Psalm 16 (New International Version)

View In My Bible

A "miktam" of David.

1 Keep me safe,1 O God, for in you I take refuge.2 2 I said to the LORD, "You are my Lord;3 apart from you I have no good thing."4 3 As for the saints5 who are in the land,6 they are the glorious ones in whom is all my delight.a 4 The sorrows7 of those will increase who run after other gods.8 I will not pour out their libations of blood or take up their names9 on my lips. 5 LORD, you have assigned me my portion10 and my cup;11 you have made my lot12 secure. 6 The boundary lines13 have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance.14 7 I will praise the LORD, who counsels me;15 even at night16 my heart instructs me. 8 I have set the LORD always before me. Because he is at my right hand,17 I will not be shaken.18 9 Therefore my heart is glad19 and my tongue rejoices; my body also will rest secure,20 10 because you will not abandon me to the grave,b21 nor will you let your Holy Onec22 see decay.23 11 You have maded known to me the path of life;24 you will fill me with joy in your presence,25 with eternal pleasures26 at your right hand.27
