Psalm 16 (Michtam of David) Keep me, O God; for I have taken refuge in Thee. I have said unto the Lord; “Thou art my Lord; I have no good but in Thee’; As for the holy that are in the earth, They are the excellent in whom is all my delight. Let the idols of them be multiplied that make suit unto another; Their drink-offerings of blood will I not offer, Nor take their names upon my lips. O Lord, the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup, Thou maintainest my lot. The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; Yea, I have a goodly heritage. I will bless the Lord, who hath given me counsel; Yea, in the night seasons my reins instruct me. I have set the Lord always before me; Surely He is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth; My flesh also dwelleth in safety; For Thou wilt not abandon my soul to the nether-world; Neither wilt Thou suffer Thy godly one to see the pit. Thou makest me to know the path of life; In Thy presence is fullness of joy, In Thy right hand bliss for evermore.
