You Will Not Abandon My Soul
A Miktam of David.
161Preserve me, O God, for in you I itake refuge.
2I say to the Lord, “You are my Lord;
jI have no good apart from you.”
3As for kthe saints in the land, they are the excellent ones,
in whom is all my delight.2
4The sorrows of those who run after3 another god shall multiply;
their drink offerings of blood I will not pour out
or ltake their names on my lips.
5The Lord is mmy chosen portion and my ncup;
you hold my olot.
6pThe lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;
indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance.
7I bless the Lord who qgives me counsel;
in rthe night also my sheart instructs me.4
8tI have uset the Lord always before me;
because he is at my vright hand, I shall not be wshaken.
9Therefore my heart is glad, and my xwhole being5 rejoices;
my flesh also dwells secure.
10For you will not abandon my soul to ySheol,
zor let your aholy one see bcorruption.6
11You make known to me cthe path of life;
in your presence there is dfullness of joy;
at your right hand are epleasures forevermore.
