New King James Version (NKJV) New International Version (NIV)
1 A Michtam of David. Preserve me, O God, for in You I put my trust. 1 Keep me safe, O God, for in you I take refuge.
2 O my soul, you have said to the Lord, "You are my Lord, My goodness is nothing apart from 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 on the earth, "They are the excellent 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 Their sorrows shall be multiplied who hasten after another god; Their drink offerings of blood I will not offer, Nor take up their names on 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 O Lord, You are the portion of my inheritance and my cup; You maintain 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 good inheritance. 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 given me counsel; My heart also instructs 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 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 rejoices; My flesh also will rest in hope. 9 Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will rest secure,
10 For You will not leave my soul in Sheol, Nor will You allow Your 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 You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore. 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.
