Chapter 16

1

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

2

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

3

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

4

 Multiplied 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.

5

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

6

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

7

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

8

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

9

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

10

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

11

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