1aProtect me, God, because I take refuge in you.
I say to the LORD, "You are my Lord. Apart from you, I have nothing good."
Now as for the "holy ones" in the land, the "magnificent ones" that I was so happy about;
let their suffering increase because they hurried after a different god.b I won't participate in their blood offerings; I won't let their names cross my lips.
You, LORD, are my portion, my cup; you control my destiny.
The property lines have fallen beautifully for me; yes, I have a lovely home.
