1Preserve me, O God: for in thee do I put my trust .
O my soul, thou hast said unto the LORD, Thou art my Lord: my goodness extendeth not to thee;
But to the saintsthat are in the earth, and to the excellent, in whom is all my delight.4
Their sorrows shall be multiplied that hastena after another god: their drink offerings of blood will I not offer , nor take up their names into my lips.5
The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot.6
The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodlyheritage.7
I will bless the LORD, who hath given me counsel : my reins also instruct me in the night seasons.8
I have set the LORDalways before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved .
Therefore my heart is glad , and my gloryrejoiceth : my flesh also shall restb in hope.10
For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to seecorruption.11
Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
