Douay-Rheims (RHE) New International Version (NIV)
1 (118-1) Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the Lord. 1 Blessed are they whose ways are blameless, who walk according to the law of the LORD.
2 (118-2) Blessed are they that search his testimonies: that seek him with their whole heart. 2 Blessed are they who keep his statutes and seek him with all their heart.
3 (118-3) For they that work iniquity, have not walked in his ways. 3 They do nothing wrong; they walk in his ways.
4 (118-4) Thou hast commanded thy commandments to be kept most diligently. 4 You have laid down precepts that are to be fully obeyed.
5 (118-5) O! that my ways may be directed to keep thy justifications. 5 Oh, that my ways were steadfast in obeying your decrees!
6 (118-6) Then shall I not be confounded, when I shall look into all thy commandments. 6 Then I would not be put to shame when I consider all your commands.
7 (118-7) I will praise thee with uprightness of heart, when I shall have learned the judgments of thy justice. 7 I will praise you with an upright heart as I learn your righteous laws.
8 (118-8) I will keep thy justifications: O! do not thou utterly forsake me. 8 I will obey your decrees; do not utterly forsake me.
9 (118-9) By what doth a young man correct his way? by observing thy words. 9 How can a young man keep his way pure? By living according to your word.
10 (118-10) With my whole heart have I sought after thee: let me not stray from thy commandments. 10 I seek you with all my heart; do not let me stray from your commands.
11 (118-11) Thy words have I hidden in my heart, that I may not sin against thee. 11 I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.
12 (118-12) Blessed art thou, O Lord: teach me thy justifications. 12 Praise be to you, O LORD; teach me your decrees.
13 (118-13) With my lips I have pronounced all the judgments of thy mouth. 13 With my lips I recount all the laws that come from your mouth.
14 (118-14) I have been delighted in the way of thy testimonies, as in all riches. 14 I rejoice in following your statutes as one rejoices in great riches.
15 (118-15) I will meditate on thy commandments: and I will consider thy ways. 15 I meditate on your precepts and consider your ways.
16 (118-16) I will think of thy justifications: I will not forget thy words. 16 I delight in your decrees; I will not neglect your word.
17 (118-17) Give bountifully to thy servant, enliven me: and I shall keep thy words. 17 Do good to your servant, and I will live; I will obey your word.
18 (118-18) Open thou my eyes: and I will consider the wondrous things of thy law. 18 Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things in your law.
19 (118-19) I am a sojourner on the earth: hide not thy commandments from me. 19 I am a stranger on earth; do not hide your commands from me.
20 (118-20) My soul hath coveted to long for thy justifications, at all times. 20 My soul is consumed with longing for your laws at all times.
21 (118-21) Thou hast rebuked the proud: they are cursed who decline from thy commandments. 21 You rebuke the arrogant, who are cursed and who stray from your commands.
22 (118-22) Remove from me reproach and contempt: because I have sought after thy testimonies. 22 Remove from me scorn and contempt, for I keep your statutes.
23 (118-23) For princes sat, and spoke against me: but thy servant was employed in thy justifications. 23 Though rulers sit together and slander me, your servant will meditate on your decrees.
24 (118-24) For thy testimonies are my meditation: and thy justifications my counsel. 24 Your statutes are my delight; they are my counselors.
25 (118-25) My soul hath cleaved to the pavement: quicken thou me according to thy word. 25 I am laid low in the dust; preserve my life according to your word.
26 (118-26) I have declared my ways, and thou hast heard me: teach me thy justifications. 26 I recounted my ways and you answered me; teach me your decrees.
27 (118-27) Make me to understand the way of thy justifications: and I shall be exercised in thy wondrous works. 27 Let me understand the teaching of your precepts; then I will meditate on your wonders.
28 (118-28) My soul hath slumbered through heaviness: strengthen thou me in thy words. 28 My soul is weary with sorrow; strengthen me according to your word.
