|1||Michtam. Of David.
Keep me safe, O God: for in you I have put my faith.
|2||O my soul, you have said to the Lord, You are my Lord: I have no good but you.|
|3||As for the saints who are in the earth, they are the noble in whom is all my delight.|
|4||Their sorrows will be increased who go after another god: I will not take drink offerings from their hands, or take their names on my lips.|
|5||The Lord is my heritage and the wine of my cup; you are the supporter of my right.|
|6||Fair are the places marked out for me; I have a noble heritage.|
|7||I will give praise to the Lord who has been my guide; knowledge comes to me from my thoughts in the night.|
|8||I have put the Lord before me at all times; because he is at my right hand, I will not be moved.|
|9||Because of this my heart is glad, and my glory is full of joy: while my flesh takes its rest in hope.|
|10||For you will not let my soul be prisoned in the underworld; you will not let your loved one see the place of death.|
|11||You will make clear to me the way of life; where you are joy is complete; in your right hand there are pleasures for ever and ever.|
