Psalm 16 (Lexham English Bible)

View In My Bible

A miktam of David.

Confidence in Yahweh

1 abProtect me, O God, for I take refuge in you. 2 [Oh my soul] you have saidc to Yahweh, "You [are] my Lord. I have no good apart from you." 3 With regard to [the] saints who [are] in the land, they [are the] noble ones in [whom is] all my desire. 4 Those [who] hurry [after]d another [god] increase their sorrows. I will not pour out their drink offerings of blood, nor take up their names on my lips. 5 Yahweh [is] the portion [which is] my share and my cup. You hold my lot. 6 [The] measuring lines have fallen for me in pleasant places. Yes, [my] inheritance is delightful for me. 7 I will bless Yahweh who advises me; yes, [at] night my {innermost being}e instructs me. 8 I have set Yahweh before me always. Because [he is] at my right hand I will not be shaken. 9 Therefore my heart is glad and my glory rejoices. Yes, my body will dwell in safety, 10 for you will not abandon my soul to Sheol; you will not give your faithful one to see [the] grave. 11 You will make known to me [the] path of life. In your presence [is] fullness of joy. At your right hand [are] pleasures forever.
