Psalms 16:1-8

1 Preserve me, God, for in you do I take refuge.

2 My soul, you have said to Yahweh, "You are my Lord.  Apart from you I have no good thing."

3 As for the saints who are in the earth,  They are the excellent ones in whom is all my delight. 

4 Their sorrows shall be multiplied who give gifts to another god.  Their drink-offerings of blood I will not offer,  Nor take their names on my lips.

5 Yahweh assigned my portion and my cup.  You made my lot secure. 

6 The lines have fallen to me in pleasant places.  Yes, I have a good inheritance.

7 I will bless Yahweh, who has given me counsel.  Yes, my heart instructs me in the night seasons.

8 I have set Yahweh always before me.  Because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.
