The Path of Eternal Life

Psalm 16

A Michtam of David.
Keep me safe, O God, for in You I have found shelter.
I said to Adonai: “You are my Lord—
I have no good apart from You.”
As for the kedoshim who are in the land,
they are noble—in them is all my delight.
As for those who run after another god,
    may their sorrows multiply.
I will not pour out their drink offerings of blood,
    nor lift up their names with my lips.

Adonai is my portion and my cup.
You cast my lot.
My boundary lines fall in pleasant places
—surely my heritage is beautiful.
I will bless Adonai, who counsels me.
Even at night my heart instructs me.
I have set Adonai always before me.
Since He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
So my heart is glad and my soul rejoices.
My body also rests secure.
10 For You will not abandon my soul to Sheol
nor let Your faithful one see the Pit.[a]
11 You make known to me the path of life.
Abundance of joys are in Your presence,
    eternal pleasures at Your right hand.[b]
