Protect me, O God, because I take refuge in you.
I said to the LORD, "You are my Lord. Without you, I have nothing good."
Those who lead holy lives on earth are the noble ones who fill me with joy.
Those who quickly chase after other gods multiply their sorrows. I will not pour out their sacrificial offerings of blood or use my lips to speak their names.
The LORD is my inheritance and my cup. You are the one who determines my destiny.
Your boundary lines mark out pleasant places for me. Indeed, my inheritance is something beautiful.
I will praise the LORD, who advises me. My conscience warns me at night.
