The LORD the Psalmist’s Portion in Life and Deliverer in Death.
A Mikhtam of David.
1Preserve me, O God, for I take refuge in Thee.
2I said to the LORD, “Thou art my Lord;
3As for the saints who are in the earth,
4The sorrows of those who have bartered for another god will be multiplied;
5The LORD is the portion of my inheritance and my cup;
6The lines have fallen to me in pleasant places;
7I will bless the LORD who has counseled me;
8I have set the LORD continually before me;
9Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoices;
10For Thou wilt not abandon my soul to Sheol;
11Thou wilt make known to me the path of life;
