A Miktam of David.
3As for the saints in the land,
they are the noble, in whom is all my delight.
4Those who choose another god multiply their sorrows;
their libations of blood I will not pour out or take their names upon my lips.
5The LORD is my chosen portion and my cup;
thou holdest my lot.
6The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;
yea, I have a goodly heritage.
7I bless the LORD who gives me counsel;
in the night also my heart instructs me.
8I keep the LORD always before me;
because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.
9Therefore my heart is glad, and my soul rejoices;
my body also dwells secure.
10For thou dost not give me up to Sheol,
or let thy godly one see the Pit.
11Thou dost show me the path of life;
in thy presence there is fulness of joy,
in thy right hand are pleasures for evermore.
