10 For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine 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 shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at 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.
