11Preserve me, O God, for 2I takerefuge in You.
2aI said to the LORD, "You are bmy Lord ; I 3have nogoodbesides You."
As for the c4saintswho are in the earth, dThey are the majesticones5in whom is all my delight.
The e6sorrows of those who have fbartered for another god will be multiplied ; I shall not pour out their drinkofferings of 7blood, Nor will I 8take their names upon my lips.
The LORD is the 9portion of my inheritance and my 10cup ; You support my 11lot.
The 12lines have fallen to me in pleasant places; Indeed, my heritage is 13beautiful to me.
I will bless the LORDwho has 14counseled me; Indeed, my g15mindinstructs me in the night.
816I have 17set the LORDcontinuallybefore me; Because He is 18at my righthand, 19I will not be shaken.
9Therefore20my heart is glad and 21my gloryrejoices ; My fleshalso will 22dwellsecurely.
For You 23will not abandon my soul to hSheol ; Nor will You i24allow Your jHolyOne to kundergodecay.
You will makeknown to me 25the path of life ; In 26Your presence is fullness of joy ; In Your righthand there are 27pleasuresforever.
