1Of David. To you, LORD, I call; you are my Rock, do not turn a deaf ear to me. For if you remain silent, I will be like those who go down to the pit.1To you, O LORD, I call; my rock, be not deaf to me, lest, if you be silent to me, I become like those who go down to the pit.1A Psalm of David. To You, O LORD, I call; My rock, do not be deaf to me, For if You are silent to me, I will become like those who go down to the pit.1A Psalm of David. Unto thee will I cry, O LORD my rock; be not silent to me: lest, if thou be silent to me, I become like them that go down into the pit.1Davidic. LORD, I call to You; my rock, do not be deaf to me. If You remain silent to me, I will be like those going down to the Pit.
2Hear my cry for mercy as I call to you for help, as I lift up my hands toward your Most Holy Place.2Hear the voice of my pleas for mercy, when I cry to you for help, when I lift up my hands toward your most holy sanctuary.2Hear the voice of my supplications when I cry to You for help, When I lift up my hands toward Your holy sanctuary.2Hear the voice of my supplications, when I cry unto thee, when I lift up my hands toward thy holy oracle.2Listen to the sound of my pleading when I cry to You for help, when I lift up my hands toward Your holy sanctuary.
3Do not drag me away with the wicked, with those who do evil, who speak cordially with their neighbors but harbor malice in their hearts.3Do not drag me off with the wicked, with the workers of evil, who speak peace with their neighbors while evil is in their hearts.3Do not drag me away with the wicked And with those who work iniquity, Who speak peace with their neighbors, While evil is in their hearts.3Draw me not away with the wicked, and with the workers of iniquity, which speak peace to their neighbours, but mischief is in their hearts.3Do not drag me away with the wicked, with the evildoers, who speak in friendly ways with their neighbors while malice is in their hearts.
4Repay them for their deeds and for their evil work; repay them for what their hands have done and bring back on them what they deserve.4Give to them according to their work and according to the evil of their deeds; give to them according to the work of their hands; render them their due reward.4Requite them according to their work and according to the evil of their practices; Requite them according to the deeds of their hands; Repay them their recompense.4Give them according to their deeds, and according to the wickedness of their endeavours: give them after the work of their hands; render to them their desert.4Repay them according to what they have done-- according to the evil of their deeds. Repay them according to the work of their hands; give them back what they deserve.

5Because they have no regard for the deeds of the LORD and what his hands have done, he will tear them down and never build them up again.5Because they do not regard the works of the LORD or the work of his hands, he will tear them down and build them up no more.5Because they do not regard the works of the LORD Nor the deeds of His hands, He will tear them down and not build them up.5Because they regard not the works of the LORD, nor the operation of his hands, he shall destroy them, and not build them up.5Because they do not consider what the LORD has done or the work of His hands, He will tear them down and not rebuild them.
