Psalms 16


The LORD is My Portion

An inscription on a monument; to David.

1Guard me, O  lord, for upon you I hoped! 2I said to the  lord, [2my  lord 1You are], for [4of my goodness 2no 3need 1you have]. 3[4the 5holy ones 6in 7his land 3wondered 1The 2  lord], all his willing ones among them. 4[2were multiplied 1Their weaknesses] -- [2after 3these gods 1they that hastened]. In no way shall I bring together the ones of their gathering for blood, nor in any way shall I mention their names through my lips. 5The  lord is the portion of my inheritance and of my cup. You are the one restoring my inheritance to me. 6The measuring lines fallen to me in the most excellent places. Yes, for my inheritance [2most excellent 1is to me]. 7I will bless the  lord, the one bringing understanding to me; but still also until night [2corrected 3me 1my kidneys]. 8I foresaw the  lord before me always; for [2on 3my right 1he is] that I should not be shaken. 9On account of this [2was glad 1my heart], and [2exulted 1my tongue]; and still also my flesh shall encamp in hope. 10For you shall not abandon my soul in Hades, nor shall you give your sacred one to see corruption. 11You made known to me the ways of life. You shall fill me of gladness with your face. Delightfulness is at your right unto the end.
