1 Keep me safe, my God, ¶ for in you I take refuge.
2 I say to the LORD, "You are my Lord; ¶ apart from you I have no good thing."
3 I say of the holy people who are in the land, "They are the noble ones in whom is all my delight."
4 Those who run after other gods will suffer more and more. I will not pour out libations of blood to such gods ¶ or take up their names on my lips.
5 LORD, you alone are my portion and my cup; ¶ you make my lot secure.
6 The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance.
7 I will praise the LORD, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me.
8 I keep my eyes always on the LORD. With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
9 Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; ¶ my body also will rest secure,
10 because you will not abandon me to the realm of the dead, nor will you let your faithful [^1] one see decay.
11 You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, ¶ with eternal pleasures at your right hand.
