Psalm 16
Lamsa Bible Par ▾ 
1PRESERVE me, O God; for in thee do I put my trust.

2I have said unto the LORD, Thou art my LORD, and my goodness cometh from thee;

3I said it also to the saints that are on the earth, and to the excellent, in whom is all my delight.

4The sorrows of the wicked shall be multiplied in rapid succession that I may not pour out their libations of blood; nor will I mention their names with my lips.

5The LORD is the portion of my inheritance and of my cup; thou shalt restore my inheritance.

6My portion of the land fell to me in goodly places; yea, I have been pleased with my heritage.

7I will bless the LORD, for he has given me counsel; my intuition also guides me during the night.

8I have set the LORD always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.

9Therefore my heart is glad and my glory rejoices; my flesh also shall rest in hope.

10For thou hast left not my soul in Sheol; neither hast thou suffered thy Holy One to see corruption.

11Thou wilt show me the path of life, and I shall be filled with the joy of thy countenance, with the pleasure of victory of thy right hand.
