Bible in Basic English (BBE) New International Version (NIV)
1 Keep me safe, O God: for in you I have put my faith. 1 Keep me safe, O God, for in you I take refuge.
2 O my soul, you have said to the Lord, You are my Lord: I have no good but you. 2 I said to the LORD, "You are my Lord; apart from you I have no good thing."
3 As for the saints who are in the earth, they are the noble in whom is all my delight. 3 As for the saints who are in the land, they are the glorious ones in whom is all my delight.
4 Their sorrows will be increased who go after another god: I will not take drink offerings from their hands, or take their names on my lips. 4 The sorrows of those will increase who run after other gods. I will not pour out their libations of blood or take up their names on my lips.
5 The Lord is my heritage and the wine of my cup; you are the supporter of my right. 5 LORD, you have assigned me my portion and my cup; you have made my lot secure.
6 Fair are the places marked out for me; I have a noble heritage. 6 The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance.
7 I will give praise to the Lord who has been my guide; knowledge comes to me from my thoughts in the night. 7 I will praise the LORD, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me.
8 I have put the Lord before me at all times; because he is at my right hand, I will not be moved. 8 I have set the LORD always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
9 Because of this my heart is glad, and my glory is full of joy: while my flesh takes its rest in hope. 9 Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will rest secure,
10 For you will not let my soul be prisoned in the underworld; you will not let your loved one see the place of death. 10 because you will not abandon me to the grave, nor will you let your Holy One see decay.
11 You will make clear to me the way of life; where you are joy is complete; in your right hand there are pleasures for ever and ever. 11 You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.
