Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 A Secret Treasure of David. Preserve me, O God, for I did trust in Thee. 1 Keep me safe, O God, for in you I take refuge.
2 Thou hast said to Jehovah, `My Lord Thou [art];' My good [is] not for thine own sake; 2 I said to the LORD, "You are my Lord; apart from you I have no good thing."
3 For the holy ones who [are] in the land, And the honourable, all my delight [is] in them. 3 As for the saints who are in the land, they are the glorious ones in whom is all my delight.
4 Multiplied are their griefs, [Who] have hastened backward; I pour not out their libations of blood, Nor do I 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 Jehovah [is] the portion of my share, and of my cup, Thou -- Thou dost uphold my lot. 5 LORD, you have assigned me my portion and my cup; you have made my lot secure.
6 Lines have fallen to me in pleasant places, Yea, a beauteous inheritance [is] for me. 6 The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance.
7 I bless Jehovah who hath counselled me; Also [in] the nights my reins instruct me. 7 I will praise the LORD, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me.
8 I did place Jehovah before me continually, Because -- at my right hand I am not moved. 8 I have set the LORD always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
9 Therefore hath my heart been glad, And my honour doth rejoice, Also my flesh dwelleth confidently: 9 Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will rest secure,
10 For Thou dost not leave my soul to Sheol, Nor givest thy saintly 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 causest me to know the path of life; Fulness of joys [is] with Thy presence, Pleasant things by Thy right hand for ever! 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.
