Protect me, O God, for in you I take refuge.
I say to the Lord, "You are my Lord; I have no good apart from you." a3
As for the holy ones in the land, they are the noble, in whom is all my delight.
Those who choose another god multiply their sorrows; b their drink offerings of blood I will not pour out or take their names upon my lips.
The Lord is my chosen portion and my cup; you hold my lot.
The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; I have a goodly heritage.
