Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
1 To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments; according to The Sheminith. A Psalm of David. O LORD, rebuke me not in thy anger, nor chasten me in thy wrath. 1 O LORD, do not rebuke me in your anger or discipline me in your wrath.
2 Be gracious to me, O LORD, for I am languishing; O LORD, heal me, for my bones are troubled. 2 Be merciful to me, LORD, for I am faint; O LORD, heal me, for my bones are in agony.
3 My soul also is sorely troubled. But thou, O LORD--how long? 3 My soul is in anguish. How long, O LORD, how long?
4 Turn, O LORD, save my life; deliver me for the sake of thy steadfast love. 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 Sheol who can give thee praise? 5 No one remembers you when he is dead. Who praises you from the grave ?
6 I am weary with my moaning; every night I flood my bed with tears; I drench my couch with my weeping. 6 I am worn out from groaning; all night long I flood my bed with weeping and drench my couch with tears.
7 My eye wastes away because of grief, it grows weak because of all my foes. 7 My eyes grow weak with sorrow; they fail because of all my foes.
8 Depart from me, all you workers of evil; for the LORD has heard the sound of my weeping. 8 Away from me, all you who do evil, for the LORD has heard my weeping.
9 The LORD has heard my supplication; the LORD accepts my prayer. 9 The LORD has heard my cry for mercy; the LORD accepts my prayer.
10 All my enemies shall be ashamed and sorely troubled; they shall turn back, and be put to shame in a moment. 10 All my enemies will be ashamed and dismayed; they will turn back in sudden disgrace.
