16 Keep me safe, God, for I take refuge in you. 2 I told the Lord, “You are my master,[b] I have nothing good apart from you.” 3 As for the saints that are in the land, they are noble, and all my delight is in them. 4 Those who hurry after another god[c] will have many sorrows; I will not present[d] their drink offerings of blood, nor will my lips speak[e] their names. 5 The Lord is my inheritance and my cup; you support my lot. 6 The boundary lines have fallen in pleasant places for me; truly, I have a beautiful heritage. 7 I will bless the Lord who has counseled me; indeed, my conscience instructs[f] me during the night. 8 I have set the Lord before me continuously; because he stands at my right hand, I will stand firm.[g] 9 Therefore, my heart is glad, my whole being[h] rejoices, and my body will dwell securely. 10 For you will not leave my soul in Sheol,[i] you will not allow your holy one to experience corruption.[j]
11 You cause me to know the path of life; in your presence is joyful abundance, at your right hand there are pleasures forever.
