Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 To the Overseer, `Concerning the Inheritances.' -- A Psalm of David. My sayings hear, O Jehovah, Consider my meditation. 1 Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my sighing.
2 Be attentive to the voice of my cry, My king and my God, For unto Thee I pray habitually. 2 Listen to my cry for help, my King and my God, for to you I pray.
3 Jehovah, [at] morning Thou hearest my voice, [At] morning I set in array for Thee, And I look out. 3 In the morning, O LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation.
4 For not a God desiring wickedness [art] Thou, Evil inhabiteth Thee not. 4 You are not a God who takes pleasure in evil; with you the wicked cannot dwell.
5 The boastful station not themselves before Thine eyes: Thou hast hated all working iniquity. 5 The arrogant cannot stand in your presence; you hate all who do wrong.
6 Thou destroyest those speaking lies, A man of blood and deceit Jehovah doth abominate. 6 You destroy those who tell lies; bloodthirsty and deceitful men the LORD abhors.
7 And I, in the abundance of Thy kindness, I enter Thy house, I bow myself toward Thy holy temple in Thy fear. 7 But I, by your great mercy, will come into your house; in reverence will I bow down toward your holy temple.
8 O Jehovah, lead me in Thy righteousness, Because of those observing me, Make straight before me Thy way, 8 Lead me, O LORD, in your righteousness because of my enemies-- make straight your way before me.
9 For there is no stability in their mouth. Their heart [is] mischiefs, An open grave [is] their throat, Their tongue they make smooth. 9 Not a word from their mouth can be trusted; their heart is filled with destruction. Their throat is an open grave; with their tongue they speak deceit.
10 Declare them guilty, O God, Let them fall from their own counsels, In the abundance of their transgressions Drive them away, Because they have rebelled against Thee. 10 Declare them guilty, O God! Let their intrigues be their downfall. Banish them for their many sins, for they have rebelled against you.
11 And rejoice do all trusting in Thee, To the age they sing, and Thou coverest them over, And those loving Thy name exult in Thee. 11 But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may rejoice in you.
12 For Thou blessest the righteous, O Jehovah, As a buckler with favour dost compass him! 12 For surely, O LORD, you bless the righteous; you surround them with your favor as with a shield.
