Psalm 16: Preserve Me, O God - Poem by King David of Israel

1 Preserve me, O God:
for in thee do I put my trust.

2 O my soul, thou hast said unto the LORD,
Thou art my Lord: my goodness extendeth not to thee;

3 But to the saints that are in the earth,
and to the excellent, in whom is all my delight.

4 Their sorrows shall be multiplied
that hasten after another god:
their drink offerings of blood will I not offer,
nor take up their names into my lips.

5 The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance
and of my cup:
thou maintainest my lot.

6 The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places;
yea, I have a goodly heritage.

7 I will bless the LORD, who hath given me counsel:
my reins also instruct 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.

9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth:
my flesh also shall rest in hope.

10 For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell;
neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.

11 Thou wilt shew me the path of life:
in thy presence is fulness of joy;
at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

(KJV)
