King James Version (KJV) New International Version (NIV)
1 O LORD, rebuke me not in thine anger, neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure. 1 O LORD, do not rebuke me in your anger or discipline me in your wrath.
2 Have mercy upon me, O LORD; for I am weak: O LORD, heal me; for my bones are vexed . 2 Be merciful to me, LORD, for I am faint; O LORD, heal me, for my bones are in agony.
3 My soul is also sore vexed : but thou, O LORD, how long? 3 My soul is in anguish. How long, O LORD, how long?
4 Return , O LORD, deliver my soul: oh save me for thy mercies' sake. 4 Turn, O LORD, and deliver me; save me because of your unfailing love.
5 For in death there is no remembrance of thee: in the grave who shall give thee thanks ? 5 No one remembers you when he is dead. Who praises you from the grave ?
6 I am weary with my groaning; all the night make I my bed to swim ; I water my couch with my tears. 6 I am worn out from groaning; all night long I flood my bed with weeping and drench my couch with tears.
7 Mine eye is consumed because of grief; it waxeth old because of all mine enemies . 7 My eyes grow weak with sorrow; they fail because of all my foes.
8 Depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity; for the LORD hath heard the voice of my weeping. 8 Away from me, all you who do evil, for the LORD has heard my weeping.
9 The LORD hath heard my supplication; the LORD will receive my prayer. 9 The LORD has heard my cry for mercy; the LORD accepts my prayer.
10 Let all mine enemies be ashamed and sore vexed : let them return and be ashamed suddenly. 10 All my enemies will be ashamed and dismayed; they will turn back in sudden disgrace.
