Psalm 16

Confidence in the Lord

A Miktam of David.

Protect me, God, for I take refuge in you.a

2IA said to the Lord, “You are my Lord;

I have nothing good besides you.”B a

3As for the holy people who are in the land,a

they are the noble ones.

All my delight is in them.

4The sorrows of those who take another god

for themselves will multiply;

I will not pour out their drink offerings of blood,

and I will not speak their names with my lips.a

5Lord, you are my portionA

and my cup of blessing;

you hold my future.a

6The boundary lines have fallen for me

in pleasant places;

indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance.a

7I will bless the Lord who counsels mea

even at night when my thoughts trouble me.a b

8I always let the Lord guide me.A

Because he is at my right hand,

I will not be shaken.a

9Therefore my heart is glad

and my whole being rejoices;

my body also rests securely.a

10For you will not abandon me to Sheol;a

you will not allow your faithful one to see decay.b

11You reveal the path of life to me;

in your presence is abundant joy;a

at your right hand are eternal pleasures.b
