|[A Miktam of David.]|
|Preserve me, O God, for in thee I take refuge.||Song of Triumph for the King. Psalm 16(v15)|
|I say to the LORD, |
"Thou art my Lord; I have no good apart from thee."
|As for the saints in the land, |
they are the noble, in whom is all my delight.
|Those who choose another god multiply their sorrows; |
their libations of blood I will not pour out or take their names upon my lips.
|The LORD is my chosen portion and my cup; |
thou holdest my lot.
|The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; |
yea, I have a goodly heritage.
|I bless the LORD who gives me counsel; |
in the night also my heart instructs me.
|I keep the LORD always before me; |
because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.
|Therefore my heart is glad, and my soul rejoices; |
my body also dwells secure.
|For thou dost not give me up to Sheol, |
or let thy godly one see the Pit.
|Thou dost show me the path of life; |
in thy presence there is fulness of joy,
in thy right hand are pleasures for evermore.
|<< | Psalms: 16 | >>|
