Emacs Lisp is a hacked down version of a dynamically scoped Lisp
dialect that is obsolete by several decades.

Common Lisp is an ANSI standard programming language with many quality
implementations, both free and proprietary. Many Lisp implementations
compile to native machine code, can produce stand-alone executables,
support multithreading, provide access to the underlying platform.

Emacs Lisp is a proramming language implementation designed to create
an extended environment around a text editor.

Take a look at what task you have in mind, and choose accordingly.
