1 MICHTAM1 of David. Preserve me, O God,2 for I have trusted in thee.
2 Thou hast said unto Jehovah, Thou [art] the3. Lord: my goodness [is] not to thee;
3 Unto the saints which are upon the earth, [even] them, and the excellent, All my delight [is] in them.
4 Their sorrows shall be multiplied; they have hastened [after] another; I will not pour out their drinkofferings of blood, and I will not take their names upon my lips.
5 Jehovah [is] the portion of mine inheritance and my cup; thou maintainest my lot.
6 The lines have fallen unto me in pleasant places, yea, the portion hath been fair to me.
7 I will bless Jehovah who hath counseled me; also by night my reins have admonished me.
8 I have set Jehovah before me always; because [he is] at my right hand, I shall not be moved.
9 Therefore my heart hath been glad, and my soul rejoiceth; my flesh also shall lie down in confidence.
10 For thou wilt not leave my soul in Sheol;4 thou wilt not suffer thine holy one to see corruption.
11 Thou wilt show me the path of life, fullness of joys in thy presence, pleasures at thy right hand forever.
