Good News Translation (GNT) New International Version (NIV)
140 How certain your promise is! How I love it! 140 Your promises have been thoroughly tested, and your servant loves them.
141 I am unimportant and despised, but I do not neglect your teachings. 141 Though I am lowly and despised, I do not forget your precepts.
142 Your righteousness will last forever, and your law is always true. 142 Your righteousness is everlasting and your law is true.
143 I am filled with trouble and anxiety, but your commandments bring me joy. 143 Trouble and distress have come upon me, but your commands are my delight.
144 Your instructions are always just; give me understanding, and I shall live. 144 Your statutes are forever right; give me understanding that I may live.
145 With all my heart I call to you; answer me, Lord, and I will obey your commands! 145 I call with all my heart; answer me, O LORD, and I will obey your decrees.
146 I call to you; save me, and I will keep your laws. 146 I call out to you; save me and I will keep your statutes.
147 Before sunrise I call to you for help; I place my hope in your promise. 147 I rise before dawn and cry for help; I have put my hope in your word.
148 All night long I lie awake, to meditate on your instructions. 148 My eyes stay open through the watches of the night, that I may meditate on your promises.
149 Because your love is constant, hear me, O Lord; show your mercy, and preserve my life! 149 Hear my voice in accordance with your love; preserve my life, O LORD, according to your laws.
150 My cruel persecutors are coming closer, people who never keep your law. 150 Those who devise wicked schemes are near, but they are far from your law.
