New American Standard (NAS) New International Version (NIV)
1 Preserve me, O God, for I take refuge in You. 1 Keep me safe, O God, for in you I take refuge.
2 I said to the LORD , "You are my Lord ; I have no good besides 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 majestic ones 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 The sorrows of those who have bartered for another god will be multiplied; I shall not pour out their drink offerings of blood, Nor will I take their names upon 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 the portion of my inheritance and my cup; You support my lot. 5 LORD, you have assigned me my portion and my cup; you have made my lot secure.
6 The lines have fallen to me in pleasant places; Indeed, my heritage is beautiful to me. 6 The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance.
7 I will bless the LORD who has counseled me; Indeed, my mind instructs me in the night. 7 I will praise the LORD, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me.
8 I have set the LORD continually before me; Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken. 8 I have set the LORD always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
9 Therefore my heart is glad and my glory rejoices; My flesh also will dwell securely. 9 Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will rest secure,
10 For You will not abandon my soul to Sheol; Nor will You allow Your Holy One to undergo decay. 10 because you will not abandon me to the grave, nor will you let your Holy One see decay.
11 You will make known to me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; In Your right hand there are pleasures forever. 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.
