I will bless the Lord who has (A)advised me;
Indeed, my [a](B)mind instructs me in the night.
(C)I have (D)set the Lord continually before me;
Because He is (E)at my right hand, (F)I will not be shaken.
Therefore (G)my heart is glad and (H)my glory rejoices;
My flesh also will (I)dwell securely.
10 For You (J)will not abandon my soul to [b]Sheol;
You will not [c](K)allow Your [d]Holy One to [e]undergo decay.
11 You will make known to me (L)the way of life;
In (M)Your presence is fullness of joy;
In Your right hand there are (N)pleasures forever.
