Psalm 16
New International VersionInternational Standard Version
1A miktam of David. Keep me safe, my God, for in you I take refuge.1Keep me safe, God, for I take refuge in you.
2I say to the LORD, "You are my Lord; apart from you I have no good thing."2I told the LORD, "You are my master, I have nothing good apart from you."
3I say of the holy people who are in the land, "They are the noble ones in whom is all my delight."3As for the saints that are in the land, they are noble, and all my delight is in them.
4Those who run after other gods will suffer more and more. I will not pour out libations of blood to such gods or take up their names on my lips.4Those who hurry after another god will have many sorrows; I will not present their drink offerings of blood, nor will my lips speak their names.
5LORD, you alone are my portion and my cup; you make my lot secure.5The LORD is my inheritance and my cup; you support my lot.
6The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance.6The boundary lines have fallen in pleasant places for me; truly, I have a beautiful heritage.
7I will praise the LORD, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me.7I will bless the LORD who has counseled me; indeed, my conscience instructs me during the night.
8I keep my eyes always on the LORD. With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.8I have set the LORD before me continuously; because he stands at my right hand, I will stand firm.
9Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will rest secure,9Therefore, my heart is glad, my whole being rejoices, and my body will dwell securely.
10because you will not abandon me to the realm of the dead, nor will you let your faithful one see decay.10For you will not leave my soul in Sheol, you will not allow your holy one to experience corruption.
11You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.11You cause me to know the path of life; in your presence is joyful abundance, at your right hand there are pleasures forever.
