New International Reader's Version (NIRV) New International Version (NIV)
140 Your promises have proved to be true. I love them. 140 Your promises have been thoroughly tested, and your servant loves them.
141 I'm not important. People look down on me. But I don't forget to obey your rules. 141 Though I am lowly and despised, I do not forget your precepts.
142 You always do what is right. And your law is true. 142 Your righteousness is everlasting and your law is true.
143 I've had my share of trouble and suffering. But I take delight in your commands. 143 Trouble and distress have come upon me, but your commands are my delight.
144 Your covenant laws are always right. Help me to understand them. Then I will live. 144 Your statutes are forever right; give me understanding that I may live.
145 Lord, I call out to you with all my heart. Answer me, and I will obey your orders. 145 I call with all my heart; answer me, O LORD, and I will obey your decrees.
146 I call out to you. Save me, and I will keep your covenant laws. 146 I call out to you; save me and I will keep your statutes.
147 I get up before the sun rises. I cry out for help. I've put my hope in your word. 147 I rise before dawn and cry for help; I have put my hope in your word.
148 My eyes stay open all night long. I spend my time thinking about your promises. 148 My eyes stay open through the watches of the night, that I may meditate on your promises.
149 Listen to me, because you love me. Lord, keep me alive as you have promised. 149 Hear my voice in accordance with your love; preserve my life, O LORD, according to your laws.
150 Those who think up evil plans are near. They have wandered far away from your law. 150 Those who devise wicked schemes are near, but they are far from your law.
