New Century Version (NCV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Happy is the person whose sins are forgiven, whose wrongs are pardoned. 1 Blessed is he whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered.
2 Happy is the person whom the Lord does not consider guilty and in whom there is nothing false. 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 things to myself, I felt weak deep inside me. I moaned all day long. 3 When I kept silent, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long.
4 Day and night you punished me. My strength was gone as 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 Then I confessed my sins to you and didn't hide my guilt. I said, "I will confess my sins to the Lord," and you forgave my guilt.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, all who obey you should pray to you while they still can. When troubles rise like a flood, they 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 my troubles and fill me with 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 make you wise and show you where to go. I will guide you and 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 So don't be like a horse or donkey, that doesn't understand. They must be led with bits and reins, 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 Wicked people have many troubles, but the Lord's love surrounds those who trust him. 10 Many are the woes of the wicked, but the LORD's unfailing love surrounds the man who trusts in him.
11 Good people, rejoice and be happy in the Lord. Sing all you whose hearts are right. 11 Rejoice in the LORD and be glad, you righteous; sing, all you who are upright in heart!
