New International Reader's Version (NIRV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Praise the Lord. Blessed is the one who has respect for the Lord. He finds great delight when he obeys God's commands. 1 Praise the LORD. Blessed is the man who fears the LORD, who finds great delight in his commands.
2 His children will be powerful in the land. Because he is honest, his children will be blessed. 2 His children will be mighty in the land; the generation of the upright will be blessed.
3 His family will have wealth and riches. He will always be blessed for doing what is right. 3 Wealth and riches are in his house, and his righteousness endures forever.
4 Even in the darkness light shines on honest people. It shines on those who are kind and tender and godly. 4 Even in darkness light dawns for the upright, for the gracious and compassionate and righteous man.
5 Good things will come to those who are willing to lend freely. Good things will come to those who are fair in everything they do. 5 Good will come to him who is generous and lends freely, who conducts his affairs with justice.
6 They will always be secure. Those who do what is right will be remembered forever. 6 Surely he will never be shaken; a righteous man will be remembered forever.
7 They aren't afraid when bad news comes. They stand firm because they trust in the Lord. 7 He will have no fear of bad news; his heart is steadfast, trusting in the LORD.
8 Their hearts are secure. They aren't afraid. In the end they will see their enemies destroyed. 8 His heart is secure, he will have no fear; in the end he will look in triumph on his foes.
9 They have spread their gifts around to poor people. Their good works continue forever. They will be powerful and honored. 9 He has scattered abroad his gifts to the poor, his righteousness endures forever; his horn will be lifted high in honor.
10 Evil people will see it and be upset. They will grind their teeth and become weaker and weaker. What evil people long to do can't succeed. 10 The wicked man will see and be vexed, he will gnash his teeth and waste away; the longings of the wicked will come to nothing.
