Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 To the Overseer, on stringed instruments. -- By David. Hear, O God, my loud cry, attend to my prayer. 1 Hear my cry, O God; listen to my prayer.
2 From the end of the land unto Thee I call, In the feebleness of my heart, Into a rock higher than I Thou dost lead me. 2 From the ends of the earth I call to you, I call as my heart grows faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
3 For Thou hast been a refuge for me, A tower of strength because of the enemy. 3 For you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the foe.
4 I sojourn in Thy tent to the ages, I trust in the secret place of Thy wings. Selah. 4 I long to dwell in your tent forever and take refuge in the shelter of your wings. "Selah"
5 For Thou, O God, hast hearkened to my vows, Thou hast appointed the inheritance Of those fearing Thy name. 5 For you have heard my vows, O God; you have given me the heritage of those who fear your name.
6 Days to the days of the king Thou addest, His years as generation and generation. 6 Increase the days of the king's life, his years for many generations.
7 He dwelleth to the age before God, Kindness and truth appoint -- they keep him. 7 May he be enthroned in God's presence forever; appoint your love and faithfulness to protect him.
8 So do I praise Thy name for ever, When I pay my vows day by day! 8 Then will I ever sing praise to your name and fulfill my vows day after day.