29 (118-29) Remove from me the way of iniquity: and out of thy law have mercy on me. 29 Keep me from deceitful ways; be gracious to me through your law.
30 (118-30) I have chosen the way of truth: thy judgments I have not forgotten. 30 I have chosen the way of truth; I have set my heart on your laws.
31 (118-31) I have stuck to thy testimonies, O Lord: put me not to shame. 31 I hold fast to your statutes, O LORD; do not let me be put to shame.
32 (118-32) I have run the way of thy commandments, when thou didst enlarge my heart. 32 I run in the path of your commands, for you have set my heart free.
33 (118-33) Set before me for a law the way of thy justifications, O Lord: and I will always seek after it. 33 Teach me, O LORD, to follow your decrees; then I will keep them to the end.
34 (118-34) Give me understanding, and I will search thy law; and I will keep it with my whole heart. 34 Give me understanding, and I will keep your law and obey it with all my heart.
35 (118-35) Lead me into the path of thy commandments; for this same I have desired. 35 Direct me in the path of your commands, for there I find delight.
36 (118-36) Incline my heart into thy testimonies and not to covetousness. 36 Turn my heart toward your statutes and not toward selfish gain.
37 (118-37) Turn away my eyes that they may not behold vanity: quicken me in thy way. 37 Turn my eyes away from worthless things; preserve my life according to your word.
38 (118-38) Establish thy word to thy servant, in thy fear. 38 Fulfill your promise to your servant, so that you may be feared.
39 (118-39) Turn away my reproach, which I have apprehended: for thy judgments are delightful. 39 Take away the disgrace I dread, for your laws are good.
40 (118-40) Behold I have longed after thy precepts: quicken me in thy justice. 40 How I long for your precepts! Preserve my life in your righteousness.
41 (118-41) Let thy mercy also come upon me, O Lord: thy salvation according to thy word. 41 May your unfailing love come to me, O LORD, your salvation according to your promise;
42 (118-42) So shall I answer them that reproach me in any thing; that I have trusted in thy words. 42 then I will answer the one who taunts me, for I trust in your word.
43 (118-43) And take not thou the word of truth utterly out of my mouth: for in thy words, I have hoped exceedingly. 43 Do not snatch the word of truth from my mouth, for I have put my hope in your laws.
44 (118-44) So shall I always keep thy law, for ever and ever. 44 I will always obey your law, for ever and ever.
45 (118-45) And I walked at large: because I have sought after thy commandments. 45 I will walk about in freedom, for I have sought out your precepts.
46 (118-46) And I spoke of thy testimonies before kings: and I was not ashamed. 46 I will speak of your statutes before kings and will not be put to shame,
47 (118-47) I meditated also on thy commandments, which I loved. 47 for I delight in your commands because I love them.
48 (118-48) And I lifted up my hands to thy commandments, which I loved: and I was exercised in thy justifications. 48 I lift up my hands to your commands, which I love, and I meditate on your decrees.
49 (118-49) Be thou mindful of thy word to thy servant, in which thou hast given me hope. 49 Remember your word to your servant, for you have given me hope.
50 (118-50) This hath comforted me in my humiliation: because thy word hath enlivened me. 50 My comfort in my suffering is this: Your promise preserves my life.
51 (118-51) The proud did iniquitously altogether: but I declined not from thy law. 51 The arrogant mock me without restraint, but I do not turn from your law.
52 (118-52) I remembered, O Lord, thy judgments of old: and I was comforted. 52 I remember your ancient laws, O LORD, and I find comfort in them.
53 (118-53) A fainting hath taken hold of me, because of the wicked that forsake thy law. 53 Indignation grips me because of the wicked, who have forsaken your law.
54 (118-54) Thy justifications were the subject of my song, in the place of my pilgrimage. 54 Your decrees are the theme of my song wherever I lodge.
55 (118-55) In the night I have remembered thy name, O Lord: and have kept thy law. 55 In the night I remember your name, O LORD, and I will keep your law.
