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

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

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