1 Preserve me, O God, for I take refuge in You.
2 I say to Jehovah, You are my Lord; No good have I beyond You;
3 As for the saints who are on the earth, they are the excellent; All my delight is in them.
4 The sorrows of them who bartered for some other god will be multiplied; Their drink offerings of blood I will not offer, Nor will I take up their names upon my lips.
5 Jehovah is the portion of my inheritance and of my cup; You maintain my lot.
6 The measuring lines have fallen on pleasant places for me; Indeed the inheritance is beautiful to me.
7 I will bless Jehovah, who counsels me; Indeed in the nights my inward parts instruct me.
8 I have set Jehovah before me continually; Because He is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken.
9 Therefore my heart rejoices and my glory exults; Even my flesh dwells securely.
10 For You will not abandon my soul to Sheol, Nor let Your Holy One see the pit.
11 You will make known to me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand there are pleasures forever.
