New International Reader's Version (NIRV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Here are the words God has given me to say about the evil ways of anyone who sins. He doesn't have any respect for God. 1 An oracle is within my heart concerning the sinfulness of the wicked: There is no fear of God before his eyes.
2 He praises himself so much that he can't see his sin or hate it. 2 For in his own eyes he flatters himself too much to detect or hate his sin.
3 His mouth speaks words that are evil and false. He has stopped being wise. He has stopped doing good. 3 The words of his mouth are wicked and deceitful; he has ceased to be wise and to do good.
4 Even as he lies in bed he makes evil plans. He commits himself to a sinful way of life. He never says no to what is wrong. 4 Even on his bed he plots evil; he commits himself to a sinful course and does not reject what is wrong.
5 Lord, your love is as high as the heavens. Your faithful love reaches up to the skies. 5 Your love, O LORD, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies.
6 You are as holy as the mountains are high. You are as honest as the oceans are deep. Lord, you keep people and animals safe. 6 Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains, your justice like the great deep. O LORD, you preserve both man and beast.
7 How priceless your faithful love is! Important and ordinary people alike find safety in the shadow of your wings. 7 How priceless is your unfailing love! Both high and low among men find refuge in the shadow of your wings.
8 They eat well because there is more than enough in your house. You let them drink from your river that flows with good things. 8 They feast on the abundance of your house; you give them drink from your river of delights.
9 You have the fountain of life. We are filled with light because you give us light. 9 For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light.
10 Keep on loving those who know you. Keep on doing right to those whose hearts are honest. 10 Continue your love to those who know you, your righteousness to the upright in heart.
11 Don't let the feet of those who are proud step on me. Don't let the hands of those who are evil drive me away. 11 May the foot of the proud not come against me, nor the hand of the wicked drive me away.
12 See how those who do evil have fallen! They are thrown down. They aren't able to get up. 12 See how the evildoers lie fallen-- thrown down, not able to rise!
