New International Version
Therefore let all the faithful pray to you while you may be found; surely the rising of the mighty waters will not reach them.
King James Bible
For this shall every one that is godly pray unto thee in a time when thou mayest be found: surely in the floods of great waters they shall not come nigh unto him.
Darby Bible Translation
For this shall every one that is godly pray unto thee at a time when thou mayest be found: surely in the floods of great waters they will not reach him.
World English Bible
For this, let everyone who is godly pray to you in a time when you may be found. Surely when the great waters overflow, they shall not reach to him.
Young's Literal Translation
For this doth every saintly one pray to Thee, As the time to find. Surely at an overflowing of many waters, Unto him they come not.
Psalm 32:6 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
For this shall every one that is godly - Because thou art merciful; because thou hast shown mercy to all who have truly turned to thee, and believed in thee; every one who fears thee, and hears of this, shall pray unto thee in an acceptable time, when thou mayest be found; in the time of finding. When the heart is softened and the conscience alarmed, that is a time of finding. God is ever ready; men are not so. Who can pray with a hard heart and a dark mind? While you feel relentings, pray.
Surely in the floods - In violent trials, afflictions, and temptations; when the rains descend, the winds blow, and the floods beat against that godly man who prays and trusts in God; "they shall not come nigh him," so as to weaken his confidence or destroy his soul. His house is founded on a rock.

David's Sin in the Matter of Uriah.
He reached down from on high and took hold of me; he drew me out of deep waters.
For the director of music. Of the Sons of Korah. According to alamoth. A song. God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.
For the director of music. To the tune of "Lilies." Of David. Save me, O God, for the waters have come up to my neck.
But I pray to you, LORD, in the time of your favor; in your great love, O God, answer me with your sure salvation.
the flood would have engulfed us, the torrent would have swept over us,
the raging waters would have swept us away.
Reach down your hand from on high; deliver me and rescue me from the mighty waters, from the hands of foreigners
