Tehilim Chapter 16

tehilim 016


1. A Miktam of David. Preserve me, O God; for in you I put my trust.
2. I have said to the Lord, You are my Lord; I have no good apart from you;
3. As for the holy ones who are in the earth, they are the excellent, in whom is all my delight.
4. And for those who choose another god, their sorrows shall be multiplied; their drink offerings of blood I will not offer, nor take up their names upon my lips.
5. The Lord is the portion of my inheritance and of my cup; you maintain my lot.
6. The lines are fallen for me in pleasant places; I have a goodly heritage.
7. I will bless the Lord, who has given me counsel; my insides also instruct me in the night seasons.
8. I have set the Lord always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.
9. Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoices; my flesh also dwells secure.
10. For you will not abandon my soul to Sheol; nor will you suffer your pious one to see the pit.
11. You will show me the path of life; in your presence is fullness of joy; at your right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
