Psalm 16

Psalm 16

||Michtam of David.

Preserve me, O God: afor in thee do I put my trust.

O my soul, thou hast said unto the Lord, Thou art my Lord:

bMy goodness extendeth not to thee;

But to the saints that are in the earth,

And to the excellent, cin whom is all my delight.

Their sorrows shall be multiplied that ||hasten after ccanother god:

Their drink offerings of blood will I not offer,

dNor etake up their names into my lips.

The Lord is fthe portion of mine ginheritance and of my hcup:

Thou maintainest my ilot.

The ilines are fallen unto me in jpleasant places;

Yea, I have a goodly heritage.

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

My kreins also instruct me lin the night seasons.

mI have nset the Lord always before me:

Because ohe is at my right hand, pI shall not be moved.

Therefore my heart is glad, and qmy glory rejoiceth:

My flesh also shall rest in hope.

10  For thou wilt not leave my soul in rhell;

sNeither wilt thou suffer thine tHoly One to see ucorruption.

11  Thou wilt shew me wthe path of life:

In thy presence is xfulness of joy;

At thy right hand there are ypleasures for evermore.
