Psalm 16

A miktama of David.

Keep me safe,c my God,

for in you I take refuge.d

I say to the Lord, “You are my Lord;e

apart from you I have no good thing.”f

I say of the holy peopleg who are in the land,h

“They are the noble ones in whom is all my delight.”

Those who run after other godsi will sufferj more and more.

I will not pour out libations of blood to such gods

or take up their namesk on my lips.

Lord, you alone are my portionl and my cup;m

you make my lotn secure.

The boundary lineso have fallen for me in pleasant places;

surely I have a delightful inheritance.p

I will praise the Lord, who counsels me;q

even at nightr my heart instructs me.

I keep my eyes always on the Lord.

With him at my right hand,s I will not be shaken.t

Therefore my heart is gladu and my tongue rejoices;

my body also will rest secure,v

10 because you will not abandon me to the realm of the dead,w

nor will you let your faithfulb onex see decay.y

11 You make known to me the path of life;z

you will fill me with joy in your presence,a

with eternal pleasuresb at your right hand.c

The Vine and the Branches

15 “I ams the true vine,t and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit,u while every branch that does bear fruitv he prunesa so that it will be even more fruitful. You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you.w Remain in me, as I also remain in you.x No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.

“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit;y apart from me you can do nothing. If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned.z If you remain in mea and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.b This is to my Father’s glory,c that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.d

“As the Father has loved me,e so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. 10 If you keep my commands,f you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love. 11 I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete.g
