GOD'S WORD Translation (GW) New International Version (NIV)
1 Blessed is the person whose disobedience is forgiven and whose sin is pardoned. 1 Blessed is he whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered.
2 Blessed is the person whom the LORD no longer accuses of sin and who has no deceitful thoughts. 2 Blessed is the man whose sin the LORD does not count against him and in whose spirit is no deceit.
3 When I kept silent [about my sins], my bones began to weaken because of my groaning all day long. 3 When I kept silent, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long.
4 Day and night your hand lay heavily on me. My strength shriveled in the summer heat. 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 sins known to you, and I did not cover up my guilt. I decided to confess them to you, O LORD. Then you forgave all my sins. 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 reason let all godly people pray to you when you may be found. Then raging floodwater will not reach them. 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 hiding place. You protect me from trouble. You surround me with joyous songs of salvation. Selah 7 You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance. "Selah"
8 [The LORD says,] "I will instruct you. I will teach you the way that you should go. I will advise you as my eyes watch over you. 8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you.
9 Don't be stubborn like a horse or mule. [They need] a bit and bridle in their mouth to restrain them, or they will not come near you." 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 Many heartaches await wicked people, but mercy surrounds those who trust 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 and find joy in the LORD, you righteous people. Sing with joy, all whose motives are decent. 11 Rejoice in the LORD and be glad, you righteous; sing, all you who are upright in heart!
