New International Version
18 Surely you place them on slippery ground;(A)
you cast them down to ruin.(B)
19 How suddenly(C) are they destroyed,
completely swept away(D) by terrors!
20 They are like a dream(E) when one awakes;(F)
when you arise, Lord,
you will despise them as fantasies.(G)
23 Yet I am always with you;
you hold me by my right hand.(J)
24 You guide(K) me with your counsel,(L)
and afterward you will take me into glory.
25 Whom have I in heaven but you?(M)
And earth has nothing I desire besides you.(N)
26 My flesh and my heart(O) may fail,(P)
but God is the strength(Q) of my heart
and my portion(R) forever.
