1 Preserve me, O God; For in thee do I take refuge. 1 Keep me safe, O God, for in you I take refuge.
2 [O my soul], thou hast said unto Jehovah, Thou art my Lord: I have no good beyond thee. 2 I said to the LORD, "You are my Lord; apart from you I have no good thing."
3 As for the saints that are in the earth, They are 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 give gifts for another [god]: Their drink-offerings of blood will I not offer, Nor 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 Jehovah is the portion of mine 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 are fallen unto me in pleasant places; Yea, 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 Jehovah, who hath given me counsel; Yea, my heart instructeth me in the night seasons. 7 I will praise the LORD, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me.
8 I have set Jehovah 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 dwell in safety. 9 Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will rest secure,
10 For thou wilt not leave my soul to Sheol; 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 fulness of joy; In thy right hand there 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.
