New International Version
Though you have made me see troubles, many and bitter, you will restore my life again; from the depths of the earth you will again bring me up.
King James Bible
Thou, which hast shewed me great and sore troubles, shalt quicken me again, and shalt bring me up again from the depths of the earth.
Darby Bible Translation
Thou, who hast shewn us many and sore troubles, wilt revive us again, and wilt bring us up again from the depths of the earth;
World English Bible
You, who have shown us many and bitter troubles, you will let me live. You will bring us up again from the depths of the earth.
Young's Literal Translation
Because Thou hast showed me many and sad distresses, Thou turnest back -- Thou revivest me, And from the depths of the earth, Thou turnest back -- Thou bringest me up.
Psalm 71:20 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Thou, which hast showed me great and sore troubles - Multiplied straits and difficulties. And thou hast only showed them.
Hadst thou permitted them to have fallen upon me with all their own energy and natural consequences, they would have destroyed me. As it was, I was nearly buried under them.
Shalt quicken me again - Shalt revive me - put new life in me. This has been applied to the passion of our Lord, and his resurrection; for it is added, Thou: -
Shalt bring me up again from the depths of the earth - Death shall not prey upon my body; thy Holy One can see no corruption. As applicable to David, it might mean his being almost overwhelmed with afflictions; and his deliverance was like a life from the dead.

You can produce a draught at any time, by heating the air until it ascends, and then the cold air rushes in to supply its place. And so we can always be filled with the Holy Spirit by providing a vacuum. This breath is dependent upon exhausting the previous breath before you can inhale a fresh one. And so we must empty our hearts of the last breath …
Rev. A. B. Simpson—Days of Heaven Upon Earth
Of the Day of Eternity and of the Straitnesses of this Life
The righteous person may have many troubles, but the LORD delivers him from them all;
You have shown your people desperate times; you have given us wine that makes us stagger.
Then we will not turn away from you; revive us, and we will call on your name.
Will you not revive us again, that your people may rejoice in you?
For great is your love toward me; you have delivered me from the depths, from the realm of the dead.
I am laid low in the dust; preserve my life according to your word.
Turn my eyes away from worthless things; preserve my life according to your word.
