Psalm 16
Brenton's Septuagint Translation Par ▾ 

The Presence of the LORD

1(15:1) A writing of David. Keep me, O Lord; for I have hoped in thee.

2(15:2) I said to the Lord, Thou art my Lord; for thou has no need of my goodness.

3(15:3) On behalf of the saints that are in his land, he has magnified all his pleasure in them.

4(15:4) Their weaknesses have been multiplied; afterward they hasted. I will by no means assemble their bloody meetings, neither will I make mention of their names with my lips.

5(15:5) The Lord is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou art he that restores my inheritance to me.

6(15:6) The lines have fallen to me in the best places, yea, I have a most excellent heritage.

7(15:7) I will bless the Lord who has instructed me; my reins too have chastened me even till night.

8(15:8) I foresaw the Lord always before my face; for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved.

9(15:9) Therefore my heart rejoiced an my tongue exulted; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope:

10(15:10) because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.

11(15:11) Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou wilt fill me with joy with thy countenance: at thy right hand there are delights for ever.
