New International Reader's Version (NIRV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Blessed is the one whose lawless acts are forgiven. His sins have been taken away. 1 Blessed is he whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered.
2 Blessed is the man whose sin the LORD never counts against him. He doesn't want to cheat anyone. 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 sin, my body became weak because I groaned all day long. 3 When I kept silent, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long.
4 Day and night your heavy hand punished me. I became weaker and weaker as I do in the heat of summer. "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 admitted my sin to you. I didn't cover up the wrong I had done. I said, "I will admit my lawless acts to the Lord." And you forgave the guilt of my sin. "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 Let everyone who is godly pray to you while they can still look to you. When troubles come like a flood, they certainly won't reach those who are godly. 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 will keep me safe from trouble. You will surround me with songs sung by those who praise you because you save your people. "Selah" 7 You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance. "Selah"
8 I will guide you and teach you the way you should go. I will give you good advice 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 Don't be like the horse or the mule. They can't understand anything. They have to be controlled by bits and bridles. If they aren't, they won't come to 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 Sinful people have all kinds of trouble. But the LORD's faithful love is all around those who trust in him. 10 Many are the woes of the wicked, but the LORD's unfailing love surrounds the man who trusts in him.
11 Be glad because of what the LORD has done for you. Be joyful, you who do what is right! Sing, all of you whose hearts are honest! 11 Rejoice in the LORD and be glad, you righteous; sing, all you who are upright in heart!
