New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
18 I can't even count them; they outnumber the grains of sand! And when I wake up in the morning, you are still with me! 18 Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand. When I awake, I am still with you.
19 O God, if only you would destroy the wicked! Get out of my life, you murderers! 19 If only you would slay the wicked, O God! Away from me, you bloodthirsty men!
20 They blaspheme you; your enemies take your name in vain. 20 They speak of you with evil intent; your adversaries misuse your name.
21 O LORD, shouldn't I hate those who hate you? Shouldn't I despise those who resist you? 21 Do I not hate those who hate you, O LORD, and abhor those who rise up against you?
22 Yes, I hate them with complete hatred, for your enemies are my enemies. 22 I have nothing but hatred for them; I count them my enemies.
23 Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my thoughts. 23 Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts.
24 Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life. 24 See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
