New International Reader's Version (NIRV) New International Version (NIV)
33 Lord, teach me to follow your orders. Then I will obey them to the very end. 33 Teach me, O LORD, to follow your decrees; then I will keep them to the end.
34 Help me understand your law. Then I will follow it and obey it with all my heart. 34 Give me understanding, and I will keep your law and obey it with all my heart.
35 Teach me to live as you command, because that makes me very happy. 35 Direct me in the path of your commands, for there I find delight.
36 Make me want to follow your covenant laws instead of wanting to gain things only for myself. 36 Turn my heart toward your statutes and not toward selfish gain.
37 Turn my eyes away from things that are worthless. Keep me alive as you have promised. 37 Turn my eyes away from worthless things; preserve my life according to your word.
38 Keep your promise to me. Then other people will have respect for you. 38 Fulfill your promise to your servant, so that you may be feared.
39 Please don't let me be put to shame. Your laws are good. 39 Take away the disgrace I dread, for your laws are good.
40 I really want to follow your rules. Keep me alive, because you do what is right. 40 How I long for your precepts! Preserve my life in your righteousness.
