Psalm 25 CEB/NIV - Online Parallel Bible

Common English Bible (CEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 I offer my life to you, LORD. 1 To you, O LORD, I lift up my soul;
2 My God, I trust you. Please don't let me be put to shame! Don't let my enemies rejoice 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 For that matter, don't let anyone who hopes in you be put to shame; instead, let those who are treacherous without excuse be put to shame. 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 ways known to me, LORD; teach me your paths. 4 Show me your ways, O LORD, teach me your paths;
5 Lead me in your truth—teach it to me— because you are the God who saves me. I put my hope in you all day long. 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 LORD, remember your compassion and faithful love— they are forever! 6 Remember, O LORD, your great mercy and love, for they are from of old.
7 But don't remember the sins of my youth or my wrongdoing. Remember me only according to your faithful love for the sake of your goodness, LORD. 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 The LORD is good and does the right thing; he teaches sinners which way they should go. 8 Good and upright is the LORD; therefore he instructs sinners in his ways.
9 God guides the weak to justice, teaching them his way. 9 He guides the humble in what is right and teaches them his way.
10 All the LORD's paths are loving and faithful for those who keep his covenant and laws. 10 All the ways of the LORD are loving and faithful for those who keep the demands of his covenant.
11 Please, for the sake of your good name, LORD, forgive my sins, which are many! 11 For the sake of your name, O LORD, forgive my iniquity, though it is great.
12 Where are the ones who honor the LORD? God will teach them which path to take. 12 Who, then, is the man that fears the LORD? He will instruct him in the way chosen for him.
13 They will live a good life, and their descendants will possess the land. 13 He will spend his days in prosperity, and his descendants will inherit the land.
14 The LORD counsels those who honor him; he makes his covenant known to them. 14 The LORD confides in those who fear him; he makes his covenant known to them.
15 My eyes are always looking to the LORD because he will free my feet from the net. 15 My eyes are ever on the LORD, for only he will release my feet from the snare.
16 Turn to me, God, and have mercy on me because I'm alone and suffering. 16 Turn to me and be gracious to me, for I am lonely and afflicted.
17 My heart's troubles keep getting bigger— set me free from my distress! 17 The troubles of my heart have multiplied; free me from my anguish.
18 Look at my suffering and trouble— forgive all my sins! 18 Look upon my affliction and my distress and take away all my sins.
19 Look at how many enemies I have and how violently they hate me! 19 See how my enemies have increased and how fiercely they hate me!
20 Please protect my life! Deliver me! Don't let me be put to shame because I take refuge in you. 20 Guard my life and rescue me; let me not be put to shame, for I take refuge in you.
21 Let integrity and virtue guard me because I hope in you. 21 May integrity and uprightness protect me, because my hope is in you.
22 Please, God, save Israel from all its troubles! 22 Redeem Israel, O God, from all their troubles!
