New International Version
1 To you, Lord, I call;
you are my Rock,
do not turn a deaf ear(A) to me.
For if you remain silent,(B)
I will be like those who go down to the pit.(C)
2 Hear my cry for mercy(D)
as I call to you for help,
as I lift up my hands(E)
toward your Most Holy Place.(F)
3 Do not drag me away with the wicked,
with those who do evil,
who speak cordially with their neighbors
but harbor malice in their hearts.(G)
4 Repay them for their deeds
and for their evil work;
repay them for what their hands have done(H)
and bring back on them what they deserve.(I)
5 Because they have no regard for the deeds of the Lord
and what his hands have done,(J)
he will tear them down
and never build them up again.
6 Praise be to the Lord,(K)
for he has heard my cry for mercy.(L)
7 The Lord is my strength(M) and my shield;
my heart trusts(N) in him, and he helps me.
My heart leaps for joy,(O)
and with my song I praise him.(P)
A psalm of David.
3 The voice(AB) of the Lord is over the waters;
the God of glory(AC) thunders,(AD)
the Lord thunders over the mighty waters.(AE)
4 The voice of the Lord is powerful;(AF)
the voice of the Lord is majestic.
5 The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars;
the Lord breaks in pieces the cedars of Lebanon.(AG)
6 He makes Lebanon leap(AH) like a calf,
Sirion[b](AI) like a young wild ox.(AJ)
7 The voice of the Lord strikes
with flashes of lightning.(AK)
8 The voice of the Lord shakes the desert;
the Lord shakes the Desert of Kadesh.(AL)
9 The voice of the Lord twists the oaks[c](AM)
and strips the forests bare.
And in his temple all cry, “Glory!”(AN)
