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 to 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 their names into my lips. {hasten...: or, give gifts to another} The LORD is the portion of my inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot. {of mine...: Heb. of my part} The lines have fallen to 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 season.

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 permit thy Holy One to see corruption. 11 Thou wilt show me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand are pleasures for evermore.
