New International Reader's Version (NIRV) New International Version (NIV)
65 Lord, be good to me as you have promised. 65 Do good to your servant according to your word, O LORD.
66 Increase my knowledge and give me good sense, because I believe in your commands. 66 Teach me knowledge and good judgment, for I believe in your commands.
67 Before I went through suffering, I went down the wrong path. But now I obey your word. 67 Before I was afflicted I went astray, but now I obey your word.
68 You are good, and what you do is good. Teach me your orders. 68 You are good, and what you do is good; teach me your decrees.
69 Proud people have spread lies about me and have taken away my good name. But I follow your rules with all my heart. 69 Though the arrogant have smeared me with lies, I keep your precepts with all my heart.
70 Their hearts are hard and stubborn. They don't feel anything. But I take delight in your law. 70 Their hearts are callous and unfeeling, but I delight in your law.
71 It was good for me to suffer. That's what helped me to understand your orders. 71 It was good for me to be afflicted so that I might learn your decrees.
72 The law you gave is worth more to me than thousands of pieces of silver and gold. 72 The law from your mouth is more precious to me than thousands of pieces of silver and gold.
