Psa 16:1 A Miktam of David. Preserve me, O God, for in you I take refuge. 16:2 I say to the LORD, “You are my Lord; I have no good apart from you.” 16:3 As for the saints in the land, they are the excellent ones, in whom is all my delight. 16:4 The sorrows of those who run after another god shall multiply; their drink offerings of blood I will not pour out or take their names on my lips. 16:5 The LORD is my chosen portion and my cup; you hold my lot. 16:6 The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance. 16:7 I bless the LORD who gives me counsel; in the night also my heart instructs me. 16:8 I have set the LORD always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken. 16:9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my whole being rejoices; my flesh also dwells secure. 16:10 For you will not abandon my soul to Sheol, or let your holy one see corruption. 16:11 You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
