A Miktam of David. 1

Protect me, O God, for in you I take refuge. 2 I say to the LORD, “You are my Lord; I have no good apart from you.” a Gk Syr Jerome Tg: Heb flee to your mountain, O bird

3

As for the holy ones in the land, they are the noble, in whom is all my delight.

4

Those who choose another god multiply their sorrows; b Syr: Heb hold counsels their drink offerings of blood I will not pour out or take their names upon my lips.

5

The LORD is my chosen portion and my cup; you hold my lot. 6 The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; I have a goodly heritage.

7

I bless the LORD who gives me counsel; in the night also my heart instructs me. 8 I keep the LORD always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. 9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my soul rejoices; my body also rests secure. 10 For you do not give me up to Sheol, or let your faithful one see the Pit.

11

You show me the path of life. In your presence there is fullness of joy; in your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
