Common English Bible (CEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 Protect me, God, because I take refuge in you. 1 Keep me safe, O God, for in you I take refuge.
2 I say to the LORD, "You are my Lord. Apart from you, I have nothing good." 2 I said to the LORD, "You are my Lord; apart from you I have no good thing."
3 Now as for the "holy ones" in the land, the "magnificent ones" that I was so happy about; 3 As for the saints who are in the land, they are the glorious ones in whom is all my delight.
4 let their suffering increase because they hurried after a different god. I won't participate in their blood offerings; I won't let their names cross 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 You, LORD, are my portion, my cup; you control my destiny. 5 LORD, you have assigned me my portion and my cup; you have made my lot secure.
6 The property lines have fallen beautifully for me; yes, I have a lovely home. 6 The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance.
7 I will bless the LORD who advises me; even at night I am instructed in the depths of my mind. 7 I will praise the LORD, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me.
8 I always put the LORD in front of me; I will not stumble because he is on my right side. 8 I have set the LORD always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
9 That's why my heart celebrates and my mood is joyous; yes, my whole body will rest in safety 9 Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will rest secure,
10 because you won't abandon my life to the grave; you won't let your faithful follower see the pit. 10 because you will not abandon me to the grave, nor will you let your Holy One see decay.
11 You teach me the way of life. In your presence is total celebration. Beautiful things are always in your right hand. 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.
