A miktam of David.

Confidence in Yahweh

1 Protect me, O God, for I take refuge in you.
2 [Oh my soul] you have said to Yahweh, "You [are] my Lord. I have no good apart from you."
3 With regard to [the] saints who [are] in the land, they [are the] noble ones in [whom is] all my desire.
4 Those [who] hurry [after] another [god] increase their sorrows. I will not pour out their drink offerings of blood, nor take up their names on my lips.
5 Yahweh [is] the portion [which is] my share and my cup. You hold my lot.
6 [The] measuring lines have fallen for me in pleasant places. Yes, [my] inheritance is delightful for me.
7 I will bless Yahweh who advises me; yes, [at] night my {innermost being} instructs me.
8 I have set Yahweh before me always. Because [he is] at my right hand I will not be shaken.
9 Therefore my heart is glad and my glory rejoices. Yes, my body will dwell in safety,
10 for you will not abandon my soul to Sheol; you will not give your faithful one to see [the] grave.
11 You will make known to me [the] path of life. In your presence [is] fullness of joy. At your right hand [are] pleasures forever.
