PSALM 16

Page history last edited by PBworks 12 years, 4 months ago

 

A miktam of David. [a]

 1 Keep me safe, O God,

       for in you I take refuge.

 2 I said to the LORD, "You are my Lord;

       apart from you I have no good thing."

 3 As for the saints who are in the land,

       they are the glorious ones in whom is all my delight. [b]

 4 The sorrows of those will increase

       who run after other gods.

       I will not pour out their libations of blood

       or take up their names on my lips.

 5 LORD, you have assigned me my portion and my cup;

       you have made my lot secure.

 6 The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;

       surely I have a delightful inheritance.

 7 I will praise the LORD, who counsels me;

       even at night my heart instructs me.

 8 I have set the LORD always before me.

       Because he is at my right hand,

       I will not be shaken.

 9 Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices;

       my body also will rest secure,

 10 because you will not abandon me to the grave, [c]

       nor will you let your Holy One [d] see decay.

 11 You have made [e] known to me the path of life;

       you will fill me with joy in your presence,

       with eternal pleasures at your right hand.
