Bible in Basic English (BBE) New International Version (NIV)
1 Happy is he who has forgiveness for his wrongdoing, and whose sin is covered. 1 Blessed is he whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered.
2 Happy is the man in whom the Lord sees no evil, and in whose spirit there is no deceit. 2 Blessed is the man whose sin the LORD does not count against him and in whose spirit is no deceit.

4 For the weight of your hand was on me day and night; my body became dry like the earth in summer. (Selah.) 4 For day and night your hand was heavy upon me; my strength was sapped as in the heat of summer. "Selah"
5 I made my wrongdoing clear to you, and did not keep back my sin. I said, I will put it all before the Lord; and you took away my wrongdoing and my sin. (Selah.) 5 Then I acknowledged my sin to you and did not cover up my iniquity. I said, "I will confess my transgressions to the LORD"-- and you forgave the guilt of my sin. "Selah"
6 For this cause let every saint make his prayer to you at a time when you are near: then the overflowing of the great waters will not overtake him. 6 Therefore let everyone who is godly pray to you while you may be found; surely when the mighty waters rise, they will not reach him.
7 You are my safe and secret place; you will keep me from trouble; you will put songs of salvation on the lips of those who are round me. (Selah.) 7 You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance. "Selah"
8 I will give you knowledge, teaching you the way to go; my eye will be your guide. 8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you.
9 Do not be like the horse or the ass, without sense; ... 9 Do not be like the horse or the mule, which have no understanding but must be controlled by bit and bridle or they will not come to you.
10 The sinner will be full of trouble; but mercy will be round the man who has faith in the Lord. 10 Many are the woes of the wicked, but the LORD's unfailing love surrounds the man who trusts in him.
11 Be glad in the Lord with joy, you upright men; give cries of joy, all you whose hearts are true. 11 Rejoice in the LORD and be glad, you righteous; sing, all you who are upright in heart!