56 (118-56) This happened to me: because I sought after thy justifications. 56 This has been my practice: I obey your precepts.
57 (118-57) O Lord, my portion, I have said, I would keep thy law. 57 You are my portion, O LORD; I have promised to obey your words.
58 (118-58) I entreated thy face with all my heart: have mercy on me according to thy word. 58 I have sought your face with all my heart; be gracious to me according to your promise.
59 (118-59) I have thought on my ways: and turned my feet unto thy testimonies. 59 I have considered my ways and have turned my steps to your statutes.
60 (118-60) I am ready, and am not troubled: that I may keep thy commandments. 60 I will hasten and not delay to obey your commands.
61 (118-61) The cords of the wicked have encompassed me: but I have not forgotten thy law. 61 Though the wicked bind me with ropes, I will not forget your law.
62 (118-62) I rose at midnight to give praise to thee; for the judgments of thy justification. 62 At midnight I rise to give you thanks for your righteous laws.
63 (118-63) I am a partaker with all them that fear thee, and that keep thy commandments. 63 I am a friend to all who fear you, to all who follow your precepts.
64 (118-64) The earth, O Lord, is full of thy mercy: teach me thy justifications. 64 The earth is filled with your love, O LORD; teach me your decrees.
65 (118-65) Thou hast done well with thy servant, O Lord, according to thy word. 65 Do good to your servant according to your word, O LORD.
66 (118-66) Teach me goodness and discipline and knowledge; for I have believed thy commandments. 66 Teach me knowledge and good judgment, for I believe in your commands.
67 (118-67) Before I was humbled I offended; therefore have I kept thy word. 67 Before I was afflicted I went astray, but now I obey your word.
68 (118-68) Thou art good; and in thy goodness teach me thy justifications. 68 You are good, and what you do is good; teach me your decrees.
69 (118-69) The iniquity of the proud hath been multiplied over me: but I will seek thy commandments with my whole heart. 69 Though the arrogant have smeared me with lies, I keep your precepts with all my heart.
70 (118-70) Their heart is curdled like milk: but I have meditated on thy law. 70 Their hearts are callous and unfeeling, but I delight in your law.
71 (118-71) It is good for me that thou hast humbled me, that I may learn thy justifications. 71 It was good for me to be afflicted so that I might learn your decrees.
72 (118-72) The law of thy mouth is good to me, above thousands of gold and silver. 72 The law from your mouth is more precious to me than thousands of pieces of silver and gold.
73 (118-73) Thy hands have made me and formed me: give me understanding, and I will learn thy commandments. 73 Your hands made me and formed me; give me understanding to learn your commands.
74 (118-74) They that fear thee shall see me, and shall be glad:because I have greatly hoped in thy words. 74 May those who fear you rejoice when they see me, for I have put my hope in your word.
75 (118-75) I know, O Lord, that thy judgments are equity: and in thy truth thou hast humbled me. 75 I know, O LORD, that your laws are righteous, and in faithfulness you have afflicted me.
76 (118-76) O! let thy mercy be for my comfort, according to thy word unto thy servant. 76 May your unfailing love be my comfort, according to your promise to your servant.
77 (118-77) Let thy tender mercies come unto me, and I shall live: for thy law is my meditation. 77 Let your compassion come to me that I may live, for your law is my delight.
78 (118-78) Let the proud be ashamed, because they have done unjustly towards me: but I will be employed in thy commandments. 78 May the arrogant be put to shame for wronging me without cause; but I will meditate on your precepts.
79 (118-79) Let them that fear thee turn to me: and they that know thy testimonies. 79 May those who fear you turn to me, those who understand your statutes.
80 (118-80) Let my heart be undefiled in thy justifications, that I may not be confounded. 80 May my heart be blameless toward your decrees, that I may not be put to shame.
81 (118-81) My soul hath fainted after thy salvation: and in thy word I have very much hoped. 81 My soul faints with longing for your salvation, but I have put my hope in your word.
