Salmos 16

1 A Miktam of David.

2 Preserve me, O God, for in thee I take refuge.

3 I say to the LORD, "Thou art my Lord; I have no good apart from thee."

4 As for the saints in the land, they are the noble, in whom is all my delight.

5 Those who choose another god multiply their sorrows; their libations of blood I will not pour out or take their names upon my lips.

6 The LORD is my chosen portion and my cup; thou holdest my lot.

7 The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage.

8 I bless the LORD who gives me counsel; in the night also my heart instructs me.

9 I keep the LORD always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.

10 Therefore my heart is glad, and my soul rejoices; my body also dwells secure.

11 For thou dost not give me up to Sheol, or let thy godly one see the Pit. [ (Psalms 16:12) Thou dost show me the path of life; in thy presence there is fulness of joy, in thy right hand are pleasures for evermore. ]
