Psalm 16 Confidence in the Lord A Davidic Miktam. 16 1Protect me, God, for I take refuge in You. 2I[Z] said to Yahweh, “You are my Lord; I have nothing good besides You.”[A] 3As for the holy people who are in the land, they are the noble ones. All my delight is in them. 4The sorrows of those who take another god for themselves will multiply; I will not pour out their drink offerings of blood, and I will not speak their names with my lips. 5Lord, You are my portion[B] and my cup of blessing; You hold my future. 6The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance. 7I will praise the Lord who counsels me— even at night my conscience instructs me. 8I keep the Lord in mind[C] always. Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken. 9Therefore my heart is glad and my spirit rejoices; my body also rests securely. 10For You will not abandon me to Sheol; You will not allow Your Faithful One to see decay. 11You reveal the path of life to me; in Your presence is abundant joy; in Your right hand are eternal pleasures.
