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.
