1 <> Preserve me, God, for in you do I take refuge. 1 Keep me safe, O God, for in you I take refuge.
2 My soul, you have said to Yahweh, "You are my Lord. Apart from you I have no good thing." 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 in 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 give gifts to another god. Their drink-offerings of blood I will not offer, Nor take 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 Yahweh assigned my portion and my cup. You made my lot secure. 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.
