Psalm 16:1-2 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Psalm 16[a]

God the Supreme Good

A miktam[b] of David.

I

Keep me safe, O God;
    in you I take refuge.
I say to the Lord,
    you are my Lord,
    you are my only good.

Footnotes:

  1. Psalm 16 In the first section, the psalmist rejects the futile worship of false gods (Ps 16:2–5), preferring Israel’s God (Ps 16:1), the giver of the land (Ps 16:6). The second section reflects on the wise and life-giving presence of God (Ps 16:7–11).
  2. 16:1 Miktam: a term occurring six times in Psalm superscriptions, always with “David.” Its meaning is unknown.

Psalm 16:9-10 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Therefore my heart is glad, my soul rejoices;
    my body also dwells secure,
10 For you will not abandon my soul to Sheol,
    nor let your devout one see the pit.[a]

Footnotes:

  1. 16:10 Nor let your devout one see the pit: Hebrew shahath means here the pit, a synonym for Sheol, the underworld. The Greek translation derives the word here and elsewhere from the verb shahath, “to be corrupt.” On the basis of the Greek, Acts 2:25–32; 13:35–37 apply the verse to Christ’s resurrection, “Nor will you suffer your holy one to see corruption.”
