Psalm 16

Psalm 16


A Miktam of David.q

Protect me, God, for I take refuge in you.r

IE said to the Lord, “You are my Lord;

I have nothing good besides you.”F,s

As for the holy people who are in the land,t

they are the noble ones.

All my delight is in them.

The sorrows of those who take another god

for themselves will multiply;

I will not pour out their drink offerings of blood,

and I will not speak their names with my lips.u

Lord, you are my portionG

and my cup of blessing;

you hold my future.v

The boundary lines have fallen for me

in pleasant places;

indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance.w

I will bless the Lord who counsels mex

even at night when my thoughts trouble me.H,y

I always let the Lord guide me.I

Because he is at my right hand,

I will not be shaken.z

Therefore my heart is glad

and my whole being rejoices;

my body also rests securely.aa

10 For you will not abandon me to Sheol;ab

you will not allow your faithful one to see decay.ac

11 You reveal the path of life to me;

in your presence is abundant joy;ad

at your right hand are eternal pleasures.ae
