NIRV 1 God, save me. My troubles are like a flood. I'm up to my neck in them. NIV 1 Save me, O God, for the waters have come up to my neck. NIRV 2 I'm sinking in deep mud. I have no firm place to stand. I am out in deep water. The waves roll over me. NIV 2 I sink in the miry depths, where there is no foothold. I have come into the deep waters; the floods engulf me. NIRV 3 I'm worn out from calling for help. My throat is very dry. My eyes grow tired looking for my God. NIV 3 I am worn out calling for help; my throat is parched. My eyes fail, looking for my God.

They force me to give back what I didn't steal. NIV 4 Those who hate me without reason outnumber the hairs of my head; many are my enemies without cause, those who seek to destroy me.

NIRV 6 Lord, you are the LORD who rules over all. May those who put their hope in you not be dishonored because of me. You are the God of Israel. May those who worship you not be put to shame because of me.

I'm an outsider to my own mother's sons. NIV 8 I am a foreigner to my own family, a stranger to my own mother’s children; NIRV 9 My great love for your house destroys me.

Save me, as you always do. NIV 13 But I pray to you, LORD, in the time of your favor; in your great love, O God, answer me with your sure salvation. NIRV 14 Save me from the trouble I'm in. It's like slippery mud. Don't let me sink in it. Save me from those who hate me. Save me from the deep water I'm in. NIV 14 Rescue me from the mire, do not let me sink; deliver me from those who hate me, from the deep waters. NIRV 15 Don't let the floods cover me. Don't let the deep water swallow me up.

You know all about my enemies. NIV 19 You know how I am scorned, disgraced and shamed; all my enemies are before you. NIRV 20 They have broken my heart by saying evil things about me. It has left me helpless. I looked for pity, but I didn't find any. I looked for someone to comfort me, but I didn't find anyone. NIV 20 Scorn has broken my heart and has left me helpless; I looked for sympathy, but there was none, for comforters, but I found none. NIRV 21 They put bitter spices in my food. They gave me vinegar when I was thirsty. NIV 21 They put gall in my food and gave me vinegar for my thirst. NIRV 22 Let their feast be a trap and a snare. Let my enemies get what's coming to them.

NIRV 33 The LORD hears those who are in need. He doesn't forget his people in prison. NIV 33 The LORD hears the needy and does not despise his captive people. NIRV 34 Let heaven and earth praise him.
