Psalm 16

Psalm 16
A miktam of David.
1My God, keep me safe.
I go to you for safety.
2I say to the Lord, “You are my Lord.
Without you, I don’t have anything that is good.”
3I say about God’s people who live in our land, “They are the noble ones.
I take great delight in them.”
4Those who run after other gods
will suffer more and more.
I will not pour out offerings of blood to those gods.
My lips will not speak their names.
5 Lord, you alone are everything I need.
You make my life secure.
6I am very pleased with what you have given me.
I am very happy with what I’ve received from you.
7I will praise the Lord. He gives me good advice.
Even at night my heart teaches me.
8I keep my eyes always on the Lord.
He is at my right hand.
So I will always be secure.
9So my heart is glad. Joy is on my tongue.
My body also will be secure.
10You will not leave me in the place of the dead.
You will not let your faithful one rot away.
11You always show me the path of life.
You will fill me with joy when I am with you.
You will make me happy forever at your right hand.
