New International Reader's Version (NIRV) New International Version (NIV)
1 I will praise the Lord. Deep down inside me, I will praise him. I will praise him, because his name is holy. 1 Praise the LORD, O my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
2 I will praise the Lord. I won't forget anything he does for me. 2 Praise the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits--
3 He forgives all my sins. He heals all my sicknesses. 3 who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases,
4 He saves my life from going down into the grave. His faithful and tender love makes me feel like a king. 4 who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion,
5 He satisfies me with the good things I long for. Then I feel young and strong again, just like an eagle. 5 who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.
6 The LORD does what is right and fair for all who are beaten down. 6 The LORD works righteousness and justice for all the oppressed.
7 He told Moses all about his plans. He let the people of Israel see his mighty acts. 7 He made known his ways to Moses, his deeds to the people of Israel:
8 The LORD is tender and kind. He is gracious. He is slow to get angry. He is full of love. 8 The LORD is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love.
9 He won't keep bringing charges against us. He won't stay angry with us forever. 9 He will not always accuse, nor will he harbor his anger forever;
10 He doesn't punish us for our sins as much as we should be punished. He doesn't pay us back in keeping with the evil things we've done. 10 he does not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us according to our iniquities.
11 His love for those who have respect for him is as high as the heavens are above the earth. 11 For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him;
12 He has removed our lawless acts from us as far as the east is from the west. 12 as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.
13 A father is tender and kind to his children. In the same way, the LORD is tender and kind to those who have respect for him. 13 As a father has compassion on his children, so the LORD has compassion on those who fear him;
14 He knows what we are made of. He remembers that we are dust. 14 for he knows how we are formed, he remembers that we are dust.
15 People's lives are like grass. People grow like the flowers in the field. 15 As for man, his days are like grass, he flourishes like a flower of the field;
16 When the wind blows on them, they are gone. No one can tell that they had ever been there. 16 the wind blows over it and it is gone, and its place remembers it no more.
17 But the LORD's love for those who have respect for him lasts for ever and ever. Their children's children will know that he always does what is right. 17 But from everlasting to everlasting the LORD's love is with those who fear him, and his righteousness with their children's children--
18 He always loves those who keep his covenant. He always does what is right for those who remember to obey his commands. 18 with those who keep his covenant and remember to obey his precepts.
19 The LORD has set up his throne in heaven. His kingdom rules over all. 19 The LORD has established his throne in heaven, and his kingdom rules over all.
20 Praise the Lord, you angels of his. Praise him, you mighty ones who carry out his orders and obey his word. 20 Praise the LORD, you his angels, you mighty ones who do his bidding, who obey his word.
21 Praise the Lord, all you angels in heaven. Praise him, all you who serve him and do what he wants. 21 Praise the LORD, all his heavenly hosts, you his servants who do his will.
22 Let everything the LORD has made praise him everywhere in his kingdom. I will praise the Lord. 22 Praise the LORD, all his works everywhere in his dominion. Praise the LORD, O my soul.
