The Lord is (A)my chosen portion and my (B)cup;
    you hold my (C)lot.
(D)The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;
    indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance.

I bless the Lord who (E)gives me counsel;
    in (F)the night also my (G)heart instructs me.[a]
(H)I have (I)set the Lord always before me;
    because he is at my (J)right hand, I shall not be (K)shaken.

Therefore my heart is glad, and my (L)whole being[b] rejoices;
    my flesh also dwells secure.
10 For you will not abandon my soul to (M)Sheol,
    (N)or let your (O)holy one see (P)corruption.[c]

11 You make known to me (Q)the path of life;
    in your presence there is (R)fullness of joy;
    at your right hand are (S)pleasures forevermore.

And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, (A)the dwelling place[a] of God is with man.
