hear when I call to him.
4 `Tremble ye, and do not sin;' Say ye [thus] in your heart on your bed, And be ye silent. Selah. 4 In your anger do not sin; when you are on your beds, search your hearts and be silent. "Selah"
5 Sacrifice ye sacrifices of righteousness, And trust ye unto Jehovah. 5 Offer right sacrifices and trust in the LORD.
6 Many are saying, `Who doth show us good?' Lift on us the light of Thy face, 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 given joy in my heart, From the time their corn and their wine Have been multiplied. 7 You have filled my heart with greater joy than when their grain and new wine abound.
8 In peace together I lie down and sleep, For Thou, O Jehovah, alone, In confidence dost cause me to dwell! 8 I will lie down and sleep in peace, for you alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety.
