Psalm 16
Holman Christian Standard BibleEnglish Standard Version
1A Davidic Miktam. Protect me, God, for I take refuge in You. 1Preserve me, O God, for in you I take refuge.
2I said to Yahweh, "You are my Lord; I have nothing good besides You." 2I say to the LORD, “You are my Lord; I have no good apart from you.”
3As for the holy people who are in the land, they are the noble ones. All my delight is in them. 3As for the saints in the land, they are the excellent ones, in whom is all my delight.
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. 4The sorrows of those who run after another god shall multiply; their drink offerings of blood I will not pour out or take their names on my lips.
5 LORD, You are my portion and my cup of blessing; You hold my future. 5The LORD is my chosen portion and my cup; you hold my lot.
6The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance. 6The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance.
7I will praise the LORD who counsels me-- even at night my conscience instructs me. 7I bless the LORD who gives me counsel; in the night also my heart instructs me.
8I keep the LORD in mind always. Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken. 8I have set the LORD always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken.
9Therefore my heart is glad and my spirit rejoices; my body also rests securely. 9Therefore my heart is glad, and my whole being rejoices; my flesh also dwells secure.
10For You will not abandon me to Sheol; You will not allow Your Faithful One to see decay. 10For you will not abandon my soul to Sheol, or let your holy one see corruption.
11You reveal the path of life to me; in Your presence is abundant joy; in Your right hand are eternal pleasures. 11You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
