Tehillim (Psalms) 16
1Guard me, O Ěl, for I have taken refuge in You.
2I have said to יהוה, “You are יהוה, I have no good beside You.”
3As for the set-apart ones who are on the earth, They are the excellent ones, in whom is all my delight.
4The sorrows of those who run after another one are increased; I would not pour out their drink offerings of blood, Nor take up their names on my lips.
5יהוה is the portion of my inheritance and my cup; You uphold my lot.
6Boundary lines have fallen to me in pleasant places; Indeed, a good inheritance is mine.
7I bless יהוה who has given me counsel; My kidneys also instruct me in the nights.
8I have set יהוה always before me; Because He is at my right hand I am not shaken.
9Therefore my heart was glad, and my esteem rejoices; My flesh also dwells in safety.
10For You do not leave my being in She’ol, Neither let Your Lovingly-committed One see corruption.
11You show me the path of life; In Your presence is joy to satisfaction; At Your right hand are pleasures forever.
