Psalm 16
Young's Literal Translation

Practicing the Presence of God

(Psalm 49:1-20; Matthew 28:1-10; Mark 16:1-8; Luke 24:1-12; John 20:1-9)

1A Secret Treasure of David. Preserve me, O God, for I did trust in Thee.

2Thou hast said to Jehovah, ‘My Lord Thou [art];’ My good [is] not for thine own sake;

3For the holy ones who [are] in the land, And the honourable, all my delight [is] in them.

4Multiplied 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.

5Jehovah [is] the portion of my share, and of my cup, Thou — Thou dost uphold my lot.

6Lines have fallen to me in pleasant places, Yea, a beauteous inheritance [is] for me.

7I bless Jehovah who hath counselled me; Also [in] the nights my reins instruct me.

8I did place Jehovah before me continually, Because — at my right hand I am not moved.

9Therefore hath my heart been glad, And my honour doth rejoice, Also my flesh dwelleth confidently:

10For Thou dost not leave my soul to Sheol, Nor givest thy saintly one to see corruption.

11Thou causest me to know the path of life; Fulness of joys [is] with Thy presence, Pleasant things by Thy right hand for ever!

Psalm 15
