Psalms Chapter 16 – David showeth the hope of life everlasting. (Michtam of David.)

1 Preserve me, O God; for in thee do I put my trust.


2 Thou hast said unto me, that thou art the Lord my God, and, My goodness is extended unto thee;


3 And to all the saints that dwell in the earth, and the excellent, in whom is all my delight.


4 And the wicked, there is no delight in them; their sorrows shall be multiplied upon all those who hasten for to seek another god; their drink offerings of blood will I not accept, nor take up their names into my lips.


5 Therefore thou, Lord, art 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 the Lord, who hath given me counsel; my reins also instruct me in the night seasons.


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 thine 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 there are pleasures forevermore.
