View In My Bible

The LORD the Psalmist's Portion in Life and Deliverer in Death.

A Mikhtam of David.

1 1Preserve me, O God, for 2I take refuge in You. 2 aI said to the LORD, "You are bmy Lord; I 3have no good besides You." 3 As for the c4saints who are in the earth, dThey are the majestic ones 5in whom is all my delight. 4 The e6sorrows of those who have fbartered for another god will be multiplied; I shall not pour out their drink offerings of 7blood, Nor will I 8take their names upon my lips. 5 The LORD is the 9portion of my inheritance and my 10cup; You support my 11lot. 6 The 12lines have fallen to me in pleasant places; Indeed, my heritage is 13beautiful to me. 7 I will bless the LORD who has 14counseled me; Indeed, my g15mind instructs me in the night. 8 16I have 17set the LORD continually before me; Because He is 18at my right hand, 19I will not be shaken. 9 Therefore 20my heart is glad and 21my glory rejoices; My flesh also will 22dwell securely. 10 For You 23will not abandon my soul to hSheol; Nor will You i24allow Your jHoly One to kundergo decay. 11 You will make known to me 25the path of life; In 26Your presence is fullness of joy; In Your right hand there are 27pleasures forever.
