Psalms 16


Michtam of David.

Preserve me, O God: for in thee do I put my trust.
Michtam: or, A golden Psalm
O my soul, thou hast said unto the  Lord, Thou art my Lord: my goodness extendeth not to thee; But to the saints that are in the earth, and to the excellent, in whom is all my delight. Their sorrows shall be multiplied that hasten after another god: their drink offerings of blood will I not offer, nor take up their names into my lips.
hasten…: or, give gifts to another
The  Lord is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot.
of mine…: Heb. of my part
The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage. I will bless the  Lord, who hath given me counsel: my reins also instruct me in the night seasons. I have set the  Lord always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope.
rest…: Heb. dwell confidently
10 For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. 11 Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
