New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
140 Your promises have been thoroughly tested; that is why I love them so much. 140 Your promises have been thoroughly tested, and your servant loves them.
141 I am insignificant and despised, but I don't forget your commandments. 141 Though I am lowly and despised, I do not forget your precepts.
142 Your justice is eternal, and your law is perfectly true. 142 Your righteousness is everlasting and your law is true.
143 As pressure and stress bear down on me, I find joy in your commands. 143 Trouble and distress have come upon me, but your commands are my delight.
144 Your decrees are always fair; help me to understand them, that I may live. 144 Your statutes are forever right; give me understanding that I may live.
145 I pray with all my heart; answer me, LORD! I will obey your principles. 145 I call with all my heart; answer me, O LORD, and I will obey your decrees.
146 I cry out to you; save me, that I may obey your decrees. 146 I call out to you; save me and I will keep your statutes.
147 I rise early, before the sun is up; I cry out for help and put my hope in your words. 147 I rise before dawn and cry for help; I have put my hope in your word.
148 I stay awake through the night, thinking about your promise. 148 My eyes stay open through the watches of the night, that I may meditate on your promises.
149 In your faithful love, O LORD, hear my cry; in your justice, save my life. 149 Hear my voice in accordance with your love; preserve my life, O LORD, according to your laws.
150 Those lawless people are coming near to attack me; they live far from your law. 150 Those who devise wicked schemes are near, but they are far from your law.
