New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
17 All this has happened despite our loyalty to you. We have not violated your covenant. 17 All this happened to us, though we had not forgotten you or been false to your covenant.
18 Our hearts have not deserted you. We have not strayed from your path. 18 Our hearts had not turned back; our feet had not strayed from your path.
19 Yet you have crushed us in the desert. You have covered us with darkness and death. 19 But you crushed us and made us a haunt for jackals and covered us over with deep darkness.
20 If we had turned away from worshiping our God or spread our hands in prayer to foreign gods, 20 If we had forgotten the name of our God or spread out our hands to a foreign god,
21 God would surely have known it, for he knows the secrets of every heart. 21 would not God have discovered it, since he knows the secrets of the heart?
22 For your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep. 22 Yet for your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.
23 Wake up, O Lord! Why do you sleep? Get up! Do not reject us forever. 23 Awake, O Lord! Why do you sleep? Rouse yourself ! Do not reject us forever.
24 Why do you look the other way? Why do you ignore our suffering and oppression? 24 Why do you hide your face and forget our misery and oppression?
25 We collapse in the dust, lying face down in the dirt. 25 We are brought down to the dust; our bodies cling to the ground.
26 Rise up! Come and help us! Save us because of your unfailing love. 26 Rise up and help us; redeem us because of your unfailing love.
