New International Version
A psalm of David.
2 The one whose walk is blameless,(D)
who does what is righteous,
who speaks the truth(E) from their heart;
3 whose tongue utters no slander,(F)
who does no wrong to a neighbor,
and casts no slur on others;
4 who despises a vile person
but honors(G) those who fear the Lord;
who keeps an oath(H) even when it hurts,
and does not change their mind;
5 who lends money to the poor without interest;(I)
who does not accept a bribe(J) against the innocent.
Whoever does these things
will never be shaken.(K)
A miktam[a] of David.
2 I say to the Lord, “You are my Lord;(N)
apart from you I have no good thing.”(O)
3 I say of the holy people(P) who are in the land,(Q)
“They are the noble ones in whom is all my delight.”
4 Those who run after other gods(R) will suffer(S) more and more.
I will not pour out libations of blood to such gods
or take up their names(T) on my lips.
5 Lord, you alone are my portion(U) and my cup;(V)
you make my lot(W) secure.
6 The boundary lines(X) have fallen for me in pleasant places;
surely I have a delightful inheritance.(Y)
7 I will praise the Lord, who counsels me;(Z)
even at night(AA) my heart instructs me.
8 I keep my eyes always on the Lord.
With him at my right hand,(AB) I will not be shaken.(AC)
9 Therefore my heart is glad(AD) and my tongue rejoices;
my body also will rest secure,(AE)
10 because you will not abandon me to the realm of the dead,(AF)
nor will you let your faithful[b] one(AG) see decay.(AH)
11 You make known to me the path of life;(AI)
you will fill me with joy in your presence,(AJ)
with eternal pleasures(AK) at your right hand.(AL)
