New International Reader's Version (NIRV) New International Version (NIV)
73 You made me and formed me with your own hands. Give me understanding so that I can learn your commands. 73 Your hands made me and formed me; give me understanding to learn your commands.
74 May those who have respect for you be filled with joy when they see me. I have put my hope in your word. 74 May those who fear you rejoice when they see me, for I have put my hope in your word.
75 Lord, I know that your laws are right. You were faithful to your promise when you made me suffer. 75 I know, O LORD, that your laws are righteous, and in faithfulness you have afflicted me.
76 May your faithful love comfort me as you have promised me. 76 May your unfailing love be my comfort, according to your promise to your servant.
77 Show me your tender love so that I can live. I take delight in your law. 77 Let your compassion come to me that I may live, for your law is my delight.
78 Proud people have treated me badly without any reason. May they be put to shame. I will spend time thinking about your rules. 78 May the arrogant be put to shame for wronging me without cause; but I will meditate on your precepts.
79 May those who have respect for you come to me. Then I can teach them your covenant laws. 79 May those who fear you turn to me, those who understand your statutes.
80 May my heart be without blame as I follow your orders. Then I won't be put to shame. 80 May my heart be blameless toward your decrees, that I may not be put to shame.