82 (118-82) My eyes have failed for thy word, saying: When wilt thou comfort me? 82 My eyes fail, looking for your promise; I say, "When will you comfort me?"
83 (118-83) For I am become like a bottle in the frost: I have not forgotten thy justifications. 83 Though I am like a wineskin in the smoke, I do not forget your decrees.
84 (118-84) How many are the days of thy servant: when wilt thou execute judgment on them that persecute me? 84 How long must your servant wait? When will you punish my persecutors?
85 (118-85) The wicked have told me fables: but not as thy law. 85 The arrogant dig pitfalls for me, contrary to your law.
86 (118-86) All thy statutes are truth: they have persecuted me unjustly, do thou help me. 86 All your commands are trustworthy; help me, for men persecute me without cause.
87 (118-87) They had almost made an end of me upon earth: but I have not forsaken thy commandments. 87 They almost wiped me from the earth, but I have not forsaken your precepts.
88 (118-88) Quicken thou me according to thy mercy: and I shall keep the testimonies of thy mouth. 88 Preserve my life according to your love, and I will obey the statutes of your mouth.
89 (118-89) For ever, O Lord, thy word standeth firm in heaven. 89 Your word, O LORD, is eternal; it stands firm in the heavens.
90 (118-90) Thy truth unto all generations: thou hast founded the earth, and it continueth. 90 Your faithfulness continues through all generations; you established the earth, and it endures.
91 (118-91) By thy ordinance the day goeth on: for all things serve thee. 91 Your laws endure to this day, for all things serve you.
92 (118-92) Unless thy law had been my meditation, I had then perhaps perished in my abjection. 92 If your law had not been my delight, I would have perished in my affliction.
93 (118-93) Thy justifications I will never forget: for by them thou hast given me life. 93 I will never forget your precepts, for by them you have preserved my life.
94 (118-94) I am thine, save thou me: for I have sought thy justifications. 94 Save me, for I am yours; I have sought out your precepts.
95 (118-95) The wicked have waited for me to destroy me: but I have understood thy testimonies. 95 The wicked are waiting to destroy me, but I will ponder your statutes.
96 (118-96) I have seen an end of all perfection: thy commandment is exceeding broad. 96 To all perfection I see a limit; but your commands are boundless.
97 (118-97) O how have I loved thy law, O Lord! it is my meditation all the day. 97 Oh, how I love your law! I meditate on it all day long.
98 (118-98) Through thy commandment, thou hast made me wiser than my enemies: for it is ever with me. 98 Your commands make me wiser than my enemies, for they are ever with me.
99 (118-99) I have understood more than all my teachers: because thy testimonies are my meditation. 99 I have more insight than all my teachers, for I meditate on your statutes.
100 (118-100) I have had understanding above ancients: because I have sought thy commandments. 100 I have more understanding than the elders, for I obey your precepts.
101 (118-101) I have restrained my feet from every evil way: that I may keep thy words. 101 I have kept my feet from every evil path so that I might obey your word.
102 (118-102) I have not declined from thy judgments, because thou hast set me a law. 102 I have not departed from your laws, for you yourself have taught me.
103 (118-103) How sweet are thy words to my palate! more than honey to my mouth. 103 How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!
104 (118-104) By thy commandments I have had understanding: therefore have I hated every way of iniquity. 104 I gain understanding from your precepts; therefore I hate every wrong path.
105 (118-105) Thy word is a lamp to my feet, and a light to my paths. 105 Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.
106 (118-106) I have sworn and am determined to keep the judgments of thy justice. 106 I have taken an oath and confirmed it, that I will follow your righteous laws.
107 (118-107) I have been humbled, O Lord, exceedingly: quicken thou me according to thy word. 107 I have suffered much; preserve my life, O LORD, according to your word.
108 (118-108) The free offerings of my mouth make acceptable, O Lord: and teach me thy judgments. 108 Accept, O LORD, the willing praise of my mouth, and teach me your laws.
