Douay-Rheims (RHE) New International Version (NIV)
1 (15-1) <The inscription of a title to David himself.> Preserve me, O Lord, for I have put my trust in thee. 1 Keep me safe, O God, for in you I take refuge.
2 (15-2) I have said to the Lord, thou art my God, for thou hast no need of my goods. 2 I said to the LORD, "You are my Lord; apart from you I have no good thing."
3 (15-3) To the saints, who are in his land, he hath made wonderful all my desires in them. 3 As for the saints who are in the land, they are the glorious ones in whom is all my delight.
4 (15-4) Their infirmities were multiplied: afterwards they made haste. I will not gather together their meetings for blood offerings: nor will I be mindful of their names by 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 (15-5) The Lord is the portion of my inheritance and of my cup: it is thou that wilt restore my inheritance to me. 5 LORD, you have assigned me my portion and my cup; you have made my lot secure.
6 (15-6) The lines are fallen unto me in goodly places: for my inheritance is goodly to me. 6 The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance.
7 (15-7) I will bless the Lord, who hath given me understanding: moreover, my reins also have corrected me even till night. 7 I will praise the LORD, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me.
8 (15-8) I set the Lord always in my sight: for he is at my right hand, that I be not moved. 8 I have set the LORD always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
9 (15-9) Therefore my heart hath been glad, and my tongue hath rejoiced: moreover, my flesh also shall rest in hope. 9 Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will rest secure,
10 (15-10) Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; nor wilt thou give thy holy one to see corruption. 10 because you will not abandon me to the grave, nor will you let your Holy One see decay.
11 (15-11) Thou hast made known to me the ways of life, thou shalt fill me with joy with thy countenance: at thy right hand are delights even to the end. 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.
