New International Reader's Version (NIRV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Lord, I worship you. 1 To you, O LORD, I lift up my soul;
2 My God, I trust in you. Don't let me be put to shame. Don't let my enemies win the battle 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 Those who put their hope in you will never be put to shame. But those who can't be trusted will be put to shame. They have no excuse. 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 Lord, show me your ways. Teach me how to follow you. 4 Show me your ways, O LORD, teach me your paths;
5 Guide me in your truth. Teach me. You are God my Savior. 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 great mercy and love. You have shown them to your people for a long time. 6 Remember, O LORD, your great mercy and love, for they are from of old.
7 Don't remember the sins I committed when I was young. Don't remember how often I refused to obey you. Remember me because you love me. Lord, you are good. 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 honest and good. He teaches sinners to walk in his ways. 8 Good and upright is the LORD; therefore he instructs sinners in his ways.
9 He shows those who aren't proud how to do what is right. He teaches them his ways. 9 He guides the humble in what is right and teaches them his way.
10 All of the LORD's ways are loving and faithful for those who obey what his covenant commands. 10 All the ways of the LORD are loving and faithful for those who keep the demands of his covenant.
11 Lord, be true to your name. Forgive my sin, even though it is great. 11 For the sake of your name, O LORD, forgive my iniquity, though it is great.
12 Who is the man who has respect for the Lord? God will teach him the way he has chosen for him. 12 Who, then, is the man that fears the LORD? He will instruct him in the way chosen for him.
13 Things will always go well for him. His children will be given the land. 13 He will spend his days in prosperity, and his descendants will inherit the land.
14 The LORD shares his plans with those who have respect for 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 always look to the Lord. He alone can set my feet free from the trap. 15 My eyes are ever on the LORD, for only he will release my feet from the snare.
16 Turn to me and show me your favor. I am lonely and hurting. 16 Turn to me and be gracious to me, for I am lonely and afflicted.
17 The troubles of my heart have increased. Set me free from my great pain. 17 The troubles of my heart have multiplied; free me from my anguish.
18 Look at how I'm hurting! See how much I suffer! Take away all of my sins. 18 Look upon my affliction and my distress and take away all my sins.
19 Look at how many enemies I have! See how terrible their hatred is for me! 19 See how my enemies have increased and how fiercely they hate me!
20 Guard my life. Save me. Don't let me be put to shame. I go to you for safety. 20 Guard my life and rescue me; let me not be put to shame, for I take refuge in you.
21 May my honest and good life keep me safe. I have put my hope in you. 21 May integrity and uprightness protect me, because my hope is in you.
22 God, set Israel free from all of their troubles! 22 Redeem Israel, O God, from all their troubles!
