Psalm chapter 16

Bible Version
Book
Chapter
Commentary
1
[A Davidic Miktam.] Protect me, God, for I take refuge in You.
2
I said to the LORD, "You are my Lord; I have no good besides You."
3
As for the holy people who are in the land, they are the noble ones in whom is all my delight.
4
The sorrows of those who take another [god] for themselves multiply; I will not pour out their drink offerings of blood, and I will not speak their names with my lips.
5
LORD, You are my portion and my cup [of blessing]; You hold my future.
6
The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance.
7
I will praise the LORD who counsels me-- even at night my conscience instructs me.
8
I keep the LORD in mind always. Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
9
Therefore my heart is glad, and my spirit rejoices; my body also rests securely.
10
For You will not abandon me to Sheol; You will not allow Your Faithful One to see the Pit.
11
You reveal the path of life to me; in Your presence is abundant joy; in Your right hand are eternal pleasures.
