New International Reader's Version (NIRV) New International Version (NIV)
153 Look at how I'm suffering! Save me, because I haven't forgotten to obey your law. 153 Look upon my suffering and deliver me, for I have not forgotten your law.
154 Stand up for me and set me free. Keep me alive as you have promised. 154 Defend my cause and redeem me; preserve my life according to your promise.
155 Those who are evil are far from being saved. They don't want to obey your orders. 155 Salvation is far from the wicked, for they do not seek out your decrees.
156 Lord, you have deep concern for me. Keep me alive as you have promised. 156 Your compassion is great, O LORD; preserve my life according to your laws.
157 Many enemies attack me. But I haven't turned away from your covenant laws. 157 Many are the foes who persecute me, but I have not turned from your statutes.
158 I get very angry when I see people who aren't faithful to you. They don't obey your word. 158 I look on the faithless with loathing, for they do not obey your word.
159 See how I love your rules! Lord, keep me alive, because you love me. 159 See how I love your precepts; preserve my life, O LORD, according to your love.
160 All your words are true. All your laws are right. They last forever. 160 All your words are true; all your righteous laws are eternal.
