GOD'S WORD Translation (GW) New International Version (NIV)
1 To you, O LORD, I lift my soul. 1 To you, O LORD, I lift up my soul;
2 I trust you, O my God. Do not let me be put to shame. Do not let my enemies triumph 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 No one who waits for you will ever be put to shame, but all who are unfaithful will 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, O LORD, and teach me your paths. 4 Show me your ways, O LORD, teach me your paths;
5 Lead me in your truth and teach me because you are God, my savior. I wait all day long for you. 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 Remember, O LORD, your compassionate and merciful deeds. They have existed from eternity. 6 Remember, O LORD, your great mercy and love, for they are from of old.
7 Do not remember the sins of my youth or my rebellious ways. Remember me, O LORD, in keeping with your mercy and your goodness. 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 decent. That is why he teaches sinners the way they should live. 8 Good and upright is the LORD; therefore he instructs sinners in his ways.
9 He leads humble people to do what is right, and he teaches them his way. 9 He guides the humble in what is right and teaches them his way.
10 Every path of the LORD is [one of] mercy and truth for those who cling to his promise and written instructions. 10 All the ways of the LORD are loving and faithful for those who keep the demands of his covenant.
11 For the sake of your name, O LORD, remove my guilt, because it is great. 11 For the sake of your name, O LORD, forgive my iniquity, though it is great.
12 Who, then, is this person that fears the LORD? He is the one whom the LORD will teach which path to choose. 12 Who, then, is the man that fears the LORD? He will instruct him in the way chosen for him.
13 He will enjoy good things in life, and his descendants will inherit the land. 13 He will spend his days in prosperity, and his descendants will inherit the land.
14 The LORD advises those who fear him. He reveals to them the intent of his promise. 14 The LORD confides in those who fear him; he makes his covenant known to them.
15 My eyes are always on the LORD. He removes my feet from traps. 15 My eyes are ever on the LORD, for only he will release my feet from the snare.
16 Turn to me, and have pity on me. I am lonely and oppressed. 16 Turn to me and be gracious to me, for I am lonely and afflicted.
17 Relieve my troubled heart, and bring me out of my distress. 17 The troubles of my heart have multiplied; free me from my anguish.
18 Look at my misery and suffering, and forgive all my sins. 18 Look upon my affliction and my distress and take away all my sins.
19 See how my enemies have increased in number, how they have hated me with vicious hatred! 19 See how my enemies have increased and how fiercely they hate me!
20 Protect my life, and rescue me! Do not let me be put to shame. I have taken refuge in you. 20 Guard my life and rescue me; let me not be put to shame, for I take refuge in you.
21 Integrity and honesty will protect me because I wait for you. 21 May integrity and uprightness protect me, because my hope is in you.
22 Rescue Israel, O God, from all its troubles! 22 Redeem Israel, O God, from all their troubles!
