Psalm 16

Michtam of David.

1. Preserve me, O God:

for in thee do I put my trust.

2. O my soul, thou hast said unto the Lord,

Thou art my Lord: my goodness extendeth not to thee;

3. but to the saints that are in the earth,

and to the excellent, in whom is all my delight.

4. Their sorrows shall be multiplied that hasten after another god:

their drink offerings of blood will I not offer,

nor take up their names into my lips.

5. The Lord is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup:

thou maintainest my lot.

6. The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places;

yea, I have a goodly heritage.

7. I will bless the Lord, who hath given me counsel:

my reins also instruct me in the night seasons.

8. I have set the Lord always before me:

because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.

9. Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth:

my flesh also shall rest in hope.

10 .For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell;

neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.

11. Thou wilt shew me the path of life:

in thy presence is fulness of joy;

at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
