Psalm 16

Preserve me, O God :
 for in you have I taken refuge.
I have said to the Lord, You are my lord :
 and all my good depends on you.
As for those who are held holy on the earth :
 the other gods in whom men delight,
Though the idols are many that men run after :
 their offerings of blood I will not offer,
   nor take their name upon my lips.
The Lord is my appointed portion and my cup :
 you hold my lot in your hands.
The share that has fallen to me is in pleasant places :
 and a fair land is my possession.
I will bless the Lord who has given me counsel :
 at night also he has instructed my heart.
I have set the Lord always before me :
 he is at my right hand, and I shall not fall.
Therefore my heart is glad and my spirit rejoices :
 my flesh also shall rest secure.
For you will not give me over to the power of death :
 nor suffer your faithful one to see the Pit.
You will show me the path of life :
 in your presence is the fulness of joy,
   and from your right hand flow delights for evermore.
