Psalm 16 (Good News Translation)

View In My Bible
1 Protect me, O God; I trust in you for safety. 2 I say to the Lord, "You are my Lord; all the good things I have come from you." 3 How excellent are the Lord's faithful people! My greatest pleasure is to be with them. 4 Those who rush to other gods bring many troubles on themselves. a I will not take part in their sacrifices; I will not worship their gods. 5 You, Lord, are all I have, and you give me all I need; my future is in your hands. 6 How wonderful are your gifts to me; how good they are! 7 I praise the Lord, because he guides me, and in the night my conscience warns me. 8 I am always aware of the Lord's presence; he is near, and nothing can shake me. 9 And so I am thankful and glad, and I feel completely secure, 10 because you protect me from the power of death. 1 I have served you faithfully, and you will not abandon me to the world of the dead. 11 You will show me the path that leads to life; 2 your presence fills me with joy and brings me pleasure forever.
