Psalms 16

1 Preserve me, O God, for in thee do I take refuge.

2 Thou [my soul] have said to LORD, Thou are my LORD. I have no good beyond thee.

3 As for the sanctified who are in the earth, they are the excellent in whom is all my delight.

4 Their sorrows shall be multiplied who give gifts for another [god]. Their drink-offerings of blood I will not offer, nor take their names upon my lips.

5 LORD is the portion of my inheritance and of my cup. Thou maintain my lot.

6 The lines are fallen to me in pleasant places. Yea, I have a fine heritage.

7 I will bless LORD, who has given me counsel. Yea, my heart instructs me in the night seasons.

8 I beheld (LXX/NT) 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 shall dwell in hope (LXX/NT).

10 For thou will not leave my soul to Sheol, nor will thou allow thy holy man to see corruption.

11 Thou made known to (LXX/NT) me the path of life. Thou will fill me of joy with thy countenance (LXX/NT).
