Psalms - Chapter 16 | New King James Version

  • 1. A Michtam of David. Preserve me, O God, for in You I put my trust.
  • 2. O my soul, you have said to the Lord, "You are my Lord, My goodness is nothing apart from You."
  • 3. As for the saints who are on the earth, "They are the excellent ones, in whom is all my delight."
  • 4. Their sorrows shall be multiplied who hasten after another god; Their drink offerings of blood I will not offer, Nor take up their names on my lips.
  • 5. O Lord, You are the portion of my inheritance and my cup; You maintain my lot.
  • 6. The lines have fallen to me in pleasant places; Yes, I have a good inheritance.
  • 7. I will bless the Lord who has given me counsel; My heart also instructs 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 rejoices; My flesh also will rest in hope.
  • 10. For You will not leave my soul in Sheol, Nor will You allow Your Holy One to see corruption.
  • 11. You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
