Psalms 16

YLT(i) 1 A Secret Treasure of David. Preserve me, O God, for I did trust in Thee. 2 Thou hast said to Jehovah, `My Lord Thou art;' My good is not for thine own sake; 3 For the holy ones who are in the land, And the honourable, all my delight is in them. 4 Multiplied are their griefs, Who have hastened backward; I pour not out their libations of blood, Nor do I take up their names on my lips. 5 Jehovah is the portion of my share, and of my cup, Thou—Thou dost uphold my lot. 6 Lines have fallen to me in pleasant places, Yea, a beauteous inheritance is for me. 7 I bless Jehovah who hath counselled me; Also in the nights my reins instruct me.
8 I did place Jehovah before me continually, Because—at my right hand I am not moved. 9 Therefore hath my heart been glad, And my honour doth rejoice, Also my flesh dwelleth confidently: 10 For Thou dost not leave my soul to Sheol, Nor givest thy saintly one to see corruption. 11 Thou causest me to know the path of life; Fulness of joys is with Thy presence, Pleasant things by Thy right hand for ever!
