Psalm 16

Michtam of David
1 Watch over me, O Mighty God, for in You I put my trust.
2 Oh my soul, you have said to Jehovah, You are my Lord; I have no goodness 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. I will not pour out their drink offerings of blood; and I will not take up their names on my lips.
5 Jehovah is the portion of my inheritance and of my cup; You shall uphold my lot.
6 The lines have fallen to me in pleasant places; yea, I have a beautiful inheritance.
7 I will bless Jehovah, who has given me counsel; my heart also instructs me at night.
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 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 make known to Me the way of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy. At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
