Preserve me, O God, for in you I 1take refuge.
I say to the LORD, "You are my Lord; 2I have no good apart from you."
As for 3the saints in the land, they are the excellent ones, in whom is all my delight.a4
The sorrows of those who run afterb another god shall multiply; their drink offerings of blood I will not pour out or 4take their names on my lips.
The LORD is 5my chosen portion and my 6cup; you hold my 7lot.
68The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance.
