International Standard Version
5 Because they do not understand the deeds of the Lord
or the work of his hands,
He will tear them down and never build them up.
6 Blessed be the Lord!
For he has heard the sound of my supplications.
7 The Lord is my strength and my shield;
my heart trusts in him,
and I received help.
My heart rejoices,
and I give thanks to him with my song.
New International Version
5 Because they have no regard for the deeds of the Lord
and what his hands have done,(A)
he will tear them down
and never build them up again.
6 Praise be to the Lord,(B)
for he has heard my cry for mercy.(C)
7 The Lord is my strength(D) and my shield;
my heart trusts(E) in him, and he helps me.
My heart leaps for joy,(F)
and with my song I praise him.(G)
