Chapter 16

1


 

  Michtam. Of David.
Keep me safe, O God: for in you I have put my faith.  

 

 


2


 

  O my soul, you have said to the Lord, You are my Lord: I have no good but you.  

 

 


3


 

  As for the saints who are in the earth, they are the noble in whom is all my delight.  

 

 


4


 

  Their sorrows will be increased who go after another god: I will not take drink offerings from their hands, or take their names on my lips.  

 

 


5


 

  The Lord is my heritage and the wine of my cup; you are the supporter of my right.  

 

 


6


 

  Fair are the places marked out for me; I have a noble heritage.  

 

 


7


 

  I will give praise to the Lord who has been my guide; knowledge comes to me from my thoughts in the night.  

 

 


8


 

  I have put the Lord before me at all times; because he is at my right hand, I will not be moved.  

 

 


9


 

  Because of this my heart is glad, and my glory is full of joy: while my flesh takes its rest in hope.  

 

 


10


 

  For you will not let my soul be prisoned in the underworld; you will not let your loved one see the place of death.  

 

 


11


 

  You will make clear to me the way of life; where you are joy is complete; in your right hand there are pleasures for ever and ever.
