Psalm 16

1  Preserve me, O God, for in you have I taken refuge; 
   I have said to the Lord, ‘You are my lord,
      all my good depends on you.’
2  All my delight is upon the godly that are in the land, 
   upon those who are noble in heart.
3  Though the idols are legion
      that many run after, 
   their drink offerings of blood I will not offer,
      neither make mention of their names upon my lips.
4  The Lord himself is my portion and my cup; 
   in your hands alone is my fortune.
5  My share has fallen in a fair land; 
   indeed, I have a goodly heritage.
6  I will bless the Lord who has given me counsel, 
   and in the night watches he instructs my heart.
7  I have set the Lord always before me; 
   he is at my right hand; I shall not fall.
8  Wherefore my heart is glad and my spirit rejoices; 
   my flesh also shall rest secure.
9  For you will not abandon my soul to Death, 
   nor suffer your faithful one to see the Pit.
10  You will show me the path of life;
      in your presence is the fullness of joy 
   and in your right hand are pleasures for evermore.