109 (118-109) My soul is continually in my hands: and I have not forgotten thy law. 109 Though I constantly take my life in my hands, I will not forget your law.
110 (118-110) Sinners have laid a snare for me: but I have not erred from thy precepts. 110 The wicked have set a snare for me, but I have not strayed from your precepts.
111 (118-111) I have purchased thy testimonies for an inheritance for ever: because they are the joy of my heart. 111 Your statutes are my heritage forever; they are the joy of my heart.
112 (118-112) I have inclined my heart to do thy justifications for ever, for the reward. 112 My heart is set on keeping your decrees to the very end.
113 (118-113) I have hated the unjust: and have loved thy law. 113 I hate double-minded men, but I love your law.
114 (118-114) Thou art my helper and my protector: and in thy word I have greatly hoped. 114 You are my refuge and my shield; I have put my hope in your word.
115 (118-115) Depart from me, ye malignant: and I will search the commandments of my God. 115 Away from me, you evildoers, that I may keep the commands of my God!
116 (118-116) Uphold me according to thy word, and I shall live: and let me not be confounded in my expectation. 116 Sustain me according to your promise, and I will live; do not let my hopes be dashed.
117 (118-117) Help me, and I shall be saved: and I will meditate always on thy justifications. 117 Uphold me, and I will be delivered; I will always have regard for your decrees.
118 (118-118) Thou hast despised all them that fall off from thy judgments; for their thought is unjust. 118 You reject all who stray from your decrees, for their deceitfulness is in vain.
119 (118-119) I have accounted all the sinners of the earth prevaricators: therefore have I loved thy testimonies. 119 All the wicked of the earth you discard like dross; therefore I love your statutes.
120 (118-120) Pierce thou my flesh with thy fear: for I am afraid of thy judgments. 120 My flesh trembles in fear of you; I stand in awe of your laws.
121 (118-121) I have done judgment and justice: give me not up to them that slander me. 121 I have done what is righteous and just; do not leave me to my oppressors.
122 (118-122) Uphold thy servant unto good: let not the proud calumniate me. 122 Ensure your servant's well-being; let not the arrogant oppress me.
123 (118-123) My eyes have fainted after thy salvation: and for the word of thy justice. 123 My eyes fail, looking for your salvation, looking for your righteous promise.
124 (118-124) Deal with thy servant according to thy mercy: and teach me thy justifications. 124 Deal with your servant according to your love and teach me your decrees.
125 (118-125) I am thy servant: give me understanding that I may know thy testimonies. 125 I am your servant; give me discernment that I may understand your statutes.
126 (118-126) It is time, O Lord, to do: they have dissipated thy law. 126 It is time for you to act, O LORD; your law is being broken.
127 (118-127) Therefore have I loved thy commandments above gold and the topaz. 127 Because I love your commands more than gold, more than pure gold,
128 (118-128) Therefore was I directed to all thy commandments: I have hated all wicked ways. 128 and because I consider all your precepts right, I hate every wrong path.
129 (118-129) Thy testimonies are wonderful: therefore my soul hath sought them. 129 Your statutes are wonderful; therefore I obey them.
130 (118-130) The declaration of thy words giveth light: and giveth understanding to little ones. 130 The unfolding of your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple.
131 (118-131) I opened my mouth, and panted: because I longed for thy commandments. 131 I open my mouth and pant, longing for your commands.
132 (118-132) Look thou upon me, and have mercy on me according to the judgment of them that love thy name. 132 Turn to me and have mercy on me, as you always do to those who love your name.
133 (118-133) Direct my steps according to thy word: and let no iniquity have dominion over me. 133 Direct my footsteps according to your word; let no sin rule over me.
134 (118-134) Redeem me from the calumnies of men: that I may keep thy commandments. 134 Redeem me from the oppression of men, that I may obey your precepts.
135 (118-135) Make thy face to shine upon thy servant: and teach me thy justifications. 135 Make your face shine upon your servant and teach me your decrees.
