A mik′tam of David.
1Keep me, O God, for I have taken refuge in you.
4Pains become many to those [who], when there is someone else, do hurry [after him].
I shall not pour out their drink offerings of blood,
And I shall not carry their names upon my lips.
5Jehovah is the portion of my allotted share and of my cup.
You are holding fast my lot.
6The measuring lines themselves have fallen for me in pleasant places.
Really, [my own] possession has proved agreeable to me.
7I shall bless Jehovah, who has given me advice.
Really, during the nights my kidneys have corrected me.
8I have placed Jehovah in front of me constantly.
Because [he] is at my right hand, I shall not be made to totter.
9Therefore my heart does rejoice, and my glory is inclined to be joyful.
Also, my own flesh will reside in security.
10For you will not leave my soul in She′ol.
You will not allow your loyal one to see the pit.
11You will cause me to know the path of life.
Rejoicing to satisfaction is with your face;
There is pleasantness at your right hand forever.
