Psalm 16:1-10 (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
