Psalms 16

Brenton(i) 1 (15:1) A writing of David. Keep me, O Lord; for I have hoped in thee. 2 (15:2) I said to the Lord, Thou art my Lord; for thou has no need of my goodness. 3 (15:3) On behalf of the saints that are in his land, he has magnified all his pleasure in them. 4 (15:4) Their weaknesses have been multiplied; afterward they hasted. I will by no means assemble their bloody meetings, neither will I make mention of their names with my lips. 5 (15:5) The Lord is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou art he that restores my inheritance to me. 6 (15:6) The lines have fallen to me in the best places, yea, I have a most excellent heritage. 7 (15:7) I will bless the Lord who has instructed me; my reins too have chastened me even till night. 8 (15:8) I foresaw the Lord always before my face; for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved. 9 (15:9) Therefore my heart rejoiced an my tongue exulted; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope: 10 (15:10) because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. 11 (15:11) Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou wilt fill me with joy with thy countenance: at thy right hand there are delights for ever.
