The Webster Bible (WBT) New International Version (NIV)
1 Michtam of David. Preserve me, O God: for in thee do I put my trust. 1 Keep me safe, O God, for in you I take refuge.
2 [O my soul], thou hast said to the LORD, Thou [art] my Lord: my goodness [extendeth] not to thee; 2 I said to the LORD, "You are my Lord; apart from you I have no good thing."
3 [But] to the saints that [are] in the earth, and [to] the excellent, 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 shall be multiplied [that] hasten [after] another [god]: their drink-offerings of blood will I not offer, nor take their names into 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 of my cup: thou maintainest 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]; yes, I have a goodly heritage. 6 The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance.
7 I will bless the LORD, who hath given me counsel: my reins also instruct me in the night season. 7 I will praise the LORD, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me.
8 I have set the LORD always before me: because [he is] at my right hand, I shall 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 Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope. 9 Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will rest secure,
10 For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer 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 Thou wilt show me the path of life: in thy presence [is] fullness of joy; at thy right hand [are] pleasures for evermore. 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.
