Psalm 16

The Hope of the Faithful, and the Messiah’s Victory

A aMichtam of David.

1 Preserve 1me, O God, for in You I put my trust.

2 O my soul, you have said to the Lord,

“You are my Lord,

bMy goodness is nothing apart from You.”

3 As for the saints who are on the earth,

“They are the excellent ones, in cwhom is all my delight.”

4 Their sorrows shall be multiplied who hasten after another god;

Their drink offerings of dblood I will not offer,

eNor take up their names on my lips.

5 O Lord, You are the portion of my inheritance and my cup;

You 2maintain my lot.

6 The lines have fallen to me in pleasant places;

Yes, I have a good inheritance.

7 I will bless the Lord who has given me counsel;

My 3heart also instructs me in the night seasons.

8 fI have set the Lord always before me;

Because He is at my right hand I shall not be moved.

9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoices;

My flesh also will 4rest in hope.

10 gFor You will not leave my soul in 5Sheol,

Nor will You allow Your Holy One to 6see corruption.

11 You will show me the hpath of life;

In Your presence is fullness of joy;

At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
