Psalm 16
King James BibleEnglish Standard Version
1Michtam of David. Preserve me, O God: for in thee do I put my trust.1Preserve me, O God, for in you I take refuge.
2O my soul, thou hast said unto the LORD, Thou art my Lord: my goodness extendeth not to thee;2I say to the LORD, “You are my Lord; I have no good apart from you.”
3But to the saints that are in the earth, and to the excellent, in whom is all my delight.3As for the saints in the land, they are the excellent ones, in whom is all my delight.
4Their sorrows shall be multiplied that hasten after another god: their drink offerings of blood will I not offer, nor take up their names into my lips.4The sorrows of those who run after another god shall multiply; their drink offerings of blood I will not pour out or take their names on my lips.
5The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot.5The LORD is my chosen portion and my cup; you hold my lot.
6The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage.6The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance.
7I will bless the LORD, who hath given me counsel: my reins also instruct me in the night seasons.7I bless the LORD who gives me counsel; in the night also my heart instructs me.
8I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.8I have set the LORD always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken.
9Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope.9Therefore my heart is glad, and my whole being rejoices; my flesh also dwells secure.
10For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.10For you will not abandon my soul to Sheol, or let your holy one see corruption.
11Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.11You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
