New Revised Standard (NRS) New International Version (NIV)
1 Be gracious to me, O God, for people trample on me; all day long foes oppress me; 1 Be merciful to me, O God, for men hotly pursue me; all day long they press their attack.
2 my enemies trample on me all day long, for many fight against me. O Most High, 2 My slanderers pursue me all day long; many are attacking me in their pride.
3 when I am afraid, I put my trust in you. 3 When I am afraid, I will trust in you.
4 In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I am not afraid; what can flesh do to me? 4 In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I will not be afraid. What can mortal man do to me?
5 All day long they seek to injure my cause; all their thoughts are against me for evil. 5 All day long they twist my words; they are always plotting to harm me.
6 They stir up strife, they lurk, they watch my steps. As they hoped to have my life, 6 They conspire, they lurk, they watch my steps, eager to take my life.
7 so repay them for their crime; in wrath cast down the peoples, O God! 7 On no account let them escape; in your anger, O God, bring down the nations.
8 You have kept count of my tossings; put my tears in your bottle. Are they not in your record? 8 Record my lament; list my tears on your scroll-- are they not in your record?
9 Then my enemies will retreat in the day when I call. This I know, that God is for me. 9 Then my enemies will turn back when I call for help. By this I will know that God is for me.
10 In God, whose word I praise, in the Lord, whose word I praise, 10 In God, whose word I praise, in the LORD, whose word I praise--
11 in God I trust; I am not afraid. What can a mere mortal do to me? 11 in God I trust; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?
12 My vows to you I must perform, O God; I will render thank offerings to you. 12 I am under vows to you, O God; I will present my thank offerings to you.
13 For you have delivered my soul from death, and my feet from falling, so that I may walk before God in the light of life. 13 For you have delivered me from death and my feet from stumbling, that I may walk before God in the light of life.