136 (118-136) My eyes have sent forth springs of water: because they have not kept thy law. 136 Streams of tears flow from my eyes, for your law is not obeyed.
137 (118-137) Thou art just, O Lord: and thy judgment is right. 137 Righteous are you, O LORD, and your laws are right.
138 (118-138) Thou hast commanded justice thy testimonies: and thy truth exceedingly. 138 The statutes you have laid down are righteous; they are fully trustworthy.
139 (118-139) My zeal hath made me pine away: because my enemies forgot thy words. 139 My zeal wears me out, for my enemies ignore your words.
140 (118-140) Thy word is exceedingly refined: and thy servant hath loved it. 140 Your promises have been thoroughly tested, and your servant loves them.
141 (118-141) I am very young and despised; but I forget not thy justifications. 141 Though I am lowly and despised, I do not forget your precepts.
142 (118-142) Thy justice is justice for ever: and thy law is the truth. 142 Your righteousness is everlasting and your law is true.
143 (118-143) Trouble and anguish have found me: thy commandments are my meditation. 143 Trouble and distress have come upon me, but your commands are my delight.
144 (118-144) Thy testimonies are justice for ever: give me understanding, and I shall live. 144 Your statutes are forever right; give me understanding that I may live.
145 (118-145) I cried with my whole heart, hear me, O Lord: I will seek thy justifications. 145 I call with all my heart; answer me, O LORD, and I will obey your decrees.
146 (118-146) I cried unto thee, save me: that I may keep thy commandments. 146 I call out to you; save me and I will keep your statutes.
147 (118-147) I prevented the dawning of the day, and cried: because in thy words I very much hoped. 147 I rise before dawn and cry for help; I have put my hope in your word.
148 (118-148) My eyes to thee have prevented the morning: that I might meditate on thy words. 148 My eyes stay open through the watches of the night, that I may meditate on your promises.
149 (118-149) Hear thou my voice, O Lord, according to thy mercy: and quicken me according to thy judgment. 149 Hear my voice in accordance with your love; preserve my life, O LORD, according to your laws.
150 (118-150) They that persecute me have drawn nigh to iniquity; but they are gone far off from thy law. 150 Those who devise wicked schemes are near, but they are far from your law.
151 (118-151) Thou art near, O Lord: and all thy ways are truth. 151 Yet you are near, O LORD, and all your commands are true.
152 (118-152) I have known from the beginning concerning thy testimonies: that thou hast founded them for ever. 152 Long ago I learned from your statutes that you established them to last forever.
153 (118-153) See my humiliation and deliver me for I have not forgotten thy law. 153 Look upon my suffering and deliver me, for I have not forgotten your law.
154 (118-154) Judge my judgment and redeem me: quicken thou me for thy word’s sake. 154 Defend my cause and redeem me; preserve my life according to your promise.
155 (118-155) Salvation is far from sinners; because they have not sought thy justifications. 155 Salvation is far from the wicked, for they do not seek out your decrees.
156 (118-156) Many, O Lord, are thy mercies: quicken me according to thy judgment. 156 Your compassion is great, O LORD; preserve my life according to your laws.
157 (118-157) Many are they that persecute me and afflict me; but I have not declined from thy testimonies. 157 Many are the foes who persecute me, but I have not turned from your statutes.
158 (118-158) I beheld the transgressors, and pined away; because they kept not thy word. 158 I look on the faithless with loathing, for they do not obey your word.
159 (118-159) Behold I have loved thy commandments, O Lord; quicken me thou in thy mercy. 159 See how I love your precepts; preserve my life, O LORD, according to your love.
160 (118-160) The beginning of thy words is truth: all the judgments of thy justice are for ever. 160 All your words are true; all your righteous laws are eternal.
161 (118-161) Princes have persecuted me without cause: and my heart hath been in awe of thy words. 161 Rulers persecute me without cause, but my heart trembles at your word.
162 (118-162) I will rejoice at thy words, as one that hath found great spoil. 162 I rejoice in your promise like one who finds great spoil.
