Psalms 16

A Secret Treasure of David. Preserve me, O God, for I did trust in Thee. Thou hast said to Jehovah, `My Lord Thou art ;' My good is not for thine own sake; For the holy ones who are in the land, And the honourable, all my delight is in them. Multiplied are their griefs, Who have hastened backward; I pour not out their libations of blood, Nor do I take up their names on my lips. Jehovah is the portion of my share, and of my cup, Thou--Thou dost uphold my lot. Lines have fallen to me in pleasant places, Yea, a beauteous inheritance is for me. I bless Jehovah who hath counselled me; Also in the nights my reins instruct me.

I did place Jehovah before me continually, Because--at my right hand I am not moved. Therefore hath my heart been glad, And my honour doth rejoice, Also my flesh dwelleth confidently: 10 For Thou dost not leave my soul to Sheol, Nor givest thy saintly one to see corruption. 11 Thou causest me to know the path of life; Fulness of joys is with Thy presence, Pleasant things by Thy right hand for ever!
