1 Preserve me, Oh God. I flee to You for protection.
Last updated: Apr, 2013
1 Michtam of David. 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.
King James Version
1 A Secret Treasure of David. Preserve me, O God, for I did trust in Thee.
2 Thou hast said to Jehovah, 'My Lord Thou [art];' My good [is] not for thine own sake;
3 For the holy ones who [are] in the land, And the honourable, all my delight [is] in them.
4 Multiplied are their griefs, [Who] have hastened backward; I pour not out their libations of blood, Nor do I take up their names on my lips.
5 Jehovah [is] the portion of my share, and of my cup, Thou -- Thou dost uphold my lot.
6 Lines have fallen to me in pleasant places, Yea, a beauteous inheritance [is] for me.
7 I bless Jehovah who hath counselled me; Also [in] the nights my reins instruct me.
8 I did place Jehovah before me continually, Because -- at my right hand I am not moved.
9 Therefore hath my heart been glad, And my honour doth rejoice, Also my flesh dwelleth confidently:
10 For Thou dost not leave my soul to Sheol, Nor givest thy saintly one to see corruption.
11 Thou causest me to know the path of life; Fulness of joys [is] with Thy presence, Pleasant things by Thy right hand for ever!
