American Standard Version

Psalms 16

David, in distrust of merits, and hatred of idolatry, fleeth to God for preservation.

Psalms 16:1 {Michtam of David.} Preserve me, O God; for in thee do I take refuge. Psalms 16:2 [O my soul], thou hast said unto Jehovah, Thou art my Lord: I have no good beyond thee. Psalms 16:3 As for the saints that are in the earth, They are the excellent in whom is all my delight. Psalms 16:4 Their sorrows shall be multiplied that give gifts for another [god]: Their drink-offerings of blood will I not offer, Nor take their names upon my lips.

He sheweth the hope of his calling, of the resurrection, and life everlasting.

Psalms 16:5 Jehovah is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: Thou maintainest my lot. Psalms 16:6 The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; Yea, I have a goodly heritage. Psalms 16:7 I will bless Jehovah, who hath given me counsel; Yea, my heart instructeth me in the night seasons. Psalms 16:8 I have set Jehovah always before me: Because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. Psalms 16:9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth; My flesh also shall dwell in safety. Psalms 16:10 For thou wilt not leave my soul to Sheol; Neither wilt thou suffer thy holy one to see corruption. Psalms 16:11 Thou wilt show me the path of life: In thy presence is fulness of joy; In thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
