Psalm 16


Preserve me, O God:

For in thee do I put my trust.

my soul, thou hast said unto the LORD,

Thou art my Lord:

My goodness extendeth not to thee;

But to the saints that are in the earth,

And to the excellent,

In whom is all my delight.

Their sorrows shall be multiplied

That hasten after another god:

Their drink offerings of blood will I not offer,

Nor take up their names into my lips.

The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance

And of my cup:

Thou maintainest my lot.

The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places;

Yea, I have a goodly heritage.

I will bless the LORD,

Who hath given me counsel:

My reins also instruct me in the night seasons.

I have set the LORD always before me:

Because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.

Therefore my heart is glad,

And my glory rejoiceth:

My flesh also shall rest in hope.

For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell;

Neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.

Thou wilt shew me the path of life:

In thy presence is fulness of joy;

At thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
