KJV 1 Give ear to my prayer, O God; and hide not thyself from my supplication. NIV 1 Listen to my prayer, O God, do not ignore my plea; KJV 2 Attend unto me, and hear me: I mourn in my complaint, and make a noise ; NIV 2 hear me and answer me. My thoughts trouble me and I am distraught KJV 3 Because of the voice of the enemy , because of the oppression of the wicked: for they cast iniquity upon me, and in wrath they hate me. NIV 3 at the voice of the enemy, at the stares of the wicked; for they bring down suffering upon me and revile me in their anger. KJV 4 My heart is sore pained within me: and the terrors of death are fallen upon me. NIV 4 My heart is in anguish within me; the terrors of death assail me. KJV 5 Fearfulness and trembling are come upon me, and horror hath overwhelmed me. NIV 5 Fear and trembling have beset me; horror has overwhelmed me. KJV 6 And I said , Oh that I had wings like a dove! for then would I fly away , and be at rest . NIV 6 I said, "Oh, that I had the wings of a dove! I would fly away and be at rest-- KJV 7 Lo, then would I wander far off , and remain in the wilderness. Selah. NIV 7 I would flee far away and stay in the desert; "Selah" KJV 8 I would hasten my escape from the windy storm and tempest.

KJV 10 Day and night they go about it upon the walls thereof: mischief also and sorrow are in the midst of it. NIV 10 Day and night they prowl about on its walls; malice and abuse are within it. KJV 11 Wickedness is in the midst thereof: deceit and guile depart not from her streets. NIV 11 Destructive forces are at work in the city; threats and lies never leave its streets. KJV 12 For it was not an enemy that reproached me; then I could have borne it: neither was it he that hated me that did magnify himself against me; then I would have hid myself from him: NIV 12 If an enemy were insulting me, I could endure it; if a foe were raising himself against me, I could hide from him. KJV 13 But it was thou, a man mine equal, my guide, and mine acquaintance . NIV 13 But it is you, a man like myself, my companion, my close friend, KJV 14 We took sweet counsel together, and walked unto the house of God in company. NIV 14 with whom I once enjoyed sweet fellowship as we walked with the throng at the house of God. KJV 15 Let death seize upon them, and let them go down quick into hell: for wickedness is in their dwellings, and among them. NIV 15 Let death take my enemies by surprise; let them go down alive to the grave, for evil finds lodging among them. KJV 16 As for me, I will call upon God; and the LORD shall save me. NIV 16 But I call to God, and the LORD saves me. KJV 17 Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray , and cry aloud : and he shall hear my voice. NIV 17 Evening, morning and noon I cry out in distress, and he hears my voice. KJV 18 He hath delivered my soul in peace from the battle that was against me: for there were many with me. NIV 18 He ransoms me unharmed from the battle waged against me, even though many oppose me. KJV 19 God shall hear , and afflict them, even he that abideth of old. Selah. Because they have no changes, therefore they fear not God. NIV 19 God, who is enthroned forever, will hear them and afflict them-- "Selah" men who never change their ways and have no fear of God. KJV 20 He hath put forth his hands against such as be at peace with him: he hath broken his covenant. NIV 20 My companion attacks his friends; he violates his covenant. KJV 21 The words of his mouth were smoother than butter, but war was in his heart: his words were softer than oil, yet were they drawn swords. NIV 21 His speech is smooth as butter, yet war is in his heart; his words are more soothing than oil, yet they are drawn swords. KJV 22 Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved . NIV 22 Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall.
