Psalm 16 NLT

1 A psalm of David. Keep me safe, O God, for I have come to you for refuge.
2 I said to the LORD, "You are my Master! All the good things I have are from you."
3 The godly people in the land are my true heroes! I take pleasure in them!
4 Those who chase after other gods will be filled with sorrow. I will not take part in their sacrifices or even speak the names of their gods.
5 LORD, you alone are my inheritance, my cup of blessing. You guard all that is mine.
6 The land you have given me is a pleasant land. What a wonderful inheritance!
7 I will bless the LORD who guides me; even at night my heart instructs me.
8 I know the LORD is always with me. I will not be shaken, for he is right beside me.
9 No wonder my heart is filled with joy, and my mouth a shouts his praises! My body rests in safety.
