Psalm 16
Legacy Standard Bible►► 

You Will Not Forsake My Soul

A [†]Mikhtam of David.

1Keep me, O God, for I take refuge in You.

2O my soul, you have said to Yahweh, “You are [†]my Lord;

I have no good without You.”

3As for the [†]saints who are in the earth,

They are the majestic ones in whom is all my delight.

4The [†]pains of those who have [†]bartered for another god will be multiplied;

I shall not pour out their drink offerings of blood,

Nor will I take their names upon my lips.

5Yahweh is the portion of my inheritance and my cup;

You support my lot.

6The lines have fallen to me in pleasant places;

Indeed, my inheritance is beautiful to me.

7I will bless Yahweh who has counseled me;

Indeed, my [†]mind instructs me in the night.

8I have set Yahweh continually before me;

Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.

9Therefore my heart is glad and my glory rejoices;

My flesh also will dwell securely.

10For You will not forsake my soul to Sheol;

You will not give Your [†]Holy One over to see [†]corruption.

11You will make known to me the path of life;

In Your presence is fullness of joy;

In Your right hand there are pleasures forever.
