The LORD the Psalmist's Portion in Life and Deliverer in Death.
A Mikhtam F126 of David.
1 Preserve R318 me, O God, for I R319 take refuge in You.
2 I F127 said to the LORD, "You are my F128 Lord;
I have R320 no good besides You."
3 As for the saints R321 F129 who are in the earth,
They F130 are the majestic ones in R322 whom is all my delight.
4 The sorrows R323 F131 of those who have bartered F132 for another god will be multiplied;
I shall not pour out their drink offerings of blood, R324
Nor will I take R325 their names upon my lips.
5 The LORD is the portion R326 of my inheritance and my cup; R327
You support my lot. R328
6 The lines R329 have fallen to me in pleasant places;
Indeed, my heritage is beautiful R330 to me.
7 I will bless the LORD who has counseled R331 me;
Indeed, my mind R332 F133 instructs me in the night.
8 I R333 have set R334 the LORD continually before me;
Because He is at R335 my right hand, I R336 will not be shaken.
9 Therefore my R337 heart is glad and my R338 glory rejoices;
My flesh also will dwell R339 securely.
10 For You will R340 not abandon my soul to Sheol; F134
Nor will You allow R341 F135 Your Holy F136 One to undergo F137 decay.
11 You will make known to me the R342 path of life;
In Your R343 presence is fullness of joy;
In Your right hand there are pleasures R344 forever.
