Bible in Basic English (BBE) New International Version (NIV)
1 To you, O Lord, my soul is lifted up. 1 To you, O LORD, I lift up my soul;
2 O my God, I have put my faith in you, let me not be shamed; let not my haters be glorying over me. 2 in you I trust, O my God. Do not let me be put to shame, nor let my enemies triumph over me.
3 Let no servant of yours be put to shame; may those be shamed who are false without cause. 3 No one whose hope is in you will ever be put to shame, but they will be put to shame who are treacherous without excuse.
4 Make your steps clear to me, O Lord; give me knowledge of your ways. 4 Show me your ways, O LORD, teach me your paths;
5 Be my guide and teacher in the true way; for you are the God of my salvation; I am waiting for your word all the day. 5 guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long.
6 O Lord, keep in mind your pity and your mercies; for they have been from the earliest times. 6 Remember, O LORD, your great mercy and love, for they are from of old.
7 Do not keep in mind my sins when I was young, or my wrongdoing: let your memory of me be full of mercy, O Lord, because of your righteousness. 7 Remember not the sins of my youth and my rebellious ways; according to your love remember me, for you are good, O LORD.
8 Good and upright is the Lord: so he will be the teacher of sinners in the way. 8 Good and upright is the LORD; therefore he instructs sinners in his ways.
9 He will be an upright guide to the poor in spirit: he will make his way clear to them. 9 He guides the humble in what is right and teaches them his way.
10 All the ways of the Lord are mercy and good faith for those who keep his agreement and his witness. 10 All the ways of the LORD are loving and faithful for those who keep the demands of his covenant.
11 Because of your name, O Lord, let me have forgiveness for my sin, which is very great. 11 For the sake of your name, O LORD, forgive my iniquity, though it is great.
12 If a man has the fear of the Lord, the Lord will be his teacher in the way of his pleasure. 12 Who, then, is the man that fears the LORD? He will instruct him in the way chosen for him.
13 His soul will be full of good things, and his seed will have the earth for its heritage. 13 He will spend his days in prosperity, and his descendants will inherit the land.
14 The secret of the Lord is with those in whose hearts is the fear of him; he will make his agreement clear to them. 14 The LORD confides in those who fear him; he makes his covenant known to them.
15 My eyes are turned to the Lord at all times; for he will take my feet out of the net. 15 My eyes are ever on the LORD, for only he will release my feet from the snare.
16 Be turned to me, and have mercy on me; for I am troubled and have no helper. 16 Turn to me and be gracious to me, for I am lonely and afflicted.
17 The troubles of my heart are increased: O take me out of my sorrows. 17 The troubles of my heart have multiplied; free me from my anguish.
18 Give thought to my grief and my pain; and take away all my sins. 18 Look upon my affliction and my distress and take away all my sins.
19 See how those who are against me are increased, for bitter is their hate of me. 19 See how my enemies have increased and how fiercely they hate me!
20 O keep my soul, and take me out of danger: let me not be shamed, for I have put my faith in you. 20 Guard my life and rescue me; let me not be put to shame, for I take refuge in you.
21 For my clean and upright ways keep me safe, because my hope is in you. 21 May integrity and uprightness protect me, because my hope is in you.
22 Give Israel salvation, O God, out of all his troubles. 22 Redeem Israel, O God, from all their troubles!
