I said to the LORD, "You are my Lord;1 apart from you I have no good thing."23
As for the saints3 who are in the land,4 they are the glorious ones in whom is all my delight.a4
The sorrows5 of those will increase who run after other gods.6 I will not pour out their libations of blood or take up their names7 on my lips.
LORD, you have assigned me my portion8 and my cup;9 you have made my lot10 secure.
The boundary lines11 have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance.127
I will praise the LORD, who counsels me;13 even at night14 my heart instructs me.
I have set the LORD always before me. Because he is at my right hand,15 I will not be shaken.169
Therefore my heart is glad17 and my tongue rejoices; my body also will rest secure,1810
because you will not abandon me to the grave,b19 nor will you let your Holy Onec20 see decay.2111
You have maded known to me the path of life;22 you will fill me with joy in your presence,23 with eternal pleasures24 at your right hand.25
