1: Michtam of David. Preserve me, O God: for in thee do I put my trust. 2: [O my soul], thou hast said to the LORD, Thou [art] my Lord: my goodness [extendeth] not to thee; 3: [But] to the saints that [are] in the earth, and [to] the excellent, in whom [is] all my delight. 4: Their sorrows shall be multiplied [that] hasten [after] another [god]: their drink-offerings of blood will I not offer, nor take their names into my lips. 5: The LORD [is] the portion of my inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot. 6: The lines have fallen to me in pleasant [places]; yes, I have a goodly heritage. 7: I will bless the LORD, who hath given me counsel: my reins also instruct me in the night season. 8: I have set the LORD 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 rest in hope. 10: For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thy Holy One to see corruption. 11: Thou wilt show me the path of life: in thy presence [is] fullness of joy; at thy right hand [are] pleasures for evermore.
