1: Preserve me, O God; for in thee do I take refuge. 2: [O my soul], thou hast said unto Jehovah, Thou art my Lord: I have no good beyond thee. 3: As for the saints that are in the earth, They are the excellent in whom is all my delight. 4: Their sorrows shall be multiplied that give gifts for another [god]: Their drink-offerings of blood will I not offer, Nor take their names upon my lips. 5: Jehovah is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: Thou maintainest my lot. 6: The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; Yea, I have a goodly heritage. 7: I will bless Jehovah, who hath given me counsel; Yea, my heart instructeth me in the night seasons. 8: I have set Jehovah always before me: Because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. 9: Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth; My flesh also shall dwell in safety. 10: For thou wilt not leave my soul to Sheol; Neither wilt thou suffer thy holy one to see corruption. 11: Thou wilt show me the path of life: In thy presence is fulness of joy; In thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
