I have no good apart from thee.”g
in whom is all my delight.
their libations of blood I will not pour out
or take their names upon my lips.
thou holdest my lot.
yea, I have a goodly heritage.
in the night also my heart instructs me.
because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.
my body also dwells secure.
or let thy godly one see the Pit.
in thy presence there is fulness of joy,
in thy right hand are pleasures for evermore.
Give ear to my prayer from lips free of deceit!
Let thy eyes see the right!
if thou testest me, thou wilt find no wickedness in me;
my mouth does not transgress.
I have avoided the ways of the violent.
my feet have not slipped.
incline thy ear to me, hear my words.
O savior of those who seek refuge
from their adversaries at thy right hand.
hide me in the shadow of thy wings,
my deadly enemies who surround me.
with their mouths they speak arrogantly.
as a young lion lurking in ambush.
Deliver my life from the wicked by thy sword,
from men whose portion in life is of the world.
May their belly be filled with what thou hast stored up for them;
may their children have more than enough;
may they leave something over to their babes.
when I awake, I shall be satisfied with beholding thy form.
