Psalm 16

Song of Trust and Security in God

A Miktam of David.

1

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

2

I say to the Lord, “You are my Lord;

I have no good apart from you.”

 

3

As for the holy ones in the land, they are the noble,

in whom is all my delight.

 

4

Those who choose another god multiply their sorrows;

their drink offerings of blood I will not pour out

or take their names upon my lips.

 

5

The Lord is my chosen portion and my cup;

you hold my lot.

6

The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;

I have a goodly heritage.

 

7

I bless the Lord who gives me counsel;

in the night also my heart instructs me.

8

I keep the Lord always before me;

because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.
