1Preserve me, O God, for in You I put my trust.
The Hope of the Faithful, and the Messiah’s VictoryA ⚓Michtam of David.
2O my soul, you have said to the Lord,
“You are my Lord,
⚓My goodness is nothing apart from You.”
3As for the saints who are on the earth,
“They are the excellent ones, in ⚓whom is all my delight.”
4Their sorrows shall be multiplied who hasten after another god;
Their drink offerings of ⚓blood I will not offer,
⚓Nor take up their names on my lips.
5O Lord, You are the portion of my inheritance and my cup;
You maintain my lot.
6The lines have fallen to me in pleasant places;
Yes, I have a good inheritance.
7I will bless the Lord who has given me counsel;
My heart also instructs me in the night seasons.
8⚓I have set the Lord always before me;
Because He is at my right hand I shall not be moved.
9Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoices;
My flesh also will rest in hope.
10⚓For You will not leave my soul in Sheol,
Nor will You allow Your Holy One to see corruption.
11You will show me the ⚓path of life;
In Your presence is fullness of joy;
At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
