||Michtam of David.
1 Preserve me, O God: afor in thee do I put my trust.
2 O my soul, thou hast said unto the Lord, Thou art my Lord:
bMy goodness extendeth not to thee;
3 But to the saints that are in the earth,
And to the excellent, cin whom is all my delight.
4 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.
5 The Lord is fthe portion †of mine ginheritance and of my hcup:
Thou maintainest my ilot.
6 The ilines are fallen unto me in jpleasant places;
Yea, I have a goodly heritage.
7 I will bless the Lord, who hath given me counsel:
My kreins also instruct me lin the night seasons.
8 mI have nset the Lord always before me:
Because ohe is at my right hand, pI shall not be moved.
9 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.
