Common English Bible (CEB) New International Version (NIV)
161 Rulers oppress me without cause, but my heart honors what you've said. 161 Rulers persecute me without cause, but my heart trembles at your word.
162 I'm overjoyed at your word, like someone who finds great treasure. 162 I rejoice in your promise like one who finds great spoil.
163 I hate, I absolutely despise, what is false, but I'm in love with your Instruction. 163 I hate and abhor falsehood but I love your law.
164 I praise you seven times a day for your righteous rules. 164 Seven times a day I praise you for your righteous laws.
165 The people who love your Instruction enjoy peace—and lots of it. There's no stumbling for them! 165 Great peace have they who love your law, and nothing can make them stumble.
166 LORD, I wait for your saving help. I do what you've commanded. 166 I wait for your salvation, O LORD, and I follow your commands.
167 I keep your laws; I love them so much! 167 I obey your statutes, for I love them greatly.
168 I keep your precepts and your laws because all my ways are seen by you. 168 I obey your precepts and your statutes, for all my ways are known to you.
